Carlton Junior and Infant School


Welcome to Year 6

Welcome to Year 6, the final year of primary school- I hope you make this your year to shine!

We have an exciting year ahead of us. This year will be full of amazing opportunities for you such as trips, competitions, residential visit and an end of year production. However, before we can enjoy these we need to ensure we work extremely hard for our KS2 SATs.

In Year 6 you will be expected to work to the best of your ability but in return, you will be rewarded with many happy memories, lasting friendships, and an increased confidence to take you onto your next adventure- secondary school.

We are very much looking forward to teaching you this year!

Mrs Akhtar, Mrs Audsley and Miss Patel



Stars of the month!

In Year 6, we have created an award for children who demonstrate exceptionally good behaviour; a positive attitude to learning and always demonstrate good manners.

This month, stars of the month have been awarded to Bilal Ahmed and Aminah Pandor for their amazing attitude to learning and always fostering a ‘can do’ approach. They always work well, collaborating with their peers and are ready to support others. Well done Bilal and Aminah!! 



In preparation for our KS2 Christmas assembly- All things Christmas- we looked at how Christmas is celebrated around the world. We also investigated the history of celebrating Christmas and we learnt lots of interesting facts, which we didn’t know before. We learnt who the real Father Christmas was, when carol singing first began and who created the christmas cracker. We will be sharing all we have learnt in our assembly.


In Year 6, we have been writing persuasive letters during assessment week. Children used persuasive language features to persuade their parents to buy them a laptop-strictly for school use. All the children wrote some fantastic letters however, two letters stood out amongst the rest. Aaisha and Paulina produced outstanding letters and also remembered to include most of the Year 6 writing standards- well done girls!
