In Year 6, we challenge the children in all areas of the curriculum, getting them ready for the transition from primary to secondary school. We work on improving the children’s independence and teach them to work together as part of a team; our residential trip to Kingswood being a key part of this.
As it is the children’s final year of primary school, we try to provide them with fantastic opportunities to learn and have fun. Our exciting activities include: an artist-led watercolour workshop, a visit from Hands on History to experience life in Tudor times, a Tudor Museum, Evacuee Day and our 'famous' end of year production.
Topics we cover include:
The Tudors - including Henry VIII and his wives, Tudor portraits and a visit from Hands on History
Ghana - focusing on the village of Mankoadze, who we support through the Teabag charity
World War II - we look at the events of the Blitz and D-Day and experience life as an evacuee
