The Year 6 experience is a pivotal one for any child – they are at the end of their primary schooling and about to embark on a new phase of their lives at secondary school.
Year 6 is the culmination of a child’s time at Savile Park and is therefore hugely important, both academically and emotionally. Our aim is to provide all children with a rich curriculum and a positive and happy final year. Our challenge is to ensure that they are ready to meet the demands of secondary school and move confidently onto the next stage of their learning journey.
The children in Year 6 are aware that they face statutory national assessments this year. We call them the ‘s’ word, as we do not want to make the whole year about these tests! However, the children know that this is a year where they need to work hard and that coping with assessments is a part of life.
Homework: Given out Wednesday and due back by the following Wednesday.
PE: Tuesday and Thursday
Reading: Children must read three times a week and get their reading diary signed.
