Year 6 is an exciting year at St. Mary's School. There are many exciting opportunities to look forward to including forest schools, Lifeskills, camp, the water fight, Oscars night and the end of year production. Throughout the year, we are supported and challenged by Mr Pike, our teacher, and Mrs Massey, our TA, to ensure we do our very best and are ready for secondary school.
Being in Year 6 means that we have many additional responsibilities, one of them being a buddy to Foundation Stage pupils. We also are given extra jobs such as collecting House points, recycling, lunch duty, Year 6 worship and being a school councillor (if we are elected).
Each year we have the opportunity to go to Forest Schools. We all really enjoy the experiences especially working as a team to: problem solve, build & light fires, read maps and conquer the 'Bog of Doom!'
