Taking Pride in Knowledge
Years 5-6 | Ages 9-11
Personal Organisation | Self-discipline | Motivation | Independent Learning | Mindfulness
Year 5 brings new experiences with specialist teaching for all subjects. Time with Form Tutors is an element of the nurturing framework that supports pupils as they build on their personal organisation, self-discipline and motivation.
We nurture individual aptitudes, fostering a thirst for learning whilst developing the skills pupils need across the curriculum. Those who require additional help with Maths and English have tailored support.
Pupils are taught by subject-specialists in all lessons and personal organisational skills improve as pupils move more widely about the school.
Games take place three times a week - a strong fixtures programme fosters team spirt, physical fitness and collaboration.
In Year 6 preparation for external assessment is supported by a robust pastoral framework. Pupils are prepared to do their very best in senior school pre-tests, without this detracting from the wider and fully enriching curriculum that pupils enjoy. Part of the 11+ preparation involves our “Discover you” programme, designed to help pupils develop self-confidence and an increasing awareness of themselves through a series of engaging self-discovery activities.
From Year 6 our Pupil iPad programme emphasises personalised learning, heightened organisation, creative productivity, extended collaborative possibilities and effective communication. Pupils learn to differentiate digital tools which creatively demonstrate their knowledge and understanding, and to exploit those which support their individualised learning pathways here at Feltonfleet. Our values of Responsibility and Respect sit at the heart of our Pupil iPad Programme, elements we believe are vital in any authentic programme of digital citizenship.
Our many enrichment opportunities unlock potential and include activities and trips in sports, art, drama and music. As Year 6 closes, pupils are ready to take on the challenges and leadership responsibilities of the Upper School.
"We chose Feltonfleet because of its end product: the children are polite and look you in the eye”.
