Year 6

Welcome to Year 6. From Parents to carers, pupils to school staff we are all one team! Throughout our learning journey, each child is offered the opportunity to take part in a range of activities including; Viking Workshops, Museum Visits, Forest School and an activity filled residential (and all that alongside the learning that takes place in the classroom!). Year 6 is the time we prepare for big changes and challenges in our lives, such as SATs and the transition to high school. We know that everything we do here at Boundary helps prepare us for the next stage of our education and we will leave primary school ready to face our new challenges.

We look forward to sharing these exciting¬†opportunities¬†with you and ‘working as one to be the best that we can be!’
