Year 6

Welcome to Year 6




Our Topic for this half term will be: Hola Mexico!

Learning for this term takes a slightly different approach; we will be applying all of the skills we have been learning throughout the year, building resilience and teamwork skills and creating memories during our final weeks at Bishop Ridley.


While we complete our Hola Mexico theme, we also have a number of end of year duties and mini-projects that need completing. It’s an exciting time to be in Year 6, but we must stay focused on the following tasks:


Mayan Day

For History Week, we will be having a themed day on Monday 10th June. This will be one of our final experiences for this topic. You’re welcome to dress up in the theme of Hola Mexico: Day of the Dead, mariachi, Ancient Mayans, etc.


NSPCC Fundraising

As part of our outreach work, we have been invited by the NSPCC to organise and run a fundraiser. Year 6 have been working with Sam from the NSPCC, and will be managing the event (for the whole school) on Friday 14th June. You are welcome to dress in green: the NSPCC colour.


Writing Moderation

As part of quality assurance for Bexley, we are privileged to be welcoming the Writing Moderators to our school on Friday 14th June. We are looking forward to showcasing our children’s learning.


Gilwell Park

From June 17th to June 21st, we are finally heading on our biggest adventure yet: Gilwell Park. For those who are staying behind, there is also a fun-packed schedule planned.



As soon as we return from our residential, we will be dedicating as much of our time as possible to creating a memorable production. Thank you for your support. Costume details, etc. will be shared in due course.


Leavers’ Assembly

Once our production is over, we will be organising our final assembly together, ready for the last day.
