What happens in Year 6 at Crondall Primary School?
In Year 6, we work hard to support our older students as they prepare to make the transition from primary school to secondary education. They gain independence and a sense of pride and responsibility as they volunteer to take on roles and jobs, which help to support the rest of the school, (E.g. School and House Captains, librarians and ‘buddies’.)
Social and emotional wellbeing is an important part of growing up, particularly within our Year 6 class as they prepare for the many changes and challenges that they face. During our annual residential to Osmington Bay, pupils are given the opportunity to develop confidence, resilience, perseverance and teamwork, tackling a range of adventurous and problem-solving activities.
In addition, an important part of learning within Year 6 includes preparation for SAT’s. We work hard to build the skills and knowledge which are necessary in order to help them to feel ready, not just for the tests, but as they move forward into secondary education.
Our topic this term is Frozen Worlds: The Great Serum Race

As part of our Stunning Start, the children discovered a melting ice block in class this morning with various clues hidden inside. We estimated how long the block would take to melt. Estimations varied from 1 hour to 1 day.
The children then investigated what materials would melt an ice cube the fastest: sugar, sand, hot water, cold water or salt.

12th June, 2019
It has been another busy week in Year 6, with many children beginning to visit and meet their teachers in preparation for the move to secondary school. Meanwhile, our learning continues and this week we have begun preparing for some narrative writing, based on the short film ‘The Oceanmaker’. We have found it to be particularly thought-provoking, as it shows a future world, where the ocean no longer exists and man struggles to survive.
We enjoyed working together to create spiralateral maths investigations on Mum’s morning…
We were very excited to have been invited to visit Year 2, so that we could spend some time with the ducklings.
” They liked nibbling at my finger…” “They felt just like teddy bears, they were so soft!”
“They were very fluffy and very cute.” “Amazing…” “We want ducklings!”
As part of our topic, we have been listening to the sounds under the ocean. We were fascinated to hear a podcast by Chris Watson and we also listened to the songs of whales. We are creating our own ocean music, which we hope to record later this week.
