Welcome to Year 6!

Welcome to Year 6!  We hope you have had a very pleasant and restful summer holiday and are now ready and raring to go with the new school year! We are looking forward to welcoming a new cohort into the realms of independence and responsibility that come with being in Year 6.  As well as beginning our first History and Science projects (World War 2 and Animals), we will be getting the ball rolling with English and Maths, as we have a busy year ahead in order to prepare the children for the transition into secondary school.  We will also have plenty of exciting opportunities to look forward to such as our trip to the Royal Albert Hall and the selection of new prefects! 

 

We are excited to get to know both children and parents alike- if you have any questions/queries, please feel free to ask!  Please also see the "Meet the Teacher" Power Point for more information.
