Welcome to Year Six
The teachers in Year Six are Miss Doherty (Year Band Leader) Mr Flanagan, Miss Graham and Mr Reid.
Welcome to the Year 6 page.
We have made a fantastic start to the school year and are adapting extremely well to the new routine of Year 6. Each and every one of us are working extremely hard in all areas of school life, making our teachers and parents very proud. This new term has already seen us grow into more independent learners, accepting new challenges with positivity and determination.
Remember to keep working hard at home with your child. Please practice tables, spellings and reading nightly. We are extremely lucky to have Accelerated Reader and Accelerated Maths in our school so remember to keep quizzing on both.
We have a busy and exciting year ahead so keep an eye on our page to keep updated with our learning journey. Remember to sign up to Seesaw to receive regular updates. You can also keep up to date with school events on our Twitter site; @stoppsbelfast

Throughout the year we will look at a variety of grammatical concepts. There will be a focus on a different topic per week.
There will be a variety of areas covered in Numeracy this year. We will look at number and topic based lessons including mental maths activities and problem solving. We are very fortunate to have the use of Accelerated Maths in school which will be incorporated into lessons and reflect subjects being taught. In addition to this we will also use Izak 9 throughout the course of the year.

Wednesday is our PE day so children should come to school in their PE gear; white polo shirt, navy tracksuit bottoms and trainers. Please remember to bring a coat to school everyday.
The way homework is completed has now changed. Children now bring their homework for the week home on Monday and this is returned to school on Friday morning. It is extremely important that homework books returned to school on Friday. Please check Seesaw for an update on homework.
