Welcome to our Year 6 Page
Although Year 6 is a challenging year with the Standard Assessments Tests (SATS) in May and all of the preparation in readiness for secondary school, it is also a year packed full of interest.
During the year, the children learn all about the Elizabethan, Victorian and Mayan eras. These areas of study are often explored in creative ways through drama, art and technology.
The children are given opportunities to show their commitment to the school by representing Friars through sport, music and other mediums. Individual abilities are recognised through earning the chance to hold a position of trust within the school, for example, being a librarian or a member of the Wellbeing Forum.
Towards the end of the year, the children will be able to participate in our residential trip to Ilam Hall in the Peak District or, if they prefer, they can take part in our local activity week. Usually we head to the Isle of Wight, but for 2022 we have planned this new experience! The children will enjoy activities that are not normally accessible during the school day, encouraging teamwork, co-operation and friendship and developing skills such as resilience, perseverance and self-confidence.
The year culminates with the annual leaver’s assembly in which all children are able to participate to celebrate their time at Friars and to look forward to moving on to their new schools.
