Year 6

Welcome to Sutherland, Churchill and Wilne class!


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


Over the next 6 weeks, we have a full and exciting timetable planned and will be beginning lots of new topics, which we're looking forward to sharing with year 6. 


Key concepts such as Social Responsibility, Justice, Gender Equality, Democracy, Environmental Care, Wealth Distribution and Cultural Experiences are built into everything we learn. 


In Year 6, our children hone their critical thinking skills through topic work including the following outstanding literature; 




Year 6 Weekly Timetable




10:40 – 10:55

11:00 – 12:30

12:30 – 1:20

1:25- 3:10


























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.

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.


Previous performances have been:

  • The Tempest 2013
  • Twelfth Night 2014
  • A Midsummer Nights Dream 2015
  • Romeo and Juliet 2016

Spark Arts Festival


We are delighted to be welcoming 'The Spark Arts Festival' for their performance of 'My Friend Selma'. My Friend Selma is the remarkable real-life story of one girl’s journey from war in Bosnia to safety in the UK. It is the tale of an incredible journey, a world turned upside down, loss, friendship, courage and conkers.


The touring theatre company allows the children to ask all members of their team questions to get an insight into the performance, which the children may be able take and apply into their own performance at the end of the year.

Passport Points

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.


PE is every Friday afternoon and children should bring their PE kit in a bag with their name clearly labelled. Earrings and other jewellery should not be worn on that day.


Year 6 classes are also able continue progress made in their swimming lessons from the previous year. The classes rotate on a termly basis, and your child will bring home a letter with more information when it is their class's turn.

A celebrity in our midst! Year 6 meeting with Steven Mulhern!
