St. Philip's Catholic Primary & Nursery School

"In the light of Christ, where everyone is valued and learning is celebrated"

Children  »  Year 6

WOW where has the time gone? If you are like us, you can’t believe that these children are beginning their final year in primary school. It is a very important year for the children - one in which they will have greater responsibility around the school, one full of memorable events and the one in which they will complete their SATs. The children will also be preparing for life after St Philip’s in their new secondary schools. Year 6 is a place where self- confidence, independence and self-worth is highly promoted and it is always wonderful to see them flourish throughout the year. Supporting the children through their journey in Year 6 will be Miss Stewart and Mrs Shea. There are lots to look forward to in Year 6. The residential to Robinwood, Eden Camp and the end of year production (to name a few). We want every child to reach their full potential and be happy at school and we’re sure if we work together we can make this happen!

Team Building

Year 6 have been developing their team building skills. They had the tricky task of keeping the ball off the ground while remembering which position they were supposed to be in. They had to work together, remain focused and keep their eye on the ball!

Christmas in the trenches

Year 6 has spent this week learning all about life in the trenches. Today they have learnt about The Christmas Truce and recreated the events using freeze frames and taking pictures to show the remarkable occurrence of that day.
