Year 6

As the most senior pupils at Fairfield, the Year 6 children are expected to behave in a mature, responsible manner and are given privileges to reflect this.  They are encouraged to stretch themselves individually, take on positions of responsibility, both inside and outside of the classroom, and to be proud of their achievements.

The year commences with a strong academic focus.  Throughout the Autumn Term language, mathematical and reasoning skills are revised, strengthened and extended so that the Entrance Exam in January can be approached confidently.

In humanity subjects, group tasks as well as individual projects are undertaken with research skills being developed. In History the children travel from 1930 to the present day, gaining an understanding of how life has changed during this period and particularly the effects of World War II. Natural disasters and Rivers are the two major topics within Geography lessons alongside a continual development of map skills. The Year 6 Residential Trip is a marvellous opportunity for the children to challenge themselves in outdoor adventurous activities; they learn a lot about each other and working in a team. Year 6 culminates with two highly enjoyable activity weeks in the summer term. The normal timetable is abandoned in favour of creative tasks: Firstly art week encourages the pupils to experiment with new materials and learn new skills. Fairfield has many permanent reminders of the superb work produced by previous pupils including sculptures, mosaics, wall hangings and paintings.  Secondly every child becomes fully involved in Drama Week.  They are given the opportunity to sing and dance which leads to an enthusiastic and vibrant performance at the end of the term given in front of parents, children and staff, enabling the children’s talents to be recognised. Memories of these weeks stay with the children for many years.
