Year 6

Welcome to Year 6 
We've made it to the top of the primary school ladder. Because we are the oldest in school we have agreed that we will be excellent role models for younger pupils. 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.
Robinwood - we are pleased to offer our Year 6 pupils the exciting opportunity to visit the residential centre, Robinwood, again this year. Pupils (and staff) are looking forward to the activities on offer, including Archery, Big Swing, Caving, Piranha Pool and Zipline.

Homework - this will be handed out on Fridays (Maths and English) and should be returned by Thursday of the following week. In addition to homework, reading books will be given out on Tuesdays and returned on Mondays. We will also practise our spellings and grammar on Emile and our times tables facts on Times Tables Rock Stars. 

PE days - Monday and Tuesday. We're looking forward to visits from the Newcastle Foundation this year as well as swimming lessons in the summer term. 

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 teachers, Miss Dobson and Mrs. Cragg, and our teaching assistants: Mrs. Mort,  Mrs. Wilson and Mrs. Wharton.  

We are looking forward to the year ahead, and thank you all for your support in our final year.
