This is the final year for our children at St. Mary’s Church of England Primary School and it can be described like being on a roller coaster ride – full of ups and downs! There will be moments when the children will have lots of excitement (for example when we go on our residential trip to Sayers Croft) and there will be moments that are challenging (for example visiting secondary schools for interviews and exams). Nevertheless, all the staff in Year 6 work really hard to ensure that all of our children have the best opportunity possible to achieve their full potential. At the same time we also try our best to have fun along the way and provide all the children with some lovely lasting memories.
Our children in Year 6 are expected to take on more responsibility around the school. They need to demonstrate a mature attitude and independent approach to their learning. An important part of Year 6 is preparing for the Key Stage 2 national curriculum tests on which our school performance is judged, however, more special than this is the children’s preparation for school life in secondary school! The transition into secondary school and saying goodbye to primary school can be both exciting and sad, but all of our staff are supportive and happy to offer their advice and guidance.
