Year 6


The teachers in Year 6 are Mrs Hatrick (Year Leader), Mr Griffiths and Miss Mack.  They are supported by Mrs Middleton, Mrs Bradley, Mrs Pullen, Mrs Marr, Mrs Martin, Mrs Sloan, Mrs Agulla-Lorenzo and Mrs Lewsley. 

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 successful and memorable and to ensure that they take their love of learning with them on their journey through education. 

During the Autumn term, ‘What is a River?’ is the project driving our curriculum. This project is humanities based and throughout the term we will explore a river’s physical features and their importance in our livesWe will also use the metaphor of a river as journey to link art, music, dance and culture together.  

In the Spring term, ‘World War Two’ will be the focus of our learning. Using literature, drama and a variety of historical sources, we will explore the impact and legacy of WW2 on Britain and the wider world.   

During the summer term, our final project is based around a Shakespeare play (to be confirmed). This provides us with a wonderful opportunity to immerse the children in drama and our literary heritage, inspiring an appreciation of language and the performing arts.  

For many, a highlight of the year is our week-long trip to Blackland Farm in the summer term. We camp for the week in a 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 builds the children's confidence and independence.  

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