Welcome to Year 6

Year 6 curriculum newsletter for Autumn 2018

It doesn’t seem long ago that the children were starting in reception and here they are embarking on their final year of primary school…
The year 6 team of Mr Pike, Mrs Hennessy, Mrs Sharpe, Mrs Phillips, Mrs Ilsley and Mrs Baxter are dedicated to ensuring that all children have the best opportunity possible to achieve their full potential, emotionally, socially and academically.
Although a key focus for year 6 will be on SATs and preparing the children for the demands of secondary school, we will also try to ensure that there is fun along the way and provide opportunities for positive and lasting memories of their time at primary school. The highlight of the year is without a doubt the PGL residential trip in June, where children will be encouraged to further develop their independence, self-confidence, sense of responsibility and team work skills.

Our topics for this year will be:
Autumn – Romans
Spring – Mayans and Chocolate
Summer – Ancient Greece

This is always a particularly busy year and your continued support is much appreciated. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any problems or queries.
