Teacher: Mr Vokes
Curriculum Overview for 2017-2018
Teaching and learning in Year 6 at Swanton Morley VC Primary School follows the National Curriculum (2014) programme of study for Key Stage 2. Further information about the National Curriculum in Key Stage 2 can be found on the Department for Education web site.
2018 Key Stage 2 Tests
During the course of the year Mr Vokes’ class will be preparing for their SATs in May. The 2018 tests are likely to be similar in their format to those in 2017, although changes can never be ruled out! As before, children will be given scaled scores where 100 is an indication that children have reached the expected standard. You will be given your child’s raw score (the actual number of marks they get), alongside their scaled score and whether they have reached the national expected standard. Writing attainment will be measured by continuous assessment during the year – it is not tested.
All the tests (Maths, Reading and Grammar Punctuation and Spelling) will take place during the week beginning Monday 14th May.
Further information about the 2018 tests will be posted here as and when it becomes available.
Trips and Visits
Year 6 will be visiting the Imperial War Museum Duxford in the autumn term as part of their studies on the Battle of Britain (date to be confirmed). In the summer term Year 6 spend a week away camping at the Great Hautbois House Activities Centre near Coltishall (Monday 2nd July to Friday 6th July 2018).
