Year 6 – St Richard de Wyche
Year 6 is an important time in your child’s education and we aim to foster a lifetime love of learning and an opportunity to discover new talents which they will carry with them into their next adventure at secondary school!
Throughout the year, all children will get a chance to write and present their own manifestoes when they stand for House Captain and Vice-Captain, apply for prefect roles, sports buddy, greenies and clerks to name a few! Independent learning and taking more responsibility in a safe and supportive environment is on the agenda to equip them to face the challenges that they will meet.
In the summer term, children will also get the opportunity to flourish in our lovely Forest School for some all-important and well-deserved Forest bathing!!!
Autumn term – The Industrial Revolution and changes in Britain
Spring term – Natural Disasters

Important events throughout the year:
