Year Six Class
Year 6 is an exciting final year at the school for our pupils. As well as going on amazing trips, pupils have the chance to develop key life skills, such as taking responsibility for running the school’s fruit tuck shop, being team captains and being sport’s leaders.
We base our learning around rich, vibrant topics:
In the Autumn term we investigate global travel. During this geography topic we read maps, make links between different parts of the world and investigate fair trade.
In the Spring term, our topic focus is Ancient Benin. We also ensure the children are fully prepared for their forthcoming KS2 SATs exams, so that they can achieve their full potential.
In the Summer term, we focus on Wars Across the Years, linking our topic closely with our English. We read Goodnight Mr Tom and explore what life as an evacuee was like. In addition, we work hard on preparing pupils for their move to secondary school with a number of stimulating transition projects.
We are extremely fortunate that we have a full set of iPads. The use of this technology fosters independent learning, as well as the development of core ICT skills.
