At Tees Valley Education, we view our broad and balanced curriculum as the totality of every planned experience and interaction that our children will encounter.  It saturates and informs every aspect of our practice, provision and culture. We build the supporting frameworks around the children, which will allow them to develop the characteristics that ensure they are ready to learn, allowing them to become independent, confident and successful learners, preparing them well for the next step in their education journey.

Y6 Teacher: Miss Arkless

Welcome to Year 6, the final year of Primary! What an exciting year ahead we have from residentials, trips, sporting competitions and much more. Also a very important year for the children as they will be completing their SATs in May which will assess their Reading, Writing and Mathematics. We know the children will always aspire to do their very best and achieve what they deserve at the end of the year. Have a fabulous final year in Dormanstown.

We regularly feature the learning activities from each class on our weekly blog, so please have a look at this and the academy gallery, together with posts on our social media. Links to all of these pages can be found under the Celebrating Dormanstown tab.

In year 6 we have been learning about electricity and circuits. We recapped what the components were that were needed for making a circuit.

To start with, we only had one wire, one bulb and one battery and we had to make the bulb light up. This was a challenge as many of us remembered from year 4 having more components.

Eventually we worked it out and got the bulb lit it!
