Welcome to Year 6, an exciting and important year for all pupils as we spend our final year together in primary school. As the oldest children in the school, we relish the opportunity to be excellent role models for the younger children who look up to us.
In Year 6 we take our faith very seriously. In addition to regular participation at Mass, together with other services at Church, we are given the opportunity to conduct and lead our own prayer services for our class. Our altar is the focal point of our classroom, dressed in accordance to the colours of the liturgical calendar.
We also work together to prepare for the Sacrament of Confirmation. This is a very special time for us as it encourages us to reflect on our faith and think about what it means to be an ambassador of Christ.
Our daily prayers, hymn practices and participation at Mass enable us to learn and grow in our faith. We each choose a saint who inspires us and who we can follow as an example on how to live a life of dedication. Our faith permeates all that we do in school and we live as witnesses of our faith at all times.
Every morning we have Literacy and Maths lessons as well as Guided Reading. In the afternoons we enjoy studying RE, Science, Geography, History, PE, Computing, French, Music, Art and RSE.
Furthermore, we hope to have the opportunity to take part in a residential trip at some point this year. This is a fantastic opportunity to acquire new skills and participate in outdoor learning opportunities. We will also try to visit the mosque and St. Chad’s Cathedral.
In Year 6, we take preparations for secondary school seriously, this starts with completing our homework on time. We are expected to complete Literacy and Maths homework each week, together with spellings. Spellings tests take place each week.
