Year 6

Welcome to year 6 - your final stop on the adventure through primary school!  

 

In year 6, we have a wonderfully engaging learning environment for the oldest members of our school community to thrive and finish primary school as the best learners they can possibly be. Our classroom learning and development of ourselves as individuals is at the heart of all that we do, preparing ourselves for the transition to secondary school and onwards.  

 

In year 6, we value independence, understanding, an acceptance that we are all different but equal in the eyes of God and kindness to all whose paths cross ours. As is the case throughout the school, we aim to live our school motto: ‘Let us protect with love all that God has given us’, in all that we do, from our learning and support in the classroom, through to how we set an example as role models to the younger children within our school.  

 

The teachers for Year 6 are:

                 

 Mr Turner (6T)  and Mrs Hanlon and Mrs Haines.     

Mr Turner is the Upper Key Stage 2 Coordinator whilst Mr Ingram is away.

 

Our topics are History-based but embrace many other curriculum areas. A summary of the content can be found here:

The more year 6 moves into the new calendar year, the more we look ahead. SATs feature, as do transitions to secondary school. We have the responsibility of fundraising for leavers’ events, which include the chance of going on a residential visit to Stone Farm in Devon and a Leavers play performance. 

 

The children overcome fears together, surprise themselves together, work together, play together, pray together and laugh together (a lot!) As great friends we love… LEARNING TOGETHER!
