As a learning community centred in Christ, we walk hand in hand with God on our journey in faith.

Year 6

6A: Miss Walkley and Mr Kinnersley

6B: Mr Hamilton and Miss McCarthy

Mr Hamilton and Miss Walkley warmly welcome you to the year 6 web page. Firstly, we would like to express how delighted we are to support your child in their final year of primary school at English Martyrs’.


As a learning community, centred in Christ we will support your child to flourish in year 6: so that they will leave with a greater understanding of the world in which they live in and how they can make a difference, walking hand in hand with God at the centre of everything they do.

Being the oldest children in the school comes with extra responsibilities. Their red jumpers set them apart from everyone else and are example setters to the whole school. In year 6, children are expected to display positive and mature attitudes, to be resilient and independent learners who take responsibility for their own learning.


An exciting curriculum lies ahead, where children will study topics such as WW1, WW2, North and South America and Black History Month – please see our study plans for more details. Year 6 is also a special year for the Catholic children who are preparing to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation, where they affirm their willingness to continue their Catholic faith. It is a great joy for everyone in year 6 to be able to support them on this very personal journey of faith.

We aim to ensure your child reaches their full potential in year 6 so that they are prepared to continue their learning journey into secondary school. This is best achieved when school and parents work alongside each other.

If you have any queries regarding your child’s learning, please email:
