Welcome to St. Philip’s Primary

Welcome to Year 6D; bring your 'can-do attitude' and let's start our learning journey!


Year 6

Hello all and welcome to Year 6! In Year 6, we welcome mathematicians, authors, scientists, computer programmers, historians, artists, musicians, athletes, geographers, designers, and linguists!  What an exciting and exhilarating year lies ahead.  All we ask is that you turn up to school each day with a 'can do' attitude, a kind heart and that you leave your fear of failure at the door!  Do this and we guarantee that you will achieve your potential, have lots of fun and create lots of memories along the way.

Reading a HUGE part of Year 6; read and you will gain great knowledge! Reading opens doors to imaginary worlds and holds the key to you being an excellent communicator and author. Tell us what you are reading, enjoy the library and recommend a book to your friends!

Take a look at our Parent Planner to give you a glimpse of what learning challenges lie ahead of us this term and keep up to date with class dojo where we will share more of what is going on in class.
