We have three classes in year 6; Ash Class is taught by Mrs. Anderson, Hazel Class is taught by Mrs Tobin and Cedar class is taught by Mrs Gaston-Ross.
Life in Year 6
Year 6 is an extremely important year, preparing each child for smooth transition to High School. There are many responsibilities and opportunities to develop independence and maturity including many sports teams, School Council membership, House and Sports Captains, Gold Cap duties and Prefect duties.
During the Autumn Term, we begin the year with an exciting residential/outdoor activity trip to Condover Hall in Shropshire. This is the main highlight of Year 6 and something that the children remember for many years after. We have found that this experience develops their independence, team work, year group cohesion and self confidence.
Children in Year 6 need to work particularly hard in all areas especially English and Maths, as they have assessments in Summer Term. Topics covered in Year 6 include Condover Hall, All About Me, Climate Change, Crime and Punishment Through the Ages and The Mayans.
Homework is an exceptionally important part of Year 6 and is in preparation for the transition to high school. Each week children are expected to read every night, learn spellings, carry out subject specific research, become more independent and take some responsibility for their own progress.
Welcome to Ash Class!

I am really looking forward to working with my class on many engaging projects. Please see life in Year 6 for further information.
