What do we hope children can do as learners before Y6?

  • Organise themselves and ensure that deadlines are met

  • Take responsibility for their own learning

  • Show independence e.g. speaking to the teacher directly if they have queries or concerns

  • Show resilience in a range of challenging situations

  • Be a role model for younger pupils

  • Actively participate in all lessons


What will Year 6 be learning this year?

Our work will be centred round a topic for two school terms at a time. Where possible, many of our National Curriculum subjects will be linked with this topic to enable the children to make links across the curriculum and provide a context for their learning.


Our focus topics will be as follows; Term 1 & 2 – Cheltenham Spa Term 3 & 4 – Extreme Survival Term 5 & 6 – The Maya. Some homework is research based and you may find the internet or our local town library helpful for this homework. There, you can borrow books and use the internet for free.

We will be taking part in school trips which reflect the learning outcomes for each topic and so we have already planned to visit The Wilson and go on a walk around Cheltenham in Terms 1 and 2.

We will also be visiting Waitrose during the year for our usual food technology workshop.


Which days will Year 6 have PE?

PE kits should be in school every day. Throughout the Autumn terms Year 6 will have PE coaching on a Thursday with each class taking alternate turns. Both classes will have PE on a Monday and there are additional PE sessions scheduled for Chedworth Class on a Friday and Gretton Class on a Tuesday for the weeks when they are not having PE coaching sessions.


Will my child be going on any trips this year?

There are lots of exciting trips and activities to look forward to and enjoy in Year 6. These include:

Literature Festival
Science Festival
The Wilson - Cheltenham Workshop
Cheltenham Council Chambers
Activity Week trips
Year 6 Leavers Mass
