Welcome to Year 6, the final chapter of primary school. A year of exciting opportunities, rewarding experiences and challenge! This is your year to shine. From sports competitions to SATs; a trip to the theatre and our residential visit; becoming a prefect or a pupil Chaplain; developing a range of skills as a sports leaders or reporter; there is even public speaking to the final production, there is something for everyone in Year 6.
As well as reaching our potential academically, there will be plenty of opportunities to participate in key roles and responsibilities within the school that will equip you for your transition to secondary school.
In Year 6 you will be expected to work hard but in return, you will be rewarded with many happy memories, lasting friendships, and an increased confidence to take you onto your next adventure.
St Teresa's offers a thematic approach to the curriculum, where we largely teach through topics or themes so that the work pupils do in different subjects is related. Additional work is planned in Mathematics and English and this is increasingly the case as your child gets older. A topic usually covers a term or half-term.
