Year 6

In Year 6, we work together to prepare for the Sacrament of Confirmation. This is a very special time as it encourages children to reflect on our faith and think about what it means to be a follower of Christ.

Daily prayers, hymn practices and participation at Mass enable children to learn and grow in faith. We each choose a saint who inspires us and who we can follow as an example of how to live a life of dedication. Our faith permeates all that we do in school and we live as witnesses of our faith at all times.

Each day we have Literacy and Mathematics lessons and we learn skills which develop our knowledge and understanding. During the mornings we also have PE and Computing lessons. In the afternoons, throughout the year, we study History, Geography, RE, Art, Design Technology and Science – it's a very busy time!

We visit St. Chad's Cathedral and enjoy a three day residential visit to Alton Castle, the Diocesan Youth Retreat Centre. Some of us also undertake Level 1 and 2 cycling proficiency to keep us safe on the road.

This is a vitally important year for us as we grow and become more independent. We have lots of jobs and responsibilities to help with the smooth running of the school. Our teachers have very high expectations of us and we know that we have to set a good example to the younger children.

In Year 6 we take preparations for secondary school very seriously, this starts with completing our homework on time. Homework is given twice a week. In the Spring term, we will bring home practice papers in preparation for our national SATs.

Our time at St Jude's Catholic Primary School is celebrated at the end of the year with a Leavers' Assembly, a Leavers' Mass and a party. These provide us with fond memories which we take with us to our new school.
