Year 6


Welcome To Year 6

Welcome to Year 6, the final chapter of primary school. A year of exciting opportunities, rewarding experiences and challenge! This is your year to shine. From sports competitions to SATs; cinema trips to Carol Concerts; school councillors and sports leaders; assemblies and masses to the final production, there is something for everyone in    Year 6. 

As well as reaching our potential academically, there will be plenty of opportunities to participate in key roles and responsibilities within the school that will equip you for your transition to secondary school. 

In Year 6 you will be expected to work hard but in return, you will be rewarded with many happy memories, lasting friendships, and an increased confidence to take you onto your next adventure.

What Are Year 6 Learning? 

On World Book Day year six designed, created and evaluated their very own parks after reading ‘The Accidental Prime Minister’. In the book, Joe becomes Prime Minister in order to save his local park.

In art lessons this term we have studied sculpture, including the works of Henry Moore. We used his examples and sculpted our own abstract creations in soap.

All the year sixes are members of the Avilas group. Named after St Teresa of Avila, their mission is to live out their faith throughout the school. This half term they have taken classes around the Stations of the Cross.

This term we have been invited to take part in a number of sports competitions and festivals, including athletics and handball at local secondary school, Debden Park.

Year sixes have a special bond with year two. We read with them weekly. During World Book Day, we also popped into year one to share our books.



In DT lessons, year 6 have been understanding of factors of food and food groups. We learnt about seasonal foods, processed foods and used the British Heart Foundation website in order to help us research healthy choices through informed decisions. The children designed and made their own three course meal. They can now continue to build healthy relationships with food and maintain positive habits as they grow older!


PE will be on Monday and Fridays for Year 6.

Reminder: school PE Kit to be worn for all PE lessons; this includes black plimsolls/black or white trainers, black or navy shorts and a white t-shirt. Jewellery/watches are not to be worn on P.E days and long hair must be tied back. Please note, any children who are unable to take their earrings out will not be physically involved in these sessions. They will ‘take part’ by observing and assisting the class teacher.
