Stronger together, with God, to be the best we're meant to be


Year 6

Welcome to Year 6!


Hello and welcome to our Year 6 page. The Year 6 team is made up of Mrs Lane, Mrs Finlason, Mrs Pomfret and Mrs Woodward. In Year 6, we learn about exciting topics through the 'Learning Challenge' curriculum. This half term our learning challenge is: 'Why was Islamic Civilisation known as the Golden Age?'. Please find below our learning challenge newsletter for this half term, along with some informative videos to give you a snippet of some of the things we will be learning about. 


Pop back onto our page in the next few weeks and we will be able to share facts about our topic and pictures of us working hard to be the best we can be. 


If you have any questions or any recommendations of what you'd like to see more of, on our page, we would love to hear from you.
