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 Miss Tomas, Mrs Hancock/Mrs Carr and Miss Waterfield.To support us further, we have Mrs Pruszewicz, Mrs Wasley, Mrs Fostekew and Mrs Bellanti.
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. Throughout the year we have encountered lots of unusual happenings including a quarantine and Cluedo-Who's done it scene. We've used these stimuli to get our creative writing off to a flying start. Secretly we know that the teachers set up these scenes in the classrooms to inspire us.
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.
