Hello and welcome to Year 6!


We are excited to experience this year with you and are thrilled to be spending your last year at primary school with you, making fantastic lasting memories! You will spend your time in Year 6 with me, your class teacher, Miss Heron and Mrs Sharp who is our wonderful classroom support.


Undoubtably, Year 6 is a pivotal year and we will be working hard to ensure that you reach your highest potential and shine. Here in Year 6, we aim to create a welcoming, enriching environment that will allow all children to develop independence, resilience and knowledge through a rich and varied curriculum. We will make sure that learning and the opportunities you have are interesting, rewarding and most of all, help you to prepare for real life as we support you in your transition to secondary school.


There is so much to look forward to this year, including: being stretched and challenged, an exciting curriculum, trips and wonderful visitors, taking part in the Cumbrian Award, representing the school in many sporting events and an end of year production. Your last year at St Mary's is going to be brilliant!


We look forward to a busy year!

We Shall Remember

Our Class Saints

St. Maximillian Kolbe (Feast Day- 14th August)

In 1914, during the Second World War, Kolbe was arrested and sent to Auschwitz because he was Jewish. In Auschwitz, he continued to work as a priest and offer solace to fellow prisoners despite the terrible circumstances he endured. When the Nazi guards selected 10 men to be starved to death in punishment, he volunteered to die in place of a strange. This demonstrates that he was selfless and courageous person who showed great compassion to others.


St. Josephine Bakhita (Feast Day-

St. Josephine Bakhita is a fantastic role model to others because she endured the horrors of slavery and suffered for many years before she escaped into freedom through the group of religious sisters she joined. When Bakhita escaped slavery she found God and opened her heart to him; she forgave those who treated her so badly and welcomed others with a smile.
