Welcome to year 6 and your last year in primary school! This is a really important year as you are now the role models for the other children in our school. There is a lot of work to do, but a lot of fun to be had too. Not only will you go on our fabulous residential trip to Robin Wood, you’ll also prepare for and take your SAT tests. Throughout the year you will develop your learning powers as well as building your independence, resilience, organisational and communication skills so that you are fully ready to take the next big step to secondary school.
Year Six Staff:

As we near the time of our National Curriculum Tests it’s important to keep our skills sharp. Try out some of the websites and Apps in the list below.
What better way to start a new year than by looking back into the rich history and heritage of our local community. We visitied the Liverpool Maratime Museum to explore the hostory of the luxury liner The Lusitania and the impact of it’s sinking on the world. We also explored the Battle of the Atlantic and the importance of Liverpool’s docks during World War 2.
Year 6 performed their production of Macbeth at the Shakespeare School Festival with a 1920s twist on the classic story.
What the children thought…
Bethany – ‘I have grown in confidence. I thought that everyone did well and I would definitely do it again’
Sarra – ‘I enjoyed the rehearsals and the build up to the performance. It was one of the best nights of my life’
James – ‘What I enjoyed most was the roar from the crowd. I was most nervous when we did the first scene because I needed to keep a straight face’
Ava – ‘Through the practicing of Macbeth our class has a nicer bond with each other than before. I personally think we have achieved so much in a short amount of time’
Anthony – ‘I loved the performance, I thought everyone got a character they played well’
Charlie – ‘It was absolutely remarkable, I loved being part of the play’
Bella – ‘My performance of Macbeth was very special because I loved my costume. It was lovely to see my family watching me’
