Welcome to Year 6
We’re Year 6 and our class name is Oak. Our team consists of our teacher Miss Phillips and our teaching assistants Mrs Catterall and Mrs Ashcroft.
Year 6 is a pivotal year not only in regards to the SATs tests undertaken in May but also in terms of the emotional and physical developments your children will embark on, as they begin to flourish into young adults and think about their transition to High School and starting a new chapter iin their lives.
Our shared vision is that every child in Year 6 will leave Eccleston with an “I can do’ attitude and the personal grit and determination to be the best that they can be. Future aspirations and prospects are at the forefront of everything we do; we want our children to leave knowing that we all believed in them and encouraged them to do the best that they can in preparing them to be confident learners in a changing world.
