Welcome to Year 6
Year 6 is an exciting and challenging year at Benyon Primary School as we encourage the children to be more responsible and independent in their learning. This year is important in beginning to prepare the children for the transition to secondary school. There is a focus on team building and working co-operatively with their class members. We use investigations and problem-solving tasks to ensure the children become critical thinkers. We strongly believe that these skills are vitally important in helping pupils become ready for secondary education and beyond.

We will continue to set homework on SATs Companion this year. Tasks will be set on a Friday with a deadline of the following Friday. You can expect to find a Reading task (with related questions), a Mathematics task, weekly spellings and GPS. Weekly spelling tests will take place on a Friday. Weekly times tables will be sent home as a paper version, but children can also practice via TT Rockstars.
Learn your times tables whilst having fun!
Maths, SPaG and Reading tasks can be accessed on here. This is where weekly homework will be set.
This is an exciting spelling and maths resource for the children to explore and practice weekly spellings.
We expect year 6 to read a book of choice each evening. They then add a comment or summary to the class forms - this can be found in the window of the classroom. This acts as a reading diary.
A great website which children can use to deepen their understanding of a topic even further.
