Welcome to Class 8. The Class Teacher is Miss Waters and there are currently 25 pupils in this class. Miss Oselton supports this class.
My name is Miss Waters and I am Deputy Headteacher at Consett Junior School. I have been a teacher for nine years now, teaching mainly in Year 6. I love working at Consett Junior School as this is my hometown and I actually came to this school as a child, so I am extremely passionate about ensuring every child achieves their full potential while they are here. On evenings after school I like to swim and play the cornet in Consett Brass Band. I also enjoy spending quality time with my friends and family.
About Class 8
Class 8 will be working really hard this year as the all-important SATs tests approach but we will also have some good fun along the way!
This half term our class will be using multimedia as a stimuli for writing. We look forward to sharing some of our work with you.
In Maths we are working hard, to improve the speed of our times table recall. We are focusing on problem solving and reasoning in Maths. We still have lots to cover before SATs such as co-ordinates, angles and translation.
Children have access to Accelerated Reader from school and home and are encouraged to use this site by logging in with their unique passwords.
Work Packs during school closure due to Coronavirus – Class 8 (Year 6)
The children in year 6 should work through the SAT revision books that they already have. The expectation is that they do one page from each book each school day. We know the SATS tests have been cancelled, but this learning will keep them prepared for returning to school.
Class 8 also have a History project on WW2 that they can continue to complete.
