Year 6

Watson class

In Year 6, we ensure that all pupils have secured the key skills and knowledge they need to be successful in secondary school, which is inclusive of character skills and global perspectives that will prepare them for lifelong learning.

We have a bespoke transition for our year 6 students, as part of our haberdashers’ advantage, whereby they have opportunities to experience secondary school life in our local Trust secondary school. Furthermore, they will have experienced specialist teaching in areas such as art and music from our secondary colleagues to help to prepare them for the expectations at secondary school.

In the Autumn term, pupil learning is led by the curriculum vehicle ‘vote for me’ which allows pupils to respond to the critical question: ‘How can we narrow inequalities?’ This is supported by challenging texts which enhance pupil knowledge of social justice and equity, as well as enhance their ability to think critically and problem-solve. 

We are committed to achieving the 2030 agenda for sustainable development, and share the belief that ‘ending poverty and other deprivations must go hand-in-hand with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth – all while tackling climate change and working to preserve our oceans and forests.’ – UN. We have a moral imperative to educate our pupils about how they can create a sustainable world and we empower them to teach others.

Vote for me!

Students work in groups to create a presidential campaign in school. They explore previous campaigns, evaluating their effectiveness, and what the focus of those campaigns was. Their campaign will focus on social justice and equity, and how they would aim to achieve this should they be named president. This culminates in the ‘presidential nominees’ delivering their speeches to the rest of the school, with a ‘vote’ held afterwards for the junior leadership team.
