Our Year 6 children are taught in Griffin Class.
Griffins or Gryphons are legendary creatures with the body, tail and back legs of a lion and the head, wings and talons of an eagle.
- "They come, Your Highness, in numbers and weapons far greater than our own."
- ― Unnamed Gryphon who reported the Witch's Army' approach from the film 'The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe'.
What we do in class:
In Griffin Class we cover all subjects within the National Curriculum. We extend and build on skills learnt in previous years as well as encouraging the development of learning skills such as resilience and reflection.
In maths we continue to develop and learn methods of calculation, problem solving, shape, space and measure and data handling. Our literacy is often cross-curricular and makes links with our topic work.
This term in our topic we will be looking closer to home as we study Britain and everything that makes it Great! From the John O'Groats to Landsend we will be exploring the country we call home.We will start by investigating the counties of England and developing our mapwork skills. Later in the term we will start a comparsion study with countries around the world.
What is Year 6 all about?
In Year 6 we prepare our children for their transition into secondary school. We do this by challenging them and pushing them out of their comfort zones so they are ready to handle the demands of secondary education. We promote and encourage initiative so that children become responsible for their own learning and progress. But, at the heart of everything we do is enjoyment within class - the children achieve the best outcomes when they enjoy what they do.
Alongside children's academic progress we promote the values of responsibility and care for others as they become young adults.
