Welcome to Year 6

Year 6 - Mr Hickey

At Winshill Village Primary and Nursery School we have high standards for all our children, our 27 Year 6 children play a key role in setting those high standards and modelling good behaviour.   Year 6 is full of responsible and caring young people who take on additional responsibilities within school, including; house captains and assembly monitors.   They help to implement the school behaviour policy by analysing which classes have been “Good to be Green” all week and organising prizes. 

We aim to prepare our children for secondary school, and so throughout their time in Year 6, the children are given more responsibilities, and are given more opportunities to be independent. Our children are an asset to the school. 

Year 6 is a busy year in any primary school, and here at Winshill Village Primary and Nursery School we are no exception. The children take leading roles in school productions, organise their leaver’s trip and party and of course, prepare for their SATs in May.

In Maths, we follow our Calculation Policy, this ensures that our children are able to complete long multiplication and long division calculations to a very high standard. This is more important than ever this year as for the first time Year 6 will be taking an arithmetic test as part of their SATs.

We have high expectations of our children, and Year 6 willtake part in booster lessons to help them achieve their full potential. With their hard work and determination, we are sure that this Year 6 class will succeed.
