Welcome to Year 6, where the class teacher is Miss Cleeland, who is supported by Mrs Hollingsworth and Mrs Rogers. Learning in Year 6 is active, dramatic and imaginative, with an emphasis on self-development and preparation for moving on to Secondary School.
Our aim is to develop into the ‘great thinkers’ and ‘innovators’ of the future, through creativity, challenging conventions and deep thinking.
We understand that learning is a process which works best when you; collaborate with others, aren’t inhibited by failure and are willing to embrace a challenge, so there is lots of discussion, drama, film making, scientific experiments and the presenting of ideas. We cover lots of interesting topics, such as; Do you bite your Thumb? (based on Romeo and Juliet),My Secret Camera (based on life in the Lodz Ghetto), A World of Difference (examining global differences in Literacy and Life Expectancy).
Our learning is enhanced through trips to the theatre, art exhibitions, cinema and other exciting learning environments, where we gain inspiration and knowledge from experts in their field.
We do PE on Tuesdays and take part in the Prince William Award on Fridays, and use homework as a tool for consolidating what we learn in School. There is an emphasis on preparing for SATs and consolidating all areas of learning, in particular English and Maths.
Life in Year 6 certainly is exciting and rewarding; definitely a cool and interactive place to be! We value the Edgewick Learner and use it as a tool to enhance our learning behaviours.
