Year 6

The Year 6 team consists of three teachers – Miss Ryan, Mr Woodcock and Miss Watt – who are well-supported by Mrs Fowler, Mrs Clarke, Mrs Davidson, Mrs Pink-Hatt and Miss Bowditch. Mrs Twell also regularly supports teaching in Year 6. The Year 6 team is directed by the Upper Hub assistant headteacher, Mrs Gibbs.

When moving into Year 6, the children are entering their last year in South End Junior’s ‘Upper Hub’ and are expected to be the ultimate role models for the rest of the school. It is our aim to equip the children with tools to further develop their independence as learners as well as prepare them for their transition to secondary school. As a year team, we endeavour to do this by providing exciting learning opportunities and having high expectations of the children in terms of behaviour, attitudes and learning. Our experience strongly suggests that pupils who are hardworking, determined and positive are always successful. This means we will be push each and every one of our children to be the best version of themselves, but in return, each and every member of the team will work above and beyond to help them succeed.

Our updated Year 6 long-term curriculum overview will follow shortly…

Blood heart was really good. I enjoyed dissecting a heart and seeing all the bits inside. I was a bit worried, but it was fine.
