Year 6 is a very exciting year with many changes just ahead. Of course, SATs happen in May, assessing reading, writing and maths and there is a lot of learning that helps children as they build up to them - but there is also much more in Year 6.
SASJ is a Catholic school and we strive to include our Catholic ethos in all we do. Our Year 6 children are fantastic in the way they participate in the GIFT team and lead children in prayer; they are very impressive in the way they share their faith.
We build on the Year 5 learning, giving opportunities for the children to develop their understanding of a variety of subjects – including history, geography, science, art, DT, computing and PE. Our newly developed curriculum gives the children the chance to learn about their topics in interesting ways – and giving us chance to make visits, such as our trip to Eureka where we learnt about space and how we might travel to Mars.
Children coming into Year 6 are nervous about the year but they are also nervous about what happens afterwards. At SASJ, we place great importance on helping the children transition to secondary school successfully. We build links with our local Catholic secondary school, Mount Carmel, throughout Year 5, and they build even more in Year 6. We communicate with the staff at the secondary schools to ensure that they know lots about the children before they even get there.
Every year, we celebrate the Year 6 ‘rites of passage’. They go on a residential trip, they perform in the end of year play and their leavers’ assembly and every year, without fail, they impress me with how much they have grown up. They are always prepared and eager to go off to high school and become SASJ ambassadors – and every year I am proud of who they have grown into.
Each week, I will put a Class Dojo award online to show those who have been working with real enthusiasm and trying their best.
