Staff Team: Miss Sibson, Mrs Eddleston, Mrs Mueller (HLTA) and Mr Evans. PE Coach: Mr Grey
Year 6 is a great place to be; lots of hard work and lots of fun too! Our aim is to make the last year of primary school a special one where children can reach their full potential and shine as a person and also as a learner.
Miss Sibson teaches Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and Mrs Eddleston Thursday and Friday. Mr Evans is a trainee teacher. Mrs Mueller is here every day.
PE is on Tuesday afternoon.The children will need an outdoor PE kit with trainers and, when it is colder, a long sleeved sweatshirt and joggers. Shorts and a t-shirt are required for indoor PE. Please ensure that all items of kit and uniform are clearly named.
Home learning is set on a Friday to be handed in the following Wednesday. We use Google Classrooms to share work with your child if they need to self-isolate, so please ensure that they always know how to access this. We also use it to store our daily planning, so there’s no need for your child to repeat work they have done in class!
We hope that using Google Classroom will help develop the children’s independence in becoming secondary school ready – we see this year as a time to help them learn to ‘fly’ on their own as they move into the next stage of their school career.
Reading really is the key that underpins everything to your child’s future success- we LOVE losing ourselves in a book and hope that this enthusiasm transfers to your child. Please, please encourage them to read for 30 minutes a day and sign their learning journal daily. They should also be regularly completing AR quizzes in school.
We use the Accelerated Reader Scheme for reading. If you would like to check the AR level of a book, you can use this website:
