Welcome to Year 6
We've made it to the top of the primary school ladder. Because we are the oldest in school, we like to set an excellent example to younger children. We aim to do many things in Year 6: show respect for others; show great resilience when problems occur; always try our hardest and demonstrate exemplary behaviour.
We'll be learning about a whole range of topics from entertainment in the 20th century to the daily lives of ancient civilisations. We'll be using our mathematical knowledge to solve problems, and we'll be learning about classification of animals in science. In English, we'll be swept away to new places and writing our own thriller stories.
Homework - each week, we will be given two pieces of homework. One piece will be given out on Tuesdays and must be returned on Friday. The second piece will be given out on Friday and will be returned on Tuesday. Where possible, homework will be set on mymaths or Purple Mash. Reading books will also be changed and sent home on Tuesdays and Fridays.
Year 6 will be our final year in Beaconhill before moving onto the next chapter. We'll be working hard to prepare for our transition to secondary school. We'll be supported this year by our class teacher, Miss Dobson, and our teaching assistants - Mrs Luke-Green and Mrs Bradshaw. Mr. Gray will be teaching us on Fridays, focussing on shape and space, spellings and Science.
We looking forward to the year ahead and thank you all for your support in our final year.
Year 6 and the Year 6 team.
