Year 6

Year 6 is an exciting but challenging year as we prepare the children for their transition to secondary school.

The children in year 6 enjoy many privileges including:

  • Wearing a special uniform that signifies their special position as the oldest children in the school.
  • Going away on School Journey to Shropshire for an adventure week
  • Being “Top Buddies” for their family groups
  • Participating in Cycling Proficiency
  • Taking a lead in our annual celebration day
  • Acting as ambassadors for the school, meeting and greeting special visitors and acting as tour guides

They also have a number of responsibilities that ensure the smooth running of the school including:

  • Delivering registers to classrooms and carrying out other helpful administrative duties
  • Ensuring classes have the correct laptops and iPads for their lessons,
  • Organising the hall for assemblies and special events
  • Preparing the music for assemblies and hymn practices
  • Leading the School Council and Eco-Council
  • Librarian duties in the school library

We have high expectations of our year 6 children both in terms of their responsibilities and their learning. Ashfield children rise to the challenge and act as excellent role models for the younger children.

Our year 6 curriculum is creative and challenging; and designed to prepare them thoroughly for the new challenges and demands of transition to secondary school.
