Welcome to Year 6! We are called ‘Swans’ and Miss White is our class teacher. As the oldest children in school, we take on lots of roles and responsibilities; we are chosen to be head boy/girl, sports councillors and house captains. We love to help out around school and are fantastic role models to the younger children.
Mrs Mayoh works with us throughout the week to support our learning.
A typical day in Swans starts with handwriting before we go to the hall for worship. We then do our maths lesson before break. After break, we do spelling, grammar, book talk and English. Our afternoons vary and include PE, music, topic, computing, RE, French, and science.
Some of our topics in Year 6 include World War Two, Rivers and Coasts and Ancient Greece. We really enjoy computing, too, where we create our own apps and animations using new software. Our English and maths lessons are very busy and we enjoy learning at a fast pace in order to practise and prepare for SATs in May. We also have the option to stay for booster club on Thursdays after school.
In Year 6, we spend a week at Hinning House on residential where we make memories we will cherish forever! We also put on an end-of-year production to celebrate our wonderful years at St. John’s.
St. John’s holds an open door policy. If you would like to visit our Year 6 class please contact the school office on 0161 790 2195 and we will be happy to arrange a visit for you.
