In Year 6 at St-Matthews the focus is on helping children to develop a more independent approach to learning whilst securing core skills in literacy and numeracy. They will be encouraged to use a wide range of different primary and secondary sources of information to develop their understanding across the curriculum and will be given frequent opportunities to develop areas of particular interest or ability. This more responsible and independent approach will prepare children for transition to secondary school and the next important stage of their education.

Year 6 children have high expectations of work and behaviour and take on key positions of responsibility in the School including taking on the role of ‘team captain’; supporting infant children in the role of ‘playground supporter’ and leading democratic meetings as ‘school council leaders’. Another key part of the year in Year 6 is the week-long residential trip to London which offers children a unique opportunity to experience the sights, sounds and amazing attractions that the capital has to offer.

They had a “Dragon’s Den” experience with a real-life bank manager where they had to pitch their products and business plan to see if they were approved a loan. Although some groups had a rocky start with this, they…
