Year 6

Teacher: Mr Smith & Mrs Foy
Teaching Assistant: Mrs Harvey
In Year 6 we are working hard as we come to the end of our time at Orchard Primary School. Although the work is challenging in our final year, we are also learning about lots interesting topics and having exciting trips outside of school. We are becoming confident, independent learners to help prepare us for secondary school.

Our teachers recognise that we learn in different ways and are also helping prepare us for our key stage 2 SATs. The work is challenging and they have high expectations of us, but we also enjoy our learning and will rise to challenges so that we have a successful final year at Orchard.

To find out more about our class and the things we have got up to please take a look below.

We have thought about what motivates people to say unkind things: resentment, jealousy and peer pressure as well as the effect on the person being talked about.
