Hello, Year 5 – welcome to the Year 6 page!
Mr Brown here. I am very much looking forward to being your teacher next year, and I hope you’re excited about it too. On this page, you will find the following important things:
– My YouTube video about your new classroom;
– An ‘All About Me’ presentation, to help you get to know me a little better
– An ‘All About Me’ activity for you to complete over summer, for you to bring back in September so that I can get to know you a little better too.
This final activity is quite simple – you need to either print a male / female head outline (see below), or draw your own on a piece of A4 paper. Then, you should fill the head with lots of colourful pictures of your favourite hobbies, interests, family members, pets – anything you feel best represents who you are. I’ve attached my example so you can get an idea of what you need to do. Bring this with you on the first day back in September so you can share it with me and the rest of the class, to help us all get to know you. Who knows, you might discover something about a friend that you never knew before!
Here are the templates (either print or draw your own), plus my example – can you work out what sort of things I’ve included?
To keep you busy over summer, try these activities:
