Year 6 Curriculum Map

The Curriculum Map gives an overview of the programmes of study for the year.  In some subjects, notably Science, due to resourcing implications, different teachers may teach different schemes of work at varying times within the school year (not just in the term indicated), but will have completed the full programme of study by the end of the summer term.  In some subjects e.g. Food, the students are taught on a carousel with study units being half a term long.
