Enjoy Achieving Together

Year 6


Welcome to Year 6


This is the final year before moving onto secondary school.  A chance to make the most of your learning and show what you have achieved.  Year 6 is the year all children think of as their SATs year.  They are role models for the school!  Yes, Year 6 is important, hard work, challenging!  That aside – what else does year 6 offer?


The year starts with a topic which looks at World War II.  Later children learn about the legacy of Ancient Greece and also about the Mayan Civilisation. They will enjoy finding out about natural disasters, migration and exploring land uses in Bristol.


There are opportunities to take on extra responsibilities; being lunch helpers, being librarians or Sports Ambassadors as well as lots of sporting competitions and festivals.


The highlight of the year is the residential trip to PGL - three packed days of team building activities.  Everyone comes home happy and exhausted!


We believe that it is important to work hard, but just as important to have fun.  Mrs Mee, Mrs Eaton, Miss Maguire & Mrs Woolrich are there to ensure the children make the best progress they can throughout the year.
