Year 6 is a huge year for children at Mitton Manor. This year children learn to be independent and responsible as they begin their move towards secondary school. They have their SATs but more than that they benefit from an enriched and widespread curriculum. They will learn a great deal about the world around them as well as about themselves and will make great strides in their preparation for the next big step. It is also a difficult year with lots of change and some big moments, the year 6 team work hard with all colleagues to ensure children enjoy a happy and progressive year which should be full of fun, laughter and responsibility. They will all receive jobs to ensure that they develop confidence and empathy with others and their surroundings.

Also, CPSHE will have a focus on Sex and Relationship Education and children will learn about what happens as we grow and develop.
