Year 6

Welcome to Year 6

This is the final year before moving onto secondary school.  A chance to make the most of your learning and show what you have achieved.  the year all children think of as their SATs year.  Important, hard work, challenging!  Role models for the school!  That aside – what else does year 6 offer?

The year starts with a topic which looks at the battle for the English throne in 1066 and the study of how castles shaped England.  Later children learn about the local history of thieves and rogues and also study the local area and find out about Dorset and its agricultural links. They will enjoy finding out about Ancient Egypt and also discovering the similarities and difference between two great cities – London and Paris. They finish the year with a book study.

There are opportunities to take on extra responsibilities; being librarians, running the school shop and lots of sporting competitions and festivals.

The highlight of the year is the residential trip to London.  Four packed days of visiting historic places, going to the theatre and eating in restaurants.   Everyone comes home happy and exhausted!

We believe that it is important to work hard, but just as equally important to have fun and Mr Topham, Miss Lusty, Mrs Teversham and Mrs Tilsed are there to ensure the children make the best progress they can throughout the year.
