Welcome to Year 6!
When pupils enter Y6 we are trusted with jobs and responsibilities.
We enjoy these because we are treated like adults and younger children look up to us. Our jobs include office duty and play leaders. Our job rotas change regularly so we all get the chance to do different jobs. In Y6 we are expected to be more mature and it is all in preparation year for our move to Secondary School.
Pupils do a production at the end of every summer term, in which Y6 take the lead. It is great fun. We work as a team to put together the best production we can! We have previously done ‘Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat’, ‘Oliver’, ‘Great Great Britain’ and Shakespeare 4 Kidz “The Tempest”. Watch this space for 2016!
Every year, Y6 get the opportunity to go to Marrick Priory for a residential visit. We do outdoor activities such as rock climbing and canoeing which help us to be confident, brave and work better as a team. Some children have never been away from their parents before , so this experience can help make them more independent. We are going to Marrick Priory from 16th – 20th May 2016. We can’t wait!
The teachers in Y6 are Mrs. Mitchinson, Mrs. Donald, Mrs Stockwell and Mrs. Rahmani. They are always there to help us. They are very organised and know their stuff! The Staff are firm but fair but we all have a good laugh too! They are very helpful and will support you until you succeed. They always tell us we need to “Believe to Achieve” In Y6 we have to work our socks off!
Many Y6 pupils worry about their SATs tests in May. Kader teachers offer pre- learning classes during school time and after, to help us achieve the very best we can. SATs week will be 9th May 2016. The SATs tests are never as bad as we think they are going to be!
We don’t just learn in school, we go out and about.
This year we have been to Eden Camp as part of our History work and we were all ‘evacuated’ to Great Ayton and had a fabulous day talking to some actual evacuees!
Our Design and Technology project during the Autumn Term was to design an Air Raid shelter.
We all like to keep fit and be active and have fun! This year we have had a fantastic opportunity of working with a Para Olympian and have honed our wheel chair skills. We are also expert volleyballers thanks to our professional coach Stephen Talbot.
We always give a warm welcome to visitors and new pupils entering our Year 6 community. We got Outstanding OFSTED grade for our excellent behaviour and for being kind and considerate.
Before we leave to go to Secondary School, we visit our new schools and get to know the layout of the building, the teachers and the kinds of thing we will be doing. The Y7 teachers also come into our school to prepare us for our start in “Big School”. This helps us to feel more at home when we start in September.
Homework is a very important part of Year 6. We need to get into the good routine of being organised and independent learners. We will bring home Literacy and Numeracy on a Friday to be handed in the following Friday, Science will be brought home Thursday to be handed in the following Thursday and Spellings are handed out on a Friday for a test the following Friday. Wow! What a lot, but it will help us in the end.
