Welcome to Margaretting Church of England Primary School

Year 5/6:


The new National Curriculum will run on a two year cycle due to our split year group classes. The links below give an overview of the coverage of the New National Curriculum.


Enquiry based learning is the basis for how many areas of the curriculum are taught and many subjects are linked through a range of cross curricular opportunities. Termly topic areas are planned for and these enable the cross curricular links to take place so that pupils do not see subjects in isolation
