School Structure >> Key Stage 2 >> Year 6
Year 6 is an important year for the children as they make the transition from Key Stage 2 to Key Stage 3.
In Year 6 we prepare our pupils for the transition to secondary education. We instill in them the independence and initiative needed to be active and independent learners. They will use their knowledge of Assessment for Learning to take charge of their learning; pupils know what they need to learn, where they are with their learning and what their next learning steps are.
The children follow the National Curriculum for English and Mathematics and all other areas of the curriculum are taught through creative and relevant programs of study. Year 6 consolidates and revises skills, knowledge and understanding from across Key Stage 2, but is still kept fresh and exciting with new topics being planned this year.
This year we are learning about ‘The World’ with an individual continent study carried out by each of the classes allowing them to learn about the physical and human geography of the world around us. We will also be learning about an area relevant and specific to Dukhan – Black Gold. The children will study oil production and its importance in the world we live in. We will then finish our year by taking a look at the Olympics in Rio. We will also continue to support our budding scientists with hands on approaches to the curriculum – with a range of scientific experiments that explore Electricity, Light, Living Things and their Habitats, Evolution and Inheritance, How to Keep Healthy and Nutrition and Digestion.Parents can keep up to date with what’s going on in Year 6 here: Moodle Downloads:
