Welcome to Year 6!
Your child has entered their final year with us at Sandwich Junior School – and it will most certainly be an exciting and fun-filled year to bring a finale to their educational journey with us.
With the transition from primary school to secondary school on the horizon, children are encouraged to develop their maturity and independence to prepare the changes ahead. Our high expectations continue in order to ensure that pupils are ready to leave the year with confidence and there is a lot of fun to be had as well, with the Year 6 Residential Trip to PGL, as well as the wonderful Year 6 production, where children are offered their chance to shine on stage. Children now have a great opportunity to show themselves as role-models, by taking on greater positions of responsibility across the school, such as House Captains and Sports Captains, in addition to the valued roles of School Magazine Reporters, Librarians and Play Leaders all being on offer.
