Welcome to our Year 6 class page!
Year 6 is the most important year at St Thomas'. It is the year when the children reach the top of the school, bringing a sense of maturity and responsibility. Year 6 children carry out prefect and other duties during their time in Year 6, looking after our younger children. They are expected to lead by example, and enjoy rising to the challenge.
Year 6 is also a time when the children begin thinking about their choice of secondary school. There are, of course, periods when the children prepare for and sit tests. At the beginning of the Year (September/October), there are the Medway and Kent tests. Many of our children sit the 11+ and are successful. We also have the end of year SATs tests. Preparation for these tests requires a lot of commitment from the children, especially if they are to fulfil their potential.
Of course, Year 6 is not all about tests - we have lots of fun too! We have tales to write, poems and books to explore, experiments to investigate, races to win, and lots of problems to solve; but most of all we aim to develop a love and passion for learning.
