Welcome to Year 6
Staff in your classroom: Miss Laura Jackson(teacher) Mrs Gemma Martin (teacher) Mrs Lynn Youhill (teaching assistant)
Your interests/hobbies: I (Miss Jackson) love anything and everything to do with the theatre. I enjoy keeping fit by running, swimming and walking. Travelling is another thing I am passionate about and enjoy hearing about new and exciting places to visit.
I (Mrs Martin) love to read and write and I think that this is why I enjoy the Year Six English work so much. I am also very happy whenever I am out in the sunshine, running as I do love to keep fit and enjoy the coutryside too.
What can children expect in your year group: Year 6 is a fantastic year; it’s the final year in primary school and goes with a bang! We work extremely hard, it’s head down and nose to the grindstone, making sure we are achieving our true potential in readiness for High School. After SATs we let our feet off the gas a little and throw ourselves into drama and a more creative curriculum. In year 6 you can expect to work very hard but have lots of fun along the way, you’ll be fully prepared for the challenges and excitement of going up to High School and into a new big wide world!
How can parents help in your classroom e.g. any useful websites you would like adding to your class page. Parents can help just by continuing to be supportive as your child reaches the end of their Primary School journey. Do keep that home/school link going and do pop in to see us all, just because we’re top juniors doesn’t mean you can’t come in to help – you’d be made most welcome.
