Life in Year 6
There’s probably only one word to describe life in Year 6- busy! Year 6 means the end of primary school and building up to saying ’Goodbye to Glebe’. There’s a lot to get done. We need to choose secondary schools, visit these schools and make sure we are in the best possible place to be secondary school ready. And we can’t forget the end of primary school assessments -SATS- that we need to be ready for in May and show off just how awesome we are.
But whilst we work hard, we play hard too. There’s sporting activities and tournaments, a fantastic offsite residential, our ‘Red Carpet Assembly’ and a creating legendary musical to top it all off!
So, hold onto your hats Year 6. It’s busy. It’s fun. It’s hard work. But we promise it’s worth it.

Spring Term Topic 2020: We'll Meet Again
We are all looking forward to yet another amazing term in Year 6, which has already started with our ‘Evacuee/WW2 Day’. The children looked incredible in their outfits and really embraced the role of evacuees. Many local residents stopped to chat to us on our walk around Southwick including genuine evacuees. Our surprise visit to Manor Cottage was an added bonus for the children to see and learn about one of the oldest buildings in Southwick as well as hearing the WW2 stories of Mr & Mrs Richards’ (who run the cottage) lives during WW2.
Our World War theme is an opportunity for children to learn more about a pivotal chapter of European History and its impact on our country. It will link to several subjects across the curriculum. Please see our topic web below for more detail.
