Ribble Drive Community Primary School

Be the best you can be

Year 6

Hello and welcome to the Year 6 page! This is where you will find all the information you need to know about what we will be doing in Year 6 this term. There is so much to look forward to this year, including class trips, bikeability and special leavers activities at the end of the year. Year 6 children also get the opportunity to become prefects and the whole school votes for our Year 6 head boy and girl. In Year 6, we work hard for your SAT's, and to get you high school ready, but we also have lots of fun all the way through the year. Your last year at Ribble Drive is going to be brilliant!


Our first topic is Rivers. We learn about rivers around the world and in our local area. In this topic, we will also learn to identify the different features rivers have along their course and draw some of those features in sketch maps of a local river. As part of the topic, we also go on a field trip to a local park to look at features of the River Irwell where it meets the River Roch. Our river work also includes looking at how humans use rivers in different ways including for hydroelectric power.



See you in September
