Teacher – Mrs Smith
Life in year 6 is never dull! As well as working very hard on our learning across a range of subjects, we take on leadership roles in the school. We hand out registers every day, man the office at lunch time, help as play leaders at break time and lead the school council.
Year 6 is an important year as we aim to prepare children for the transition to secondary schools, and we aim to combine knowledge based learning with citizenship skills such as taking responsibility, working in teams and being self motivated learners. A very popular part of our curriculum is when we work with our buddies in the Reception class, helping with their learning and setting a good example. We also take part in personal challenges when we have to take a subject area and work on it independently, then present our learning to an audience.
In Woodpeckers although we work hard, we do take time out for trips, school camp and the end of year production, aiming to make the final year in Junior school memorable!
