Year 6


Mr Lewis Webb Class Teacher Year 6

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 Into the Woods: Robin’s Recruits
