Mr Booth and Mrs Taylor

What happens after SATs in Year 6?

As we enter the final half term of the year we have still have much to look forward to in school. There will be much to celebrate at our Graduation event (18th July), end of year performance of ‘Oliver with a Twist’ (17th July) and of course our residential to Eskdale! We will also be preparing for the transition to secondary school with work already planned for secondary schools to come into school and teach the children! It promises to be a very busy and exciting final few weeks for the children and staff!


Our residential to Eskdale is just weeks away. Many thanks to those parents who were able to attend our Parents Meeting before the holidays. With water activities, mountain climbing and bush-tucker challenges planned, it promises to be a great week away!  Should you have any questions about the residential please contact the school.

Year 6 - Curriculum

So after SATs Year 6 just mess about…right? WRONG! It’s a half term full of fun, learning and hard work in preparation for the transition to secondary school. Our topic work will be based around the theme of Tomorrow’s World. We will look at technology and how it has changed and what predictions we can make about the future! In Maths we’ll be looking at how to use calculators and more formal methods for calculations English will be based around two books. Kensuke’s Kingdom for our reading sessions and The Arrival for our main English lessons. Both books are amazing tales and have one or two surprises within them!

As part of the whole school visit, Dylan’s Reptiles came into Year 6. The children learned all about how these animals have adapted to environments they live in and also what the special features of each animal is. All children were very brave when handling the creatures. The children enjoyed meeting all the animals but especially one of the giant snails which tried it’s best to escape…but didn’t get very far!
