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.

Trips, events and visitors:
At Savile Park Primary we enrich the curriculum for our children by offering a range of educational visits and other activities that add to and complement what they learn in school. There are also a number of people who visit the school to support our work. Some visits relate directly to areas of learning for individual classes, whilst others relate to all our children.
An amazing residential to Robinwood at Todmorden. Our children made us so proud with fantastic teamwork, care for each other, respect and determination.
International Women’s Day at the Piece Hall – Suffragettes
Yorkshire Museum of Farming
Eagles class had a hands-on activity day. The children studied the life of a Viking villager in Saxon Britain. Arriving as new settlers, the children were given simple period costume and taken to their new homes on the dark-age settlement where they experience first-hand the daily life of a Viking family. On the village they learn new skills and all about the hard work and dangers that were part of daily life.
We visited Marsden to participate in field study activities, including mapping and river flow rate and depth tests, so that we can identify and recognise the physical features of a river at various stages on its journey.
