Welcome to Year 6
Year 6 at Christ Church and Holy Trinity Schools is a serious, hardworking, yet fun year!
We invest heavily in this year group with our time and focus ensuring that the children have a wide and fulfilling curriculum.
Through the Lead Learners programme, we encourage the children to be part of a cohesive community where we cherish and reward empathy, politeness and leadership. The children are Shepherds for their Reception Class Sheep. They design and make slippers for their sheep and support the younger children on many occasions during the year.
Highlights of the year are drama with an immersive World War piece and a Shakespeare performance. We take the children out often and ensure that they learn creatively using the local area where possible. The children from both schools go on a residential trip but these trips will be different for this transitional year in the Federation.
This is the year that the classes do their Key Stage 2 SATS tests and 11+ entrance exams. The children work hard as well as play hard!
We plan carefully to prepare the children for their transition to secondary school.
During this transitional year, we ask the parents to be very supportive of their children’s needs- both academically and emotionally. We are very proud of our Christ Church and Holy Trinity children when they leave us as we know that they will be giving so much back to their new community.
