Year 6

yearsix

 

This is the last year in the school for the children, many of whom will have been with us since they were 4.  Most of them will have their 11th birthday during the school year.  The class teachers are Mr C Baker, Mrs J Watson and Mrs E Holdcroft. They are ably supported by the TAs  Mrs Graham, Mrs Connor, Mrs Butcher and Mrs Burnham.

This is a very intense year for the pupils, starting with the 11+ tests which occur in the first weeks of the year. The first term is also when secondary school choices are made and the final term is when the children take their Key Stage 2 SATs. These are closely followed by a week's residential trip to a residential centre in Wales which is always enormously popular with the children and forms a major part of their progress towards being secondary school students

The final assembly can be an emotional one for children, parents and staff alike.  There is some sadness about leaving the school but this is always countered with excitement about what is to come and pride in the achievements and progress that have been made.  As a school, we are always very proud of the things that the children go on to achieve, and we are always delighted when they keep in contact with us as they grow towards being young adults.

Maths homework is given out on Thursday to be completed by the following Tuesday.

Reading:

In your pencil case:

Please ensure you come to school with the equipment you need in your pencil case:  handwriting or fountain pen, whiteboard pens, and glue sticks seem to be the most commonly forgotten items!
