Class 6

Welcome to Class 6!


Year 6 is an important year in any school but here, at The White House, Class 6 is very special.  The children develop and mature enormously during this final year, relishing their positions of responsibility and the chance to demonstrate what they have achieved during their time with us.  They become role models for younger children.  Their confidence grows as they enjoy the challenges that the year brings and look forward to transition to Secondary school.

During this year we will develop our love of reading, improve our communication through speaking & listening and writing, extend our mathematical knowledge and explore many new areas of study.

These include, among other things, Ancient Greece, plate tectonics & volcanoes, mapping skills (including 4 and 6 figure grid references), aspects of French life, aspects of Judaism and Christianity, app inventing, the science of light, electricity and a myriad of other engaging and lively topics.  Through both curricular and extra-curricular activities the children will extend their knowledge of Music and Drama and engage with a wide range of sporting and artistic activities.

The children will learn both about the world around them and about themselves and their place in it.  The Class 6 team is dynamic, caring, enthusiastic and strong! 

Classes 5 and 6 have raised a fabulous £245 for Comic Relief and organised some amazing activities for the whole school family to enjoy...
