In Years 5 and 6 our children immerse themselves in a formal, rich and invigorating curriculum.  As they embark on this exciting journey, we aspire for our children to be independent learners and good communicators being kind, integral and enthusiastic members of our community. 

Through their unique personalities and drive for success, our children are challenged to reach their full potential by applying their skills and knowledge, embedding them within all areas of the curriculum.  We encourage our children to take tremendous pride in their achievements and endeavour to support each other to grow as well-rounded individuals.

Years 5 and 6 are fast-paced and challenging as our children work incredibly hard to prepare themselves for the end of their primary school journey.  Children in Year 6 take on many roles of responsibilities within school and participate fully in the life of the school in its wider community.   As a year group they begin preparation for secondary school life, ensuring that they are inspirational role models to our younger peers.

We work hard to fully embed skills that our children have learnt during their time at the school and strive to achieve mastery approach to learning across all subject areas.  Throughout the year, the children deepen their reasoning and reflective skills, showing a true understanding of how to improve and advance their learning.

Inspired by the huge breadth of skills our children have learnt on their journey through Bearwood, our children leave the school as kind, integral, and successful individuals ready to face the challenges of secondary school and adult life, becoming successful, compassionate and productive citizens.


Some of our Year 6 children were lucky enough to take part in the School Games Wokingham Young Leaders Academy this week.

At The Holt, the children had the chance to learn from secondary school sports coaches, developing their leaderships skills with a view to returning to Bearwood to run lunchtime activities with KS1 and LKS2.

All the children from Bearwood put in a great effort and showed our school in a fantastic light. Mr Bell and Mrs Jackson were very proud and impressed with the children.

We are looking forward to seeing the activities the children put on in school for their younger peers. They will have a second training sessions in November to show off what they have been putting into practise in school.
