Welcome to our Year 6 webpage. We are very proud of our school and take pride in being role models to the younger children. We have thoroughly enjoyed our learning journey through the Calcot Schools but remain determined to give of our best and fulfil our dreams in the future.
We have three classes and our teachers are Mrs Bevan, Miss Potter and Mr Boitsidis. To support us further, we have Mrs Pruszewicz, Mrs Wasley and mrs Rys.
Our working week is full and as independent learners we use every opportunity to deepen our understanding and further develop our skills by applying these in a variety of ways. We are currently studying Carrie's War and as part of our learning we had tea with an evacuee. During the day we spent time talking to evacuees, some of which were ex pupils of the school.
This year we have been taught how to play the steel pans. Opportunities like this are unusual but we absolutely love it! In fact last year we performed in our own Calcot Carnival and we like to showcase our skills in local community events.

Personal care, such as helping someone dress.
