Year 5 and Year 6 – Widdale, Arkengarthdale, Wensleydale

In Year 5 and 6 we continue to build on what we have learned in Year 3 and 4 and connect new knowledge using a progression model.  You can find further information by clicking on the curriculum tab.  Our sequential curriculum enables our Year 5 and 6 children to ‘know more and remember more’ by regularly ‘revisiting and recalling’ core knowledge. Knowledge is incrementally built-in small chunks and consolidated through ‘deliberate practice’, ensuring that key facts are transferred into long-term memory. Our children therefore become fluent learners who can draw on connected knowledge and apply it in context.

We use knowledge mats to help us to know more and remember more.  Here are some of our knowledge mats for Autumn Term B.
