Class Six

Year 6 is very much about growing in independence, stepping up as a role model for the school, polishing all the skills we have been taught thus far and ensuring we finish Primary School on a high -taking a toolkit with us to High School that will help us succeed.

Our vision is to encourage learning, inspire curiosity and help grow the future.
We are quite a philosophical class, thinking critically and creatively, considering some huge questions about life, be it evolution and inheritance to ‘Why do some people believe in God?’

Learning to understand our role and place in this world is of huge importance. In Year 6 we read some ‘unputdownable’ novels and write our own ‘page-turner-pieces’ that form our writer’s portfolio. Stories, poems, recounts, explanations, persuasions to name just a few.
Number plays a significant part and we move through place value, fractions, statistics, percentages and algebra. Measuring skills are also of huge importance as we bake and decorate our specialist Easter Cakes.

In Year 6, we remember the fallen of World War 1 and 2 and spend time researching significant historical events and linking this to our Geography, focusing on map skills and the local soldiers of Marple. Diaries, battle scenes, dance motifs and code-breaking all bring this topic to life.

Year 6 pupils also have the privilege of being buddies to the new EYFS intake, a role of real responsibility. ‘All Schools should be art schools’ and in Year 6 we study a range of exciting artists and create some visionary and bespoke pieces of our own.

Science is big – the pursuit of knowledge and understanding within our world- with topics such as light, classification and electrics keeping us inquiring and investigating. 

In May each year, we have our statutory assessments (SATs) and though we revise and work hard for these we do not forget to cook, paint, mould, shape, create and compose. Specialist lessons, such as keyboards and swimming, give us proficient skills and we end the year with a special, all-singing, all-dancing, always-standing ovation of a Shakespearian production!

For families of children already in our school please remember to view Tapestry for our weekly shout outs and much more.
