Welcome to Year 6
Our teacher in Year 6 is Mr Townsend and he is helped by Miss Clegg and Mrs Stott. It is an important year for us as it is our last before we move on to high school! We always try our best in all that we do whether it is working hard towards our SATs or being a role model to the younger children in our school. Why not have a look at what we have been doing lately by checking out our class blog by clicking the link below...
We also have our own Learning Wall - see link below. We use the resources on the Wall to research out topics and curriculum work in school. Please use these resources at home to further develop your child's learning.
