Welcome to the Sixth Grade! 

Students should be prepared for an exciting, yet challenging, last year at Buckingham Elementary! Below are the highlights of our academic year:

·         Reading and English Language Arts

  • Increased focus on nonfiction and novels
  • Application of reading strategies
  • Integrating the writing process, research, and grammar
  •  Pre-Algebra concepts at all academic levels

·         Science

  • Focus on the Scientific Method
  • Learning about the human body, earth's changing surface, and pollution

·         Social Studies

  • History of Ancient Civilizations

In addition to the above, students will participate in a multi-day project, also known as the Sixth Grade Assessment. This Assessment, which takes place in the second semester, is a cumulative project that encompasses all skills learned in elementary school.

Sixth grade students are Mighty Knight role models for the entire school, especially the Kindergarten students in our hallway.
