Skylark Class Teacher: Miss Scott
Fox Class Teacher: Mrs Trim
Welcome to Year 6
The teachers in Year 6 are Miss Scott and Mrs Trim. We are lucky enough to be supported by two wonderful Teaching Assistants: Mrs Grunwell and Mrs Collings.
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 year the tests take place in the week beginning 10th May. This is a great opportunity for the children to display the skills and values mentioned above and take pride in their learning achievements.
Term 6 will see the Year 6 children rehearse and perform their annual production. This year’s production will be announced in Term 5!
Every year, in the summer term, the children in Year 6 take part in a 4 day residential visit which is always enjoyed by all! This year we will be visiting Simonsbath again, 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 Year 6 offers them and we look forward to supporting them along this journey!
