Year 6

Welcome to Year 6!


Year 6 is an exciting, challenging and fast-paced environment: we are always busy! Our most important job is getting you Year 7 ready, so we focus on independence (particularly getting yourself organised) and resilience. Because of this, we have high expectations for your work in class as well as your home learning.


Our timetable stays very broad, so you will continue to learn regularly in all your favourite subjects. We have some excellent topics planned, for example: learning about the Amazon rainforest in geography; investigating the time of the Victorians in history and finding out all about the heart in science. 


Let's have a fantastic year!
