Welcome to Year 6
This is where you will find the Class Teacher and SENDCo, Miss Osborn and Teaching Assistant, Mrs Cockerill waiting to support the children as they complete their final chapter of primary school.
As part of our Catholic ethos, the children live, love and learn in the Light of Christ by following the Christian values. This creates a nurturing school environment where children can thrive in their learning. Whilst embedding the fundamental British values of everyday life.
In English, the children dive deep into their imaginations, using key texts as a stimulus, by creating fantastic pieces of writing whilst embedding and consolidating the magnificent grammar that the English language has to offer. They will develop and demonstrate their ability to have particular effects on the reader to evidence a broad range of writing.
In Maths, the children will mainly consolidate their learning of the maths curriculum but will also be exposed to some new learning in readiness for secondary school. Some maths topics at the end of the year will look at real life scenarios to support our children in the future for example having wages and managing budgets further consolidating their previous knowledge.
In History and Geography, we will navigate through different civilisations starting with the Ancient Maya, moving into learning about The Amazon, looking at what life is like there. Next, into The Victorians, then how we can protect the environment. Lastly, studying World War II in particular The Blitz, following into Our World in the Future and what this might look like.
Throughout the year, the work in Year 6 becomes more challenging and the children will be provided with methods, techniques and facts from all subject areas to enable them to reach their full primary potential and ready them for Year 7.
During this final year, the children will be prepared academically and socially for their next chapter by building their confidence, exploring how to solve more challenging work and how to adapt to a larger environment.
