Welcome to Year 6!
Welcome to Y6! The final chapter of primary school is a year of exciting opportunities. The children will enjoy experiences that are rewarding and challenging so that everyone can shine. It will certainly be a year they won't forget. We have diverse topics (including Stone Age - Iron Age, American Trailblazers and WW2) with a range of engaging lessons. They have the opportunity to go on a residential trip and the year will end with lots of exciting projects.
As well as supporting children to reach their academic potential, the children will gain more independence, for example, each child will have their own iPad in school. They are also given many additional responsibilities around the school to help ensure the children are ready for their transition to secondary school. In the final term we will explore many themes to aid their confidence heading to a new school.
The children will be expected to work hard, but in return, they will be rewarded with many happy memories, lasting friendships, and an increased confidence to take on their next adventure.

Year 6 has started with our Stone Age - Iron Age topic. We have already enjoyed a pre-historic 'wow' day where the children were invited to come dressed up. They had the opportunity to cook through the ages on an open fire, trying many of the foods that would have been available at the time. Year 6 pretended to have different beaks in an experiment to start our evolution work in science. Finally, the children handled artefacts from each time period and placed them on a timeline.
