Year 6 is a really important and exciting year for the children. They face lots of challenges which include the 11+, SATs and the prospect of leaving Priory and transferring to secondary school. However there are also lots of exciting events including the Year 6 residential trip, the Year 6 Production, the Leaver’s Assembly and the opportunity to organise the Summer Fair. We expect the children to act as role models as they are now the eldest in the school and some are invited to carry out roles of responsibility such as being Librarians, Prefects, and House Captains.
In 2017-18 the Year 6 teaching team includes Mrs Reith, Miss Young, Mr Philpott, Mr Williams, Mrs Kumari and Mrs Brecht. The teaching assistants that support Year 6 are: Mrs Romero, Ms Kingsbury, Mrs Oliver, Mr Plant, Miss Bevan, Mrs Larkins, Miss Perry and Mrs Davidson.
During Y6 the following topics are studied:
- Autumn 1 – Twisted Fairy Tales
- Autumn 2 – London
- Spring 1 – The Highwayman (poem) by Alfred Noyes
- Spring 2 – Evolution and Inheritance
- Summer 1 – The Maya
- Summer term – Enterprise Project
We welcome communication with parents. If you have any issues or queries you wish to raise with us, please, in the first instance, speak with your child’s class teacher. If they are not available, then please speak to Mrs Reith, Year Leader.
We will be using the homework diary as a communication tool with parents as well, so please ask your child to see it each week.
