Medway Community

Primary School

Year 6

Welcome to  Churchill 6 and Melbourne 6

 

Throughout Year 6, the children will be learning about diversity and respect through our theme 'BUILDING A BETTER SOCIETY'.

 

 

Key concepts such as Social Responsibility, Justice, Gender Equality, Democracy, Environmental Care, Wealth Distribution and Cultural Experiences are built into everything we learn. These derive from our KS2 values: Belonging, Knowledge, Trust and Equality.

 

In Year 6, our children hone their critical thinking skills through foundation subject including the study of thought-provoking novels.

SATs

All Year 6 children working within National Curriculum requirements are legally obliged to participate in end of Key Stage 2 Statutory Assessment Tests (SATs) which identify the attainment of children in Reading, Writing and Mathematics for national comparison. During the coming months, further information and guidance regarding SATs will be issued to you. SATs are not something which either you or your child should be worried about – that is our job! Instead, they should be approached as an opportunity to showcase everything they have learned throughout their time in Key Stage 2.

Cultural Passports

It was lovely to see so many children had gained Year 5 badges and were wearing them on their jumpers coming up to Year 6. We are proud to say that even more children have gained their Year 6 Bronze badges and are now working towards Silver. Badges are earnt by following our School Aims and our Keys to Success.

The End of Year Play

 

One of the major highlights of the year at Medway Community Primary School is the end of year play. Our Year 6 children have the opportunity to study and perform a Shakespearian play; engaging in the language and developing a love of the literature whilst promoting the high oracy standards found throughout the school.
