Welcome to Class 7 2020/21. The Class will be taught by Miss McNeill, supported by Mr Jackson, Miss Atkinson and Mrs Hird. There are currently 29 pupils in this class.
My name is Miss McNeill and I have been a teacher at Consett Junior School for 6 years, teaching in Year 6 for the last 4 years.
I love working at Consett Junior School as alongside helping children achieve their full potential, we have a big focus on making memories.
In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my friends and family and taking my dog, Bella, for long walks along the beach.
About Class 7
I am really looking forward to getting to know the new class 7 and working with them over the year; we will be working really hard to meet all of our targets, but will still have lots of fun along the way! Mrs Hird will teach this class on a Monday afternoon.
We will also be working towards our SATs, please don’t worry as we will do everything possible to ensure your child is fully prepared.
There are plenty of exciting opportunities in Year 6 such as our residential to Ford Castle, the Year 6 sleepover and leading both of our amazing school productions.
We will be working hard to develop our reading, writing and SPaG skills during the year. We will be using high quality texts and videos to further enhance our learning.
The text we will be covering over the first half term will be Skellig, by David Almond.
This term we will be mastering the four operations and improving our times table recall. We will be developing our fluency, reasoning and problem solving skills as well as introducing new content to prepare for our SATs.

Lockdown Time Capsule
Hopefully before the end of term we will bury the time capsule in the school grounds. The capsule is part of a project run by Mark Wilkinson Photography. Photographs Mark has received will be printed and placed in the time capsule which will be buried for ten years. To accompany the photographs we are asking the children to write a letter and place it in a sealed envelope. The letter can be about time in lock down, things children did, how they felt, anything they feel relevant. We do want the children to include the date, their age, their class teacher and their first name. But they must not include surnames, phone numbers or their address.
In 2030 we will dig up the capsule and all contents will form part of a history event for our future CJS children.
