Year 6 Curriculum
Our experienced and highly dedicated teachers and assistants in Year 6 pride themselves on their creative approach to teaching. We continue to build upon children’s prior knowledge in Lower KS2 and strive to embed a love of learning that encourages all children to be self-motivated, inquisitive and happy learners. We recognise that every child is special and unique. Working closely together, teachers plan and deliver creative lesson that cater for pupils of all abilities and dispositions. We have a dedicated team of support workers who help pupils where needed.
We strive to create a stimulating classroom environment, which is steeped in mutual respect. The children are immersed in a plethora of curriculum workshops and activities in science, PE and history. We encourage creativity in every area of the curriculum and endeavour to foster a love of the Arts through drama, dance, literature and music.
We also ensure that children have the skills they need to be a successful member of our modern British society. We ensure they have an understanding of different beliefs and cultures and learn acceptance, tolerance and respect towards others.
Year 6 is a pivotal phase in school life and part of the teacher’s role is to prepare children for secondary school. Moreover, the pupils are given the opportunity to think carefully about what they can offer the outside world as a British citizen and the crucial role they can play in later life. We have very high aspirations for all our pupils all the way through their school life and this culminates in Year 6.
Children have a wide range of opportunities to take part in business activities, performing arts and meet members of the community who we consider to be role models. Children have the opportunity to demonstrate the teamwork skills they have learnt throughout their time at Penpol during school camp and the highly challenging Year 6 production.
By the end of Year 6 we want our pupils to:
- Be successful, confident, self-motivated and dedicated learners
- Recognise their strengths and weaknesses and take decisive action to improve their work
- Intrinsically motivated to work at home
- Show the highest level of courtesy and respect to all members of our school community and beyond
- Pro-actively contribute to the well being of their school, community and world around them
