Welcome to Year 6! As we approach the end of KS2, we strive for high standards in learning, progress, and achievement, whilst ensuring the year is engaging and memorable for all. We aim to inspire curiosity, resilience, and a love of learning that will follow children as they embark on the next step of their academic journey into secondary school.

Here, you can find an overview of the Year 6 Curriculum. You can use this information to discuss with your child what they have learned and continue to support their learning at home.
