The Year 6 teachers are Mr Higgins, Mrs Cartwright and Mrs Yarnold. We are supported by Miss Huntington.
Year 6 is the final year at Horbury Primary Academy before the children leave us to go to their chosen high school. During their journey through Year 6, the children will continue to develop their understanding across the school curriculum. However, as well as this, we also place great emphasis on developing confidence and responsibility in our pupils through a wide range of learning experiences, mentoring roles and job responsibilities across the school.
Year 6 Jobs
Throughout the course of Year 6, the children are encouraged to undertake responsibilities around school. This can come in the form of mentoring roles, representative positions and jobs. We aim to rotate job responsibilities every half term so that everyone has the opportunity to experience a job.
There are weekly P.E sessions for our children. Therefore, each child should ensure that they have the appropriate kit for these sessions. The children need to bring their kit on a Monday and take it home on a Friday. As the weather warms up, there may be opportunities to take part in additional PE sessions.
P.E is a statutory subject and all children are required to take part. If your child is suffering from an injury that prevents them from taking part then please contact the school by telephone or by a note passed to the class teacher. Thank you.
If your child does not bring their kit or brings the wrong kit then they will be issued with a letter which we ask you to sign and return to school. If your child is unable to do P.E please ensure that they have a note to explain why.
Please ensure that if your child requires medication, the school office has been notified and a permission slip has been completed. If your child has an inhaler please ensure that this is passed to the class teacher.
