Welcome to Year 6!
Year 6 is an important year for our pupils and marks the transition towards secondary school. We aim to ensure that we send our children on to their new schools as responsible, organised and engaged pupils ready to face their new challenges.
During this year, we encourage our children to take a greater responsibility in school life. They carry out a variety of jobs around our school, including paper recycling, music monitors, chairs and library monitors; they even deliver messages at lunchtime!
Year 6 is obviously a very important year as the children prepare for their end of Key Stage SATs. Whilst recognising and working hard at this, we also strive to give the children an enjoyable and memorable final year at their Junior School. We offer all children the opportunity to enjoy and experience a four day residential trip to York. In addition, at the end of Year 6, all children take part in a musical production, which makes a fantastic end to their four years with us.
The teaching staff are: Mrs Stirzaker (Year Leader), Mrs Pickering (Class Teacher), Mrs Durose (Class Teacher) and Miss James (Teaching Assistant).
Year 6 Scary Stories
In Year 6, we have been inspired by Gary Crew's book 'Watertower' to write our own scary stories- we have used his writing techniques and vocabulary to improve our own skills. From there we have written independent stories which are sure to raise the hairs on the back of your neck! Take a read if you dare.
Year 6 had a fantastic day dressing up as their favourite book character. The children had a go at designing illustrations inspired by a range of illustrators and participated in the World Book Day Live Lesson.
Inspiration Day- South America
Year 6 kicked off their new topic of South America with re-creating a piece of samba music with various musical instruments. They researched which foods come from this continent and later in the afternoon, they held their own carnival to display their carnival masks.
Worcester Wolves Basketball Players Visit Year 6
Year 6 had a fantastic afternoon playing alongside professional basketball players. The children completed a range of activities to develop their skills and even had the opportunity to participate in a Q&A session.
Year 6 Maths Lesson
In Maths we have been looking at co-ordinates, rotation, reflection and translation. We decided to make it as practical as we could!
