Year 6 Information

8c

Ages 11-12

A very warm welcome to the Year 6 pages! Here, you will find out about the exciting year your child will have. It is not only a challenging and energizing time in The Junior School but it is a rewarding, action-packed year which is full of variety and excitement! We believe learning should be fun; an invigorating experience which will serve as an essential stepping stone to further education and beyond.

The Pupils – learning

Learning is organized into cross-curricular, topic based activities over the academic year, in addition to the core subjects. In this way learning is enhanced and more meaningful through topic based ‘themed days’, as well as a range of excursions both locally and beyond Nicosia.

Children are assessed both summatively and formatively over the year in line with the English National Curriculum.

The Pupils – opportunities

Year 6 pupils have the opportunity to become House Captains and Vice Captains. They are responsible for organizing their sports teams in many Interhouse games which take place over the year. Year 6 pupils are also chosen to participate in competitive House matches which are always a thrill for the spectators!

Additional responsibilities are also carried out by Year 6 Prefects whose job is to assist the whole school community. In the past their roles have included; supporting Key Stage 1 pupils with reading in the library, supporting staff within the classroom, collecting the re-cycling each week and ensuring the laptops and iPads are charged.

Over the year we expect all Year 6 pupils to become resilient, independent learners who are well prepared for their future.
