Welcome to Year 6
In Year 6, we come to the end of our primary school education and begin the transition to secondary school. We continue to develop our skills to be independent mature learners, who will have the skills to be the next global citizens. It is also the year of the Year 6 SATs. We prepare for the milestone alongside a broad and balanced curriculum.
In Maths, we continue to build upon our fluency and reasoning skills and start to secure our knowledge. There is a strong emphasis on mental arithmetic skills to help prepare children for the SATs Arithmetic Paper. Our English lessons continue to focus on a wide range of vocabulary-rich texts, which allow children to fine tune their writing style, and include a wider range of vocabulary, punctuation and grammar features. In Science, we explore the classifications of living things, the history of evolution, light, and the circulatory system; alongside considering how to keep our bodies healthy.
Below you will find information that will be relevant for children in Year 6.
