Welcome to Malden Manor Primary School

Welcome to Malden Manor, where our aim is to provide an educational experience of the highest quality for all the children in our care. By creating an inclusive and stimulating learning environment, we seek to capture pupils’ interest, extend their knowledge and raise their aspirations. Our teaching and learning is designed to bring learning to life, both in the classroom and through a variety of inspiring experiences in the wider community. In line with our objective of being the best we can be, we encourage children to take an active role in their education, developing the skills they need for independent learning. Parental involvement is vital for children to achieve their best so it is encouraged at every stage of learning.

Malden Manor is a vibrant and welcoming community in which we strive for the highest standards of attainment – whether academic, artistic or sporting. We find and nurture hidden talents, celebrating the strengths of every child.

Our expectations in terms of both learning and behaviour are high and the children respond with delightful enthusiasm, politeness and consideration for others. Our broad curriculum and rich programme of extra-curricular activities – including the popular breakfast and after-school clubs – provide a well-rounded education, supported by excellent pastoral care. Together with my team of dedicated staff and governors, I invite you to visit the school to see for yourself the fantastic opportunities it offers your child.

Year 6

So what happens in . . . .Year 6?

Year 6 is the last year of Key Stage 2 and the final year of primary school. The children all have a job within the school and those that are selected as prefects lead a weekly whole school achievement assembly. We spend a lot of time preparing the children for their end of Key Stage assessments (SATs). Although this can be a daunting time for some children, we ensure that it is manageable for the pupils with lots of rehearsal and familiarisation of what to expect. We also spend time focusing on the transition to secondary school from March onwards once they know their school for September.

We have two classes which are Morris (Mrs Larkin) and Escher (Miss Wilson)

Here’s what our classrooms look like.

This is Morris’ classroom ...

Each class has a book corner but we are lucky to also have the library next door to the Year 6 area which we use for all sorts of things. There are separate cloakrooms and toilets specially for the Year 6 children to use. There is a trolley of 30 chrome books that we share.

Some important things to know about Year 6

We have lots of exciting topics to help us learn all sorts of wonderful topics
Science: electricity, light, human body systems and evolution
History: WW2, Local area of Kingston and early Islamic Civilisation
Geography: Mapwork skills , Fair Trade and Renewable & Non-Renewable energy.
All of these as well as continuing to improve our reading, writing and maths.

To help with our learning in Year 6 we have some exciting events throughout the year such as a visit to Chessington World of Adventures for the interactive Junior Citizenship Programme and a trip to the Lavender Hill Magistrates Court. 

We also look forward to an overnight residential stay, which in recent years has been held at Surrey Outdoor Learning's site at High Ashurst.

You can find information about each of our topics on our curriculum map each term.

Please make sure to bring in your water bottle every day, filled with fresh water.

We also suggest you bring in some fruit to eat at playtime.

We have PE on Wednesday and Thursday. It’s easier to just bring your PE kit in and leave it in school but if you do take it home then make sure it’s in class for those days. Girls, please have your hair tied back on PE days and any jewellery removed or covered up.

We read every day and so you need to make sure that your Reading Record comes to school in your bag every morning. That way it will always be ready should you need to change it or if you need to read individually with somebody. Make sure your grown up writes in your Reading Record every evening when you read to them at home. You will have a wide selection of books to take home from our Year 6 class libraries as well as all of the books from the school reading scheme.

Your homework will be given out on a Thursday and it is due back by the following Tuesday. You have weekly maths and English homework. Don't forget to read everyday!
