Believe, Achieve, Succeed

Year 6

Welcome to Beech and Rowan Base!

 This week, we are:

  • Continuing our persuasive writing unit planning and writing an advert to persuade visitors to book a holiday to a destination of our choosing.
  • Carrying out a maths project, linked to our topic learning, using a range of skills to plan and budget for a holiday around the world!
  • Introducing our Y5/6 show and beginning to think about roles and learning the songs.
  • On Friday we will be having a secondary school transition workshop with the HeadsUP team. Please see details below for information about our parent/carers session next week.

To support us at home: 

  • Please read at least 3 times a week. Please ask your adult to sign your Reading Record. 3 Reads will be checked on Fridays.
  • Practise your times tables by: using TTRS, reciting them to an adult, write out a tricky table and then inverse to practise division.
  • You can let us know about your home learning on Seesaw – year 6 teachers will check Seesaw every Thursday.
