Year 6 is such an exciting year, and we do try to do lots of fun and exciting things as well as lots of HARD WORK! The focus is getting you ready for secondary school and for you to leave Cranford Primary School well equipped and more independent, ready for the challenges ahead.
Try your best and everything else falls into place.
The children have now completed their SATs. A big well done to all children for their hard work throughout the year.
This week, the children have been learning about road safety and they were lucky enough to watch a performance delivered by 'Be Bright, Travel Right'. The children thoroughly enjoyed the show and learnt a lot from it.
Some children in Year 6 said this about the show:
"The actors were really humorous and the learning was made fun"
"The show was outstanding!"
"We were able to contribute, which made the show even better.
IMPORTANT - SATs
Throughout the year, the children have been working very hard towards their final end of KS2 assessments (SATs). These assessment commence on 14th May 2018 and therefore, the next few weeks are very important for all children.
Children will still receive daily homework which will be marked the following day in class. We appreciate parent support with this and it also enables children to identify any areas of the curriculum that they may still be struggling with.
During the week of SATs, we will be offering breakfast to all children in Year 6. We encourage them to join us for breakfast in the hall to help ease any worries they may have of the day ahead. Breakfast will start at 8.20am (children must not arrive any earlier than this time).

European Fairs - December 2017
This week, the children in Year 6 enjoyed presenting their European travel fairs to other children in the year group. Over the weeks prior to the event, the children carried out some research about their chosen country: Germany, Belgium, Spain, Russia to name a few. Children displayed their research and information in many different ways: informative posters; landscape artwork; mathematical problems relating to currency; Powerpoint presentations and more. Some groups even brought in food which was linked to their country. All children enjoyed the event and were able to learn a lot along the way.
