Beckfoot Trust is an organisation that links a group of local Bradford schools together so that they can collectively improve the life chances for young people within their schools. Our aim is to create a group of truly remarkable schools each with a genuine comprehensive intake. They will be wonderful places for young people to learn and grow up in. We want to make a difference. We want to create something special.

Children & Learning

Genies (Year 5)

GeniesWelcome to our class page

Welcome to the Year 5 Genies! We are taught by Mrs Jones and are supported by Mrs Sharp. In our classroom, it is important that all children feel that they can access every lesson. We therefore adapt our teaching approach to ensure that all learners can be part of the journey, encouraging children to succeed and to challenge themselves. Respect, resilience, and engagement are all key attributes that we aim to demonstrate across all of our lessons. First thing in the morning, we have our maths lessons, in which we work hard to explore a range of representations and methods to tackle a given problem. After break, we have our English and Whole Class Reading lessons. The more texts we are exposed to, the more our vocabulary develops and our understanding deepens - which is key to us becoming effective writers!  Our afternoons cover the wider curriculum, such as Topic, Science, ICT and Art, and PE is on Wednesdays and Fridays. During these wider curriculum sessions we cover a whole range of subject matter over the course of the year.  This diverse range of subjects keeps our learning relevant, enjoyable and interesting.
