Billingshurst Primary School

Learning, growing and achieving excellence together.

Year 6

Welcome to the Year 6 team - Mr Hampson (Year Leader) in China class, Mrs Hatrick in Russia class and Miss Mack in Japan class.  We are supported by Mrs Clyne and Mrs Bradley.

Year 6 is a very important year in Key Stage 2 as it is a time of transition between primary and secondary education.  We intend to make the children's final year in primary school a successful and memorable one, for all the right reasons, as well as ensuring that they are prepared for the move to their next school.  We have very good links with The Weald and have activities planned throughout the year that will help the children to become more familiar with the teaching staff and expectations of the school.

During the Autumn Term, 'Tomorrows World' is the topic driving the curriculum.  This humanities based unit based on Rivers and Mountains and Animals and Humans, will form the basis of our learning and we encourage the children to influence what we learn by posing their own questions at the beginning of the term.  Later in the term we will move onto our 'War and Peace' project looking at World War Two.  This promises to be a highlight of our year!

Perhaps the most exciting part of our year is our week long trip to Blackland Farm, near East Grinstead, in June.  We camp for the week in a safe and beautiful part of Sussex, taking part in outward bound activities such as canoeing, abseiling, rock-scrambling and zip-wire, as well as a number of team building activities and camp fires.  It will be a wonderful week, which really builds the children's confidence and gives them a chance to develop further social skills away from home.  We are also very much looking forward to putting on a Year 6 production at the end of the Summer term.

The Year 6 team are very excited for the year ahead and look forward to working with you and the children to make the year a memorable on.
