Welcome to Year 6 


The teachers in Year 6 are Mrs Carpenter and Miss Carruthers. The purpose of Year 6 is to refine the skills and learning values the children have been taught throughout their time at school. Specifically, we will be promoting independence, resilience, pride and self-organisation. These skills will well-equip the children for their transition into secondary school.

With this in mind, during Term 5, the children will take the End of Key Stage 2 tests for Maths, Reading and Spelling, Punctuation & Grammar (Writing will be assessed throughout the year rather than in a final test).  This is a great opportunity for the children to display the skills and values mentioned above and take pride in their learning achievements.

Every year, in the summer term, the children in Year 6 take part in a 2 night/3 day residential visit which is always enjoyed by all!  This year we will be visiting Simonsbath, where the children will enjoy a range of outdoor activities enabling them to develop independence and learn new skills.

We are sure that the children will rise to the challenges of Year 6 and we look forward to supporting them along this journey!
