Key Stage Two

At Hollinswood Primary we plan a creative curriculum that links foundation subjects in a theme.  Each subject is planned with careful consideration of the Key Skills for that subject, this means that lessons are not differentiated necessarily by age but by the skills that are appropriate for each child. For individual pupils, consideration is given to a flexible timetable to suit needs. This could be on a one to one basis, a small group within class, or close to the class. It could also be working in a quiet area away from distractions. We work hard to include all children and develop their independence within class.


Years 3 and 4

This term, our theme is ‘Invaders and Settlers’. We will be learning all about the Anglo Saxons, where they came from, where they settled and their way of life.  Portals from the Past will be coming into school to lead workshops to bring the Anglo Saxons to ‘life’.  In Y3/4, we will be celebrating great work.  Every two weeks, each class teacher will select a child’s work to be displayed on our new display in Y3/4.  Pupils will be selected for showing great improvement in their written work. This will be on our Twitter feed for all to see!  

Years 5 and 6

This term, the children in year 5 and 6 will explore the local area of Telford. They will have the opportunity to take part in a field trip in the Telford Town Park and explore how Telford has changed over time. They will learn about what it was like to be a miner in historical Telford and will analyse historical data about mining. Children will also have the opportunity to spend a night away in Wilderhope Manor in Much Wenlock where they will find out about Thomas Smallman and where 'Major's Leap' got its name! The children will learn how to decoupage and will apply this skill in creating a piece of art of their own. The class text we will focus on is 'The Golden Acorn' by Catherine Cooper, who is an author originally from Telford!
