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 Production, the Leaver’s Assembly, the Year 6 residential trip and the opportunity to undertake the Bronze Arts Award. 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 Ambassadors, Librarians, Prefects, and House Captains.
In 2016-17 the Year 6 teaching team includes Mr Bond, Mrs Young, Mr Rowley and Mrs Roberts. The year group also enjoys the added support in the teaching of Maths of Mrs Jefcut. The Year 6 teaching assistants are: Mrs Romero, Ms Kingsbury, Mrs Carrod and Mrs Middleton.
During Y6 the following topics are studied:
- Autumn 1 – Twisted Fairy Tales
- Autumn 2 – The Highwayman (poem) by Alfred Noyes
- Spring 1 – London
- Spring 2 – Explorers and the Americas
- Summer term –Whole school 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 Mr Bond, 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.
