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 PurpleMash this year. Tasks will be set on a Friday with a deadline of the following Wednesday. You can expect to find a Reading task (with related questions), a Mathematics task, weekly spellings and weekly times-tables. Sometimes, a task relating to the topics being covered in the foundation subjects will also be set. All tasks can be accessed by clicking the 'alerts' button at the top of the page.

Home Learning Covid-19
During the Covid-19 school closure, support for home learning was provided for all pupils in Year 6 via educational websites such as PurpleMash, EdShed, TT Rockstarsand Reading Pro (Scholastic). Should we find ourselves in a position where we have to isolate a particular year group or go into lockdown again, yours child's log ins for all of these websites have been stuck inside the front page of their Reading Record. If you are having trouble accessing these, please contact us on admin.BPS@catrust.org.uk and we will help to get you up and running.
In the event of another lockdown or Year 6 having to isolate, further information on home learning will be posted here.
