Introduction to Year 6
Welcome to Year 6 - the best class at St Mary’s because we are ‘top of the school’.
After what seems like forever we are the oldest children at St Mary’s and as a result we have a range of responsibilities. They include being House Captains and monitors. Every day we ensure that all the classes receive their fruit, milk and registers. During ‘Open Morning’ we show perspective parents around and also lead special events like the St. Richard’s Coffee Morning.
In addition we have to work really hard. At the end of Year 6 we sit tests and our teachers Mrs. Middleditch and Mrs. Robinson really make sure we are prepared fully for them. We also study a range of topics that include The Mayans, Walls and Barricades and Coasts. Each one is really interesting and provides different skills as we prepare to move to High School.
Even though we work hard we also have lots of fun. To support the curriculum we go on visits, which can include museums, parks and libraries. We end the year with a fantastic residential trip to the Isle of Wight.
In the summer term we also lead the school show, which is great fun and a fantastic production. Mrs. Middleditch is always on the watch to see who her next star is going to be.
We hope you have enjoyed reading about Year 6. If you want to know more just have a look at our gallery. There are lots of examples of all the fun we have as we learn.
