Year 6 - Pleiades
Mr Thomas is the Year 6 Teacher in Pleiades Class and is further supported by his teaching assistants: Mrs Ross and Mrs Barfoot. This is the final year of primary school before the children move onto secondary education, therefore this is a year where we prepare them for life in secondary school as best we can. Children have already learned so much in their previous 6 years at primary school already and this is a year where we recap lots of previous learning, whilst learning lots of new things too. This year all children will have plenty of opportunities to work independently across many curriculum areas. Just like in previous years there is lots of opportunities to learn in a range of ways and children will be exposed to different sorts of activities. In May children will participate in end of Key Stage exams (better known as SATS) in order for secondary schools to have some insight into the academic ability of each child, regardless of which school they will be attending in September.
