Year 6Mrs R. Walton – Year 6 Teacher and Deputy Headteacher
Welcome to Year 6
Welcome to the Year Six homepage! On this page you can find out what we are learning and see photos of events, trips and activities. If you would like more in-depth details of our subject coverage, please view our Curriculum section or pop in for a chat.
Year 6 has two main aims – to prepare children for the transition to secondary school so that they are confident and eager to begin, and to support the children through their SATs tests in a way that reduces anxiety to a minimum and helps them to be ready to show off their fantastic skills.
In Year 6 the teaching and learning style becomes more like KS3 – we don’t sit on the carpet, we have high expectations of independence, and greater emphasis is on the children to contribute to their own learning. Of course, they are still given as much support as they need. The teaching assistants who work in Year 6 are Mrs Saint, Mrs Stapleton and Miss English.
Year 6 also includes our residential visit to Robinwood – one of the highlights of the year!
It is a point of pride for us that children leave Parochial absolutely ready for the KS3 curriculum and the challenges that transition has to offer. However, we do love that they like to come back and visit!
If you have any questions or would like to chat about a worry, feel free to catch me any time or ring for an appointment.
