The Year 6 team consists of three teachers – Miss Ryan, Mr Carter and Miss Watt – who are well-supported by Mrs Fowler, Mrs Ebb, Mrs Bird, Miss Dean and Miss Bowditch. The Year 6 team is directed by the deputy head teacher, 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 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.

Year 6 updates
Virtual Reality: The Circulatory System
Year 6 were very privileged this term as they were able to borrow a class set of VR headsets and use these to explore inside the human body – in particular, the circulatory system.
This was a fantastic and invaluable experience, and really helped them to know what goes on beneath our skin.
There was a great deal of sheer amazement as you can see in the photos!
Mini First Aid Training
Year 6 participated in a ‘Mini First Aid’ course as part of their Blood Heart project.
They learnt some basic life-saving skills while also making connections with their learning in science.
