Welcome to Year 6, the final year for children at Audley Primary.
This promises to be a very full, but fun year with lot’s going on, culminating in the children taking SATS tests in May 2017. The time seems to go by very quickly, so making sure that every lesson counts is so important!
By being in school every day and being on time does make a huge difference, especially as the SATS tests draw nearer!
There is a lot going on for Year 6, including the experience of being an evacuee during our Britain at War topic, a visit to the WW2 National Memorial Arboretum, a look at how the Wild West was won and also the opportunity to take part in a residential stay in Ullswater, in the Lake District – where the pupils experience some truly breath-taking scenery and challenge themselves by climbing mountains, walking up waterfalls and canoeing across one of the largest lakes in the U.K.
In addition to this, the children in Year 6 will be making a huge step in moving up to their secondary schools – this comes around quickly, so preparing the children and giving them the skills and confidence to go forward and be secondary school ready is a big part of our Summer Term.
Of course, if there is anything that we can help you with during this transition, please come and speak to one of the Year 6 team.
Towards the end of the year the children will have the opportunity to take part in our End-Of-Year Production which is a real celebration of the work and lives of the children during their time at Audley Primary School. These productions are always very popular, so please do take the time to join us in this celebration!
Finally, during the year, do look out for one of our many workshops, which offer you great opportunities to support us in supporting your child to achieve their fullest potential in Year 6 at Audley.
Many thanks, Team Year 6
