Tuesday 30th November @ 5:30pm
The children will do their autumn term assessments next week.
I always explain to the children that these are nothing for them to worry about as it is an opportunity for them to shine and show me all of the new things they have learnt this year. I have informed them that I do not mind what they score as long as they give 100% effort. I always tell them in anything, if they score 1 out of 40, then next time they try to get 2 so we're making progress. If you could reiterate this message to them next week, I would really appreciate it (they may say they are not allowed to worry unless Mr. W is worried).
Should your child have any worries or concerns during test week, please get in touch with me so I can support them in the best way possible.
Tuesday 30th November @ 5:25pm
For your information, tomorrow will be the last swimming lesson for the children until Wednesday 19th January.
Tuesday 30th November @ 5:20pm
The children will be taking part in their DARE graduation next Tuesday at 9am. Unfortunately, we are unable to invite you to this event at this time, however, I hope to record the assembly and share it with you on the website next week.
Monday 29th November @ 11.30pm
This morning, the children took part in a session about knife crime with the police. This followed on nicely from the DARE session a couple of weeks ago.
They looked at the importance of not carrying a knife, even if they think it will keep them safer. They then looked at the legalities of knife crime, particularly the fact that you can be in trouble with the police if you know a member of your group or friends in carrying the knife. Finally, we looked at how if hurtful it can be for other members of your family.
I would like to thank for the police for taking the time to come into school to work with the children.
Monday 29th November @ 11.25pm

The children are coming to the end of the DARE programme and Mrs Beale has requested that we share the link to the parent questionnaire. Click on the picture above for the link - it should only take a few minutes.
Thank you for your time.
Tuesday 19th October @ 7:30am
Following on from the original online safety morning, Traci Good is coming back into school to work with Year 6 children only - this will take place tomorrow morning.
Traci is incredibly knowledgeable on this subject area and I know that the children will look forward to learning from her.
We (the class) look forward to sharing our learning with you too.
Tuesday 21st September @ 7.45am
Just a quick reminder to say that swimming takes place tomorrow (Wednesday 22nd September). The children will need their swimming gear.
If your child has earrings, then in accordance with DCC guidelines they must be taken out or a shower cap needs to be worn.
Any issues or concerns regarding swimming, please contact me.
Tuesday 21st September @ 6.30am
First of all, can I apologise for not updating the website sooner.
Below are the achievements that the children have made over the last two weeks. Congratulations to the children who achieved Stonebroom Mile certificates - it is very interesting to see where they get to every time they get a new certificate. In terms of the competition against Year 5, Year 6 won the first week comfortably however they lost by a small margin last week. This has left the score tied at 1-1.
Congratulations also go to the children who achieved their pen licence this past Friday. They will keep their licence in school just in case their handwriting deteriorates. Many other children were very close to achieving it and I look forward to them getting their licence in the near future.
Monday 20th September @ 9.45pm
Last week, all of the children were given a leaflet about applying for a secondary school place. It is very important that you apply by the end of October, even if you already have other siblings in the school.
Here is a link for a parental guide to secondary school applications:
Monday 20th September @ 9.30pm
Today, as part of a series of lessons about safety, the children have learnt about childline. They have been taught about the different types of abuse and what they mean, trusted adults that they can tell if they feel they are being abused and how to contact childline (phone number 0800 11 11).
For part of their homework this week, I have asked the children to create a poster which includes their mascot Buddy and the things we have talked about during assembly / in class.
If you would like to watch the assembly, then the link is here:
Tuesday 31st August @ 11.45am
Wow! In just 3 days time, the children will be approaching lunchtime on their first day of school - where has the time gone? I do hope you have all had a fantastic year!
I would like to take this opportunity to welcome every body to Year 6 - it's a busy and hectic year with the main event being SATS in May! For children, the main events are more likely to be Kingswood, the sleepover in school or the potential return to Twinlakes - either way, I know we will all put how heart and sole into everything we do and give 100% effort. It doesn't matter what the children score or achieve as long as they can say they have tried their best and given it their all!
From my end, I will be doing everything in my power to make sure your children are successful in my class. The classroom is ready to go and I am excited to be back teaching (my wallet is pleased I will be back teaching too)! I have always said that it is important that we (school staff & parents) are on the same page when it comes to the children's education, therefore if there is anything I can do to aid and support you, then please come and see me and I will try my best to solve any issues.
Booster sessions and catch-up lessons will also be taking place and I know both Mrs and Miss Hilton are looking forward to working with your children too.
Attached below is a copy of our class timetable for Autumn Term 1 and an outline plan of the year. As always, things may change depending on the different circumstances.
All that is left for me to do is remind you that if you ever have any issues or concerns, please do not hesitate to come and see me. If I am not available, please speak to Mrs Rushton in the school office and she will arrange a time for us to meet.
I look forward to working with everyone this year.
