Welcome to Year 6! We are ‘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 and we also have Mrs Gore teach us on a Wednesday afternoon.
Our day is packed full of learning! A typical day in Swans starts with handwriting or arithmetic before we complete spelling and grammar. We then do our maths lesson before break and English and reading afterwards. Our mornings are slightly longer at the moment due to staggered timings so we do our class worship before lunch – we are especially good at ‘Picture News’. Our afternoons vary and include PE, music, art, DT, topic, computing, RE, French and science.
Some of our topics in Year 6 include The United States of America, The British Empire and an Ancient Chinese mystery! 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.
