Welcome to Year Six: The Final Frontier!
Six years of hard work, learning and fun have led your child to their final year at Windermere Primary School.
In Year 6, we aim to create a happy and stimulating learning environment. We recognise the importance of encouragement and celebrate successes to help each child reach their full potential and we want them to acquire a love of learning that will last a lifetime. Year 6 pupils are expected to treat everyone with respect and courtesy and show concern for the needs of others, fostering team work and community spirit. Year 6 is also an opportunity for the children to begin to take on further responsibilities across the school, such as becoming House Captain.
It is important that your child establishes routines that enable them to independently manage their school equipment and homework. They are expected to read daily, learn spellings and complete maths or literacy homework each week. A selection of additional homework tasks from across the curriculum are set termly and allow your child to express their individuality.
With the important transition to secondary school not far away, we will be happy to answer any questions you may have and to guide you through the transition process.
