Welcome to Year 6The final year of learning at St. John'sThis is a year that will prove to be both exciting and challenging for the children. Having arrived at their last year in primary the children will be expected to take on a greater sense of responsibility both for their own learning and for the [...]
In Year 6 we aim for the children to develop an increased understanding of their role as citizens in the wider world by taking on such responsibilities as helping at the parish lunch, developing leadership skills by representing their house as ‘House Captain’ and for sports teams and designing and making a Christmas tree decoration to sell at the forthcoming fayre, as part of a business enterprise project.
Throughout the year, the children will have the opportunity to develop their skills, knowledge and understanding of various themed projects: these include Social Justice: Sustainable Cities and Communities (RE/PSHE); The Revolution (History); ID (Science); Gallery Rebels (Art and Design); Hola Mexico (Music) and Frozen Kingdoms (Geography). These imaginative learning projects will be supported through planned visits and workshops. In addition to this the children will be given the opportunity to take part in secondary transfer workshops, for example the Junior Citizenship programme run by the police.
The year culminates in the children being involved in the summer production, taking on the major parts and roles. It proves to be an enjoyable end to the year where ‘hidden’ talents really do shine through.
