In Year 6, pupils continue to access the specialist facilities at Birchensale, including using the Food Technology and Resistant Materials Rooms. Year 6 is an important year for our pupils, as we help them to prepare for their end of year National Tests (SATs) in English: writing, reading, spelling and grammar and Maths. They are supported to achieve their full potential. The Year 6 curriculum remains broad and balanced throughout. At Birchensale, we aim to further encourage our Year 6 pupils to develop a greater sense of independence, by being involved in some of the decision-making processes of the school through the School Council and participating in numerous after school events.
