The Curriculum

At Mersey Vale, we are proud to follow a curriculum personalised to our learners. Throughout the year we have many exciting opportunities to enrich our learning with theme weeks and educational visits. All children in Y6 receive additional one-to-one support from the class teacher to consolidate their learning and help children catch-up with any missed learning during 2019-2020 due to Covid-19.

Year 5/6 Words

There are lots of key words children need to be able to spell by the end of Year Six in addition to spelling rules and patterns they are learning. Here they are, grouped into five lists with activities the children can complete at home.

 Alongside being able to spell these words, children will be using these within their work to enhance the meaning of their writing.
