St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School

Year 6



Welcome to Year 6!

Year 6 is a culmination of all primary school learning which ends with the key stage statutory assessments (SATs).  The Gospel Values underpin the whole curriculum as we encourage pupils to reflect on their life choices as they live as ‘Children of the Light.’ Pupils’ learning focuses on recapping work previously covered as well as developing reading, writing and maths skills to Year 6 expected level and beyond.  Pupils are prepared for High School transition in a number of ways including: relationships with others; negotiating the internet and managing their emotions during times of change.

This year, Year 6 pupils will cover three distinct topics:

Battling Britain – exploring the events of World War 2 including being ‘evacuated’ to Holdenby House.

Collison Course - when we become a passenger on the doomed maiden voyage of the Titanic.

Marvellous Monarchs – where we celebrate the achievements and notoriety of Tudor Kings and Queens.

Following SATs:

Pupils will also have the opportunity to attend a residential trip or take part in an activity-based experience in school.  They will also be invited to participate in the End of Year 6 production and the fundraising afternoon.  We end the year celebrating with our Leavers Mass and Picnic.
