The Year 6 team welcomes you to possibly the most action-packed year in your Lady Boswell’s life! The year kicks off with a real focus on challenge as we set ourselves targets and embrace the additional responsibilities that come with Year 6.
During the first two terms, we travel back in time to investigate what life was like in World War 2, with a focus on Remembrance and WW1 at the beginning of term 2. We also set up our links with our partner school in France, writing to our pen pals for the first time and visiting them in October.
As we move into terms three and four, the topic is North America with a geographical focus, contrasting human and physical aspects of Britain and North America. We also develop our map reading skills.
Terms five and six are even busier; with the national SATs looming soon after we return to school after Easter, we start with a whirlwind revision of the amazing amount we have learned during our 7 years at Lady Boswell's. No sooner is this done than we prepare for our exciting summer-term residential at the Kingswood activity centre in Norfolk. The fun doesn’t end there! We are extremely busy in term 6 with rehearsals for our amazing Year 6-led summer production, which takes place at the Stag Community Arts Theatre. It is the climax to our year. Term 6 also sees us participate in local events such as the Rochester Cathedral Church Schools' Celebration and complete transition projects and visits to our chosen secondary schools.
You can see why there are always so many happy memories of Year 6 to share at our Leavers’ Service in July!
