Welcome to Year 6

Miss Philpotts and Mrs Pollitt would like to welcome you to Year 6's webpage. Here you will find out about all the things we are learning about in class and the exciting things we get up to in school. 

Please follow our class twitter page https://twitter.com/mrs_pollitt

Year 6 is jam-packed with hard work - particularly preparing you for your move to secondary school but it is our aim to make you learn and laugh at the same time. We know that children learn more when they are content and confident in school and as a result we teach in small focussed groups each morning helping children to learn in a non-threatening atmosphere.

As the year progresses you will hear SATs being mentioned more often; this is children's opportunity to show how much they have learned (and remembered) from their time in our school. We focus on progress and being the best you can be - children are special to us they are not simply data by which we are measured.

Key Information
