WHAT ARE YEAR 6 LEARNING?
Year 6 have the busiest curriculum of all, on this page you will find everything that you need to know to bring yourself up to speed with your child’s learning in their final year at Primary School before they make the transition into the Secondary phase of their education.
Year 6 is a great time to develop and improve upon the skills that have been acquired in other years through the school. We aim to embed our understanding of key themes in all subjects and broaden our learning. This is done in a fun way whereby the children enjoy all lessons and actively engage in them.
Throughout the year we study Victorian life (using Street Child by Berlie Doherty as a stimulus) and focus on all aspects of this important historical time, incorporating writing, history and art within this theme. We then move onto topics about rainforests and castles, incorporating appropriate learning trips and experiences where possible. These cross curricular topics are completed at the same time as White Rose maths (with the aim of achieving mastery within topics) and focused science and French lessons with specialist teachers.
Each week we participate in energetic PE sessions including invasion and non invasion sports as well as dance, gymnastics and outdoor adventure activities over the course of the year.
In addition to building academic knowledge, we hope that Year 6 will be a time of preparation for the adventures and new challenges that will take place in secondary school. With this in mind, pupils undertake community cop card challenges, PSHE topics and a residential trip to Kingswood which challenges and inspires the children and is great fun!
It is amazing year that the children look back on with real fondness and wonderful memories!
