Year 6JT 2021 - 2022

I am delighted to welcome back my new class this year. It is so lovely to be back in school and it almost feels like we are back to life before the pandemic began. I was very excited preparing the classroom and putting the tables back into groups once again and it was great to see all the children's happy faces sat together.  It is such an exciting time for them to be back with all of their friends and getting back into a routine. 

Remember to read our class blog regularly to keep updated with events and to see what the children have been learning. We wil be doing lots of exciting activities and lessons this year. 

Year 6 is a very important year. Please still make sure that all Year 6 pupils are reading for 20 minutes every night and bring their Reading Record back to school, signed by an adult, so we can check how they have read in the morning. Every minute counts! We have lots of exciting books and texts for the children to read so they have plenty of choice. 

Banded reading books will be handed out to take home and checked every morning. The children will also have a book that they will read in class throughout the week.  

Children will need to wear their PE kits to school with their school jumper over their t-shirt on Mondays and Tuesdays. It is a good idea for them to wear suitable footwear throughout the week as they will be completing the daily mile outside, weather permitting. 

I am so excited to announce that the children in year 6 will be going swimming every Wednesday morning and we have sent out a letter to explain what they will need. The reason for this is because we know they missed out in year 4 and we, as a school, feel it is important to make sure all children develop this vital life skill. 



What Year 6 have to say about Miss Thornton:
Miss Thornton always helps you when you are stuck on something.
Miss Thornton is the best teacher.
Miss Thornton is a great teacher because she makes us laugh, she is kind and she supports us.
She prepares all of our activities, she makes us laugh, she is kind, and we think she is the best teacher in the whole world.
Her lessons are clear and fun and I feel more confident when asking for help.

She always shows us how we need to behave and helps us to achieve her goals.
