Year Six is an exciting time for all children, their final year in primary school. At Esh Winning we aim to prepare our children for the next important step in their education. We promote all children’s independence, resilience and collaboration through whole class teaching, group projects and individual responsibilities. Year Six proudly represent the school as tuck shop monitors, Mini Police, School Council, at Sporting competitions and festivals, Phoenix Fire Champions and the Pride Youth Network.
Mrs Grainger is the Class Teacher, Miss Oakley and Mr. McCauley are the Teaching Assistants and Miss Ward is the Learning Support Assistant.
