Welcome to our Year 6 Class Page.
As children move into their final year of primary school, we have an exciting year ahead of us!
Our first term will be packed with interesting and thought-provoking topics. We will continue with a rich and broad curriculum, engaging in topics including ‘World War 2’ in History, ‘Loving’ and ‘Vocation and Commitment’ in RE, ‘Light’ in Science and 'Code Breaking and Password Hacking' in Computing.
This term, we will be bringing our History topic to life by visiting the Imperial War Museum. We will also be holding a World War 2 living history day, when the children will experience a wartime school day as an evacuee. This will link to our study of ‘Goodnight Mr Tom’ by Michelle Magorian, our English core text.
Throughout their time in Year 6, we aim to ensure that our children have all the skills and knowledge needed to make a successful transition to secondary school. One way we do this is through our Governors’ Awards programme. The Governors' Awards is a year-long programme that encourages all Year 6 children to develop new skills, increase their independence and carry out acts of service in our community and beyond. In order to achieve the award, children develop their leadership skills in school through activities such as being monitors for younger classes and representing their peers on pupil committees. We also encourage them to use their initiative to organise school events such as movie nights and cake sales. The Governors’ Awards programme is shared with children and parents via Google Classroom and the children’s achievements will be celebrated in an award ceremony in July.
Year 6 is a year full of opportunity! Children take part in musical performances, lead liturgical celebrations, represent the school in competitive sports and contribute to the wider life of our school. It really is a fantastic year!
