Welcome to Year 6
Hello and welcome to year six. My name is Mr Spence and I have been teaching at Crow Orchard for eight years. Two in year four and my sixth year in year six.
In Year Six, we have to do lots of hard work to prepare for the SATs, but the children really enjoy doing the tests and seeing how much they have achieved. Aside from reading, writing and maths we also manage to squeeze in other subjects.
By this stage the children in year six are often ready to move up to high school. I help them with the transition of becoming young adults and responsible for their own learning.
If you have any questions feel free to pop in or give me a call to arrange an appointment.
Please have a look at this video link. It will give you more information about the new SAT's Tests.
This year the school will be taking part again in the School Health Needs Assessment (SHNA) in partnership with the school nurse teams from Lancashire Care NHS Foundation Trust. This helps us to better understand and respond to the health and well-being needs of children in the school and also for extra support to be given if needed. If your child is in Reception or Year 6 you will be asked to complete a questionnaire. Children in Year 6 will also complete one in class.
The majority of schools in Lancashire are involved in this and last year over 30,000 children and parents took part! If you would like to know more about this the school nurse will be happy to tell you more.
