A note from the teachers
At Roseberry Primary School there are two Year 6 classes: Mr Armstrong is the teacher of class 6R and Miss Walker is the teacher of class 6P. In addition to this, we have support from Mrs Hollinshead, and our two wonderful teaching assistants, Miss Logan and Mrs Fox to ensure that learning is tailored to meet the needs of every child (Article 3). We all work together to ensure that every child achieves their full potential and can be the best that they can be (Article 29).
The teachers in Year 6 know that creativity and enrichment is an important part of the curriculum therefore they make sure that English and Maths lessons are enjoyable and that children always have the opportunity to make progress and challenge themselves and develop their talents (Article 29). Children are kept informed about their progress and we have ongoing pupil progress meetings to talk about the next steps in their learning so that they know what to do to move on.
What is it like for a child in Year 6?
In Year 6, we learn about a lot of interesting and important things that will help us in the future and prepare us for the next stage in our lives: Secondary School. To enhance our learning, we go on school trips to see where our learning fits into the real life setting. For our first topic ‘Who has the power?’ we visited ‘Crucial Crew’ where we learnt about lots of different ways to keep ourselves and others safe. We will also visit a Mexican restaurant to sample food related to our topic ‘Mexico VS Spain’. Before a topic starts, children are given the opportunity to contribute to their learning and tell us all about what they want to learn about because we respect the children’s right to have their say (Article 12)
Every morning, the children are timetabled to use ‘Reading Plus’ and this time helps to consolidate and enhance their learning (Article 28).
