Class 6 (Year 6)
Welcome to Year Six
2019 - 2020
Miss Hancock, Miss Riley and I would like to welcome you to Year 6 at Wakefield Methodist (VC) Junior, Infant and Nursery School.
Our biggest aim within Year Six is to ensure that your child leaves here as an independent learner who is ready to take on all the amazing opportunities that high school has to offer. In order to do this, our biggest focus this year will be developing the children’s self-help skills so that they have the ability to not only look for answers but also raise questions to enhance their learning. We work extremely hard in Year 6, but have lots of fun along the way.
We have some great topics to look forward to this year including: ‘Meet the Greeks', 'It's a Kind of Magic', 'The Art of Being Human' and 'The Changing Faces of Wakefield'. However, there are times when we will follow the interests of the children and both the topics and timetable may vary.
Pupils in Year Six are actively encouraged to embrace the many leadership opportunities that arise across the year. So, as well as becoming leaders of both the School Council and Collective Worship group, pupils are actively involved in the running of many events including Pancake Racing, Egg Rolling and the refereeing of our many sports competitions.
In the Summer Term of Year 6 we have the opportunity to participate in our school residential experience at Robinwood, this is a fantastic residential and I can personally recommend it (It's the best residential I've ever been on!). Added to this, we have the Year Six Production and 'Night Out' to look forward to.
Be sure to check out both the Class Dojo and the school Twitter feed (@MrsEarnshaw1) as updates are posted on a regular basis.
I am really looking forward to a great year with your children; just like last year, if you have any concerns or worries please feel free to come in and see me or get in touch via the Class Dojo or email
