Year 6

Welcome to Year 6! Miss Patmore and Miss Riddell are the Y6 class teachers and Miss Gosling is our Y6 teaching assistant. We work together to ensure our children are thoroughly prepared throughout their time in Year 6 prior to their transfer to secondary school.

Learning For Life

Children have already taken part in a residential trip to Caythorpe Court PGL Centre.  As well as trying out a range of different activities, they were able to demonstrate their life skills and  their resilience.  Children will also be taking part in financial education sessions and they will also be beginning to think about setting up their own business.
