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 …
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/Vice Captain’ and for a wide array of sports teams.
Throughout the year, the children will have the opportunity to develop their skills, knowledge and understanding of various themed projects: these include Maafa (History); Frozen Kingdoms (Geography) and ID. 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.
We spend lots of time preparing the children for their transition to secondary school, so they feel assured in doing so. 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.
