Year 6 is an exciting, motivating and important year for all pupils as we spend our final year in school. Mrs Fullerton, the class teacher, Mrs O'Loughlin, who covers Mrs Fullerton’s release time, and Mrs Ryder, the teaching assistant, all work very hard to make sure that we reach our full potential and achieve great things.
Every morning we have reading, English and maths lessons. We learn lots of skills which will develop our knowledge and understanding. In the afternoons we study a variety of subjects, linked to a topic or theme.
This is a vitally important year for us as we grow and become more independent. We have lots of jobs and responsibilities to help with the smooth running of the school. Our teachers have very high expectations of us and we know that we have to set a good example to the rest of the school.
In Year 6 we take preparations for secondary school very seriously. This starts with completing our homework on time. We have regular spellings, maths, reading and specific tasks linked to topic work. In the Spring term, we will often bring home practice papers in preparation for our SATs. (Standard Attainment Tests). We are tested in Reading Comprehension, Mathematics and Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar.
In Year 6, we have the opportunity to take part in a residential trip. This year we will be visiting PGL Liddington. This is a fantastic opportunity to acquire new skills and participate in outdoor learning opportunities.
Our time at St Mary's Catholic Primary School is celebrated at the end of the year with a Leavers’ Showcase and a Leavers’ Mass – at Clifton Cathedral and at Our Lady’s. These provide us with fond memories which we take with us to our new school. No matter where we end up in life, we always remember the experiences, community and the life we led at our primary school.
Our PE sessions are on Wednesdays and Thursdays.
Homework- we have spellings on a Monday, maths on a Friday, reading at leat three times a week and special termly topic projects,
