Year 6

Year 6 is taught by Mr Robertson.

In year 6, we focus on team work, consolidation of primary school skills and getting ready for the next step of our school life: high school.

Mornings are typically structured with reading, writing and maths lessons ensuring the children have the skills necessary before moving up to high school. Topic lessons in the afternoon cover the rest of the curriculum in a practical and stimulating way and equip the children with a broad and balanced curriculum.

Year 6 is an important year for our children and we strive to provide them all with the support they need and prepare them for their next steps.

We have outside learning once a week with ‘Pure Nature Learning’ where the children can gain experience of fire making, den building and water filtration among other survival skills.

The children have a term of swimming at our local swimming pool and gain certificates in this vital skill. In the summer term, the children have the opportunity to join us on a residential trip which typically lasts two nights away! In addition, during this term, the children take part in an end of primary school assembly and leavers’ production performed in front of friends and family.

Year 6 is an exciting year and it’s always a pleasure to guide the children through the final year of their primary schooling preparing them for their next stage in life, high school.
