    Welcome

    ….Years to remember!

    Year 6 is one of the most exciting, dynamic years of a child’s education. The children are on the cusp of becoming young adults, developing their inquisitive minds ready to question and challenge the world around them.

    We aim to empower the children with the confidence to face the challenges and new situations that lie ahead-not just this year, but beyond Sound Primary.

    Year 6 really is an action packed time, with so many opportunities for the children to immerse themselves in-much more than just SATs! We believe that by the end of the year the pupils will have much to celebrate and reflect on, not just academically but personally too. Highlights of the year will include: cross-curricular learning experiences, opportunities to become invaluable school captains, trips, sporting and musical successes, leavers events, performances….not to mention the Onyx class trip to PGL!

     Onyx class aims to support and encourage our pupils to take pride in their time at primary school, leaving with happy memories, friendships and the confidence to achieve their potential in the next chapter of their lives.

    The pace in which the children are required to learn and the challenging objectives make Year 5, and particularly Year 6 a demanding year. In order for children to feel ready for life at secondary school, it is essential that they leave us with key skills in core areas.

    If we can picture a successful Year 5/6 learner, they have certain personal qualities that enable them to shine. Firstly, they have become self reflective learners. They know their own strengths and celebrate these with pride.

    They have recognised how they learn best and play to their strengths across the curriculum. Yet, these children also know their areas for personal development, ask for help when needed, and recognise ways in which they can support themselves to make progress.

    Essentially, the most successful children show self-resilience, understanding that we learn from our mistakes, and they are driven by self-motivation. These qualities coupled with a small dose of patience and persistence will enable them to tackle even the most difficult of challenges.

    Information on SATs is provided to parents and children once children are in Year 6 – a copy of the 2018/9 presentation can be found here:PPT-SATs-advice-parental-meeting-school.  Booster Clubs after school also take place in the spring and summer terms.
