Welcome to Year 6

Our year group philosophy

Year 6 is an extremely important year for our pupils where they develop essential life skills such as independence and responsibility. It is the transitional year from Primary to Secondary school and their very last year with us at Broadheath Primary School. Our children’s learning is enriched through our carefully planned ‘Enrichment Programme’ where we offer further learning opportunities to enhance the learning within the classroom. This could be in the form of visitors to school, going on a trip, residential or suggesting purposeful home learning activities. We encourage all pupils to take an active role in reflecting on what they have achieved and setting new targets as part of our ‘Believe-Practise-Succeed’ motto.

Our curriculum

In Year 6 we have a rich and varied creative curriculum, our pupils enjoy a wide range of practical and engaging activities to support our creative curriculum within topics such as:  War Over Time, Survival of the Fittest and Who’s Afraid of the Dark.  Please see our termly newsletter for further details.

Year 6 provides our pupils with many opportunities for personal growth in preparation for the next steps in their school life. We are very lucky to be well resourced with Chrome Books in every year group; year 6 use these to enhance the curriculum by complete independent research preparing them for the future.

We are mindful of supporting all pupils, including children with SEND. This is a continued focus for everyone throughout the school. Our pastoral provision is in place for all children to ensure both the physical and emotional welfare of everyone.

Wider Opportunities

Here is a snapshot of some of the wider opportunities on offer to our Year 6 pupils:

Crucial Crew, ENGAGE, Sporting events, Financial Literacy, STEM project, Pupil Ambassador roles, Bikeability, Marketplaces, Poetry By Heart, extra-curricular activities, Writing for Pleasure club and SATs booster clubs.

Key Stage 2 SATs

No guide to Year 6 would be complete without some mention of the SATs – the assessment tasks that all Year 6 pupils sit in May of each year. The results of these will determine whether your child has met the ‘expected’ level in English and maths.


In Year 6, pupils have the opportunity to go on a very exciting residential trip to Winmarleigh Hall, located in the heart of Lancashire countryside. Here, pupils discover the joy of learning through adventure.

End Of Year Production

For budding thespians, dancers and singers, prop designers and live musicians, the end of year production offers a range of dramatic and musical opportunities not to be missed. We expect all pupils to be involved in this highlight of the school year.



Building wonderful classroom communities with parents, carers and pupils.
