History topics covered include World War Two, The Ancient Maya and The Vikings. Geography topics covered include South America, Biomes and Map Skills. Science topics covered include Electricity, Evolution and Inheritance and Light among many others. There are several exciting and engaging sporting events and class trips including the residential school journey to Condover Hall in Shrewsbury. On the school journey, the pupils work on both their independence and skills as a team. For many of the children this is the first trip away from parents but participating in new and stimulating activities that encourage them to develop holistically a great time is had by all!

Year 6 pupils take greater responsibility in helping with the day to day running of the school, through recycling duties, distributing milk and fruit and helping in the office. They have the opportunity to take the lead in many school events, as well as being positive role models to the other pupils.

Our pupils will leave Thorntree as well rounded individuals, who are aware of their strengths and the challenges facing them as they move onto the next stage of their education.

In Year 6 the children will be given a homework grid with a wide variety of different activities every term.  The children will chose an activity to complete each fortnight, selecting an activity from each column of the grid. This allows the children to achieve at their own level, by selecting activities that inspire and challenge them.

The children also use IXL to complete a piece of English and Maths homework as well as spellings, weekly.
