Welcome to Year 6 – St George (Mrs Grove and Mrs Allison) and St Bruno (Miss Botham). This year the team includes Mrs Terry, Mrs English, Mrs Castelino, Mrs Maguire and Mrs Peace.
Mrs Grove is currently away on maternity leave – welcome Thomas! – and Mrs Carter is covering her this term alongside Mrs Allison.
Year 6 is the final year in the primary school and we endeavour to prepare the children for a smooth transition to secondary school. The children are encouraged to be the best they can be, take risks in their learning and grow to become more independent. The children take on leadership roles in the School Council and support other year groups as playground “leaders”. They are encouraged to rise to the challenge of becoming responsible citizens.
In the course of the year there are visits to museums, workshops and activities planned connected to our topics. They are inspired by their visit to the Spike in the Autumn term and lead the school throughout the year. Finally,during the summer term the children become very excited about their residential trip to France, the end of year musical production and the Leavers’ Mass.
Please read our Curriculum Newsletter for the current term together with our presentation for parents from the Curriculum evening at the start of the year.
All the news and pictures from last year’s residential in France can be found on the France page – open it here.
