Welcome to Year 6!
Find out what your child will be learning this academic year.
The staff in Year 6 are Mrs Stone, Mr Temple, Mrs Lyons, Miss Wilkinson and Mrs Deasey. We are all committed to providing exciting and fun learning experiences for the children.
Year 6 is an important but very exciting time for the children at Willow Tree. We plan a variety of learning experiences delivered by experienced staff and these are designed to prepare the children for SATs and High School and at the same time give our children access to a broad, balanced and creative curriculum.
Just like in High School children will be expected to go to different adults for Maths, Reading and Writing. Project sessions are taught as a whole year group with Mr Temple and Mrs Stone. To enable pupils to achieve their best we ensure children are fully prepared for their SATs tests and the rigors of High School. Your child may have extra interventions in order to prepare them for SAT’s tests and High School.
To support us in achieving this we expect pupils to complete weekly home learning tasks, which will be sent out on a Wednesday. This will consist of Maths, English and Grammar. For those children who struggle to complete their home learning at home we provide a Homework Club which is run by our Deputy Head, Mrs Lyons and there are always opportunities during playtimes to complete work. Remember you and your child can always ask for support.
Throughout the year we provide children with fantastic first hand experiences to support their learning in projects, this includes a residential to Lledr Hall. We celebrate the end of Year 6 with a range of exciting trips and experiences, in the past these have included trips to Blackpool Pleasure Beach, The Water Sports Centre, the Lowry Theatre and the Cinema.
Developing Individual Responsibility
During Year 6, the children have the opportunity to develop their social skills and responsibilities by voting and becoming a House Captain, Vice-Captain or School Council representative. These roles include supporting the Head Teacher in celebration assemblies, speaking to important visitors, running Class and School Council meetings and organising house and fundraising events.
The final accomplishment to round off their Primary School life will be to put on a theatrical production for parents, governors, teachers and their peers of Willow Tree.
Our aim is to make your child’s final year at Willow Tree, a productive and enjoyable experience.
