Grade 6

In Grade 6, the advisory group serves as the organizational and support anchor to the year. Students meet in their advisory at the start of each day. After advisory, students have classes with different teachers for English, social studies, math, science, world languages, music, art, coding, physical education, drama and health.

In the advisory period at the start of each day, building relationships and guiding RULER implementation are prioritized to create a supportive advisory community centered on emotional intelligence, growth and meaningful connections. We teach the RULER approach through engaging activities and discussions that empower students to recognize, understand and regulate their emotions, fostering a positive and empathetic environment. Grade 6 teachers work together closely to meet the academic, social and emotional needs of students.

Spring overnight trip
Grade 6 students go to an adventure center near Swindon for four days after the late May bank holiday. Cooperative activities on site are combined with time in Bath at the Roman baths and to Fishbourne Roman Palace. The goals of this trip include developing friendships and strengthening existing ones, challenging students to try new activities and igniting interests in new hobbies, and developing a healthy sense of self awareness and empathy for others.
