Welcome to Year 6. This is an important year for the children in lots of different ways. Around school the children will take on a greater deal of responsibility, in various roles from dinner time buddies to manning the office, and will be setting the example for the younger children. There are important decisions to be made particularly in terms of their preferences for secondary school. Again this year we will be going to the Christian Mountain Centre in Wales for our residential trip where the children will learn a great deal about themselves and the importance of teamwork when facing difficult problems. I suspect that this year's Year 6 will be another competitive group on the sporting front and will represent the school well whenever they have the chance. I'm sure that with hardwork and encouragement this class will take on all the different challenges and opportunities with a positive attitude.
