In Year Six we foster a caring, stimulating environment where pupils can learn in a place filled with happiness and mutual respect.
Experience is the teacher of all things.
Our school values are taught throughout our curriculum and continuously remind pupils how to further develop their personal, social and emotional development.
We prioritise the well-being of our pupils and aim to create strong relationships where our pupils can openly discuss their thoughts and feelings and know that they will always be listened to and made to feel safe.
We hope for our pupils to be much more independent in Year Six and we focus highly on growing the children’s mindset. When children stumble across more difficult challenges both academically and socially we work hard with our pupils to support them in overcoming hurdles. We believe in doing this so it will prepare them to tackle many different situations and scenarios both in and outside of the classroom and support them in becoming great citizens within our society.
As we approach the end of KS2 we focus highly in ensuring that our Year Six pupils have all of the fundamental knowledge and skills to best prepare them for their transition into Secondary School. In May, all pupils within Year Six take part in statutory assessments known as SATS. The pupils are assessed formally in the following areas; Reading, Writing and Maths. Parents are invited to a meeting at the school during the academic year called ‘Y6 SATS Parent Meeting’ so that they can be as well informed about all of the information in relation to the academic year. Usually in July, when school reports are sent home, parents receive information about how their child performed in the assessments.
The curriculum in Year Six has been designed with the assessments in mind using the national curriculum objectives. The children continue to learn through a range of topics which re-visit and build upon previous knowledge. Children will be exposed frequently to a variety of subjects including Maths, English, Art, Design Technology, Science, Music, PE, History, Languages (Spanish), Religious Studies and Geography.
Below you will find curriculum letters and knowledge organisers for each topic. These documents outline what your child will learn each half term. It also outlines what a typical day looks like for our Year Six children and contact information for your child’s class teacher. You will also find a long term plan which outlines which topics your child will be learning about throughout the course of their academic year.
