Welcome to Year 6

Hello and welcome to Year 6, my name is Miss Taylor and I am the class teacher. In Year 6, we strive to create learning environment that is engaging and motivating for all, encouraging all children to fulfil their potential while preparing them for the next step to High School.

As Year 6 are the oldest pupils in the school, we greatly encourage independence and responsibility. All our pupils have taken on extra roles such as: Head boy/girl, Deputies, House Captains and Play Leaders. Throughout St Alban’s, our Year 6 children act as role models to the younger children, demonstrating our school’s core values.

If you have any further question, please do not hesitate to get in touch.  

Kind regards

Miss Taylor

  • Vocabulary
