St Bernadette's Catholic Primary School

Growing together in faith, love & learning

Welcome to Year 6



Year 6 is an important year of challenges, surprises, growing up and preparing for the inevitable move to secondary school. The children will undertake vital roles throughout the school, giving them a status coupled with responsibility. As the oldest children at Saint Bernadette’s, we look to these pupils to set an excellent example for the rest of the school by providing positive role models of behaviour and learning. As always, the pupils have all been assigned their ‘buddies’ from Reception Class, helping them to settle and develop their social skills.


Mrs Whelan, Mrs Critchley and Mrs Ibbotson will assist me in providing the children with a broad, balanced curriculum and to prepare them for their future education. We encourage everyone to reflect, in greater depth, on themselves as learners and as considerate members of society. As secondary school is fast approaching, we encourage every member of year six to be self-reliant and self-sufficient, taking full responsibility for organising themselves and being punctual with homework.


Integral to our teaching is the development of pupils’ self-assessment and reflection so that they know how to move their learning forward. Year 6 children will sit the SATS tests in Maths, Reading, Spelling, Grammar and Punctuation in May. Throughout the preparation for their forthcoming tests, we encourage the children to judge themselves against their own previous performance and to celebrate the progress that they have made, rather than comparing themselves with others.


Above all, we aspire to provide a productive and enjoyable year for the children, enabling them to leave with a genuine sense of pride and achievement!
