Welcome to Year 6
Welcome to the Year 6 section of the website. For all of our pupils this is the final year of Key Stage 2 and indeed St. Brides Major Primary School. It will undoubtedly be a very busy year as the children prepare for transition to secondary school. In Year 6 we like to focus on developing the skill of independence, not only in Numeracy and Literacy but in all areas of the curriculum and for life. The aim is to develop childrens' creative thinking through topics which allow them to access a wide variety of learning styles.
