Welcome to Year 6
We are pleased to welcome you into your final year of primary school. Your class teachers are Miss Desanj in Falcons and Mrs Dykes in Kestrels. We are lucky to have a dedicated and welcoming teaching support team (Mrs Kerry, Mrs Passman, Ms Lohan, Mrs Hodgkins and Miss Rehman) who offer both pastoral and academic support, to ensure that all of our children reach their full potential.
In Year 6, we have high expectations of all learners and celebrate positive learning behaviours through our ‘Are you ready?’ reward system. Underpinning this are our school ‘Be’ rules: ‘Be Respectful’, ‘Be Kind’, ‘Be safe’, ‘Be Inquisitive’. We encourage our Year 6 students to be ambassadors of these and pride themselves in being role models for their peers both in and out of the classroom.
Our timetable consists of a daily English, Maths and Reading session; as well as Science, Geography, History, P.E., Computing, R.E., Art and D&T. In addition to this, Year 6 access a weekly swimming lesson over the course of a term and a half each.
In Year 6, not only do we support you through your statutory SATs examinations, but we prepare you with the life skills and knowledge to help you progress into your next stage of learning. We know that leaving primary and transitioning into secondary can be daunting so we will support you through many activities and meetings including building relationships with local secondary schools, learning techniques for coping with changes and building self-confidence throughout the year.
We look forward to a fun-filled final year with you at Ingrow Primary School!
