We are now able to share with you all who your child’s class teacher will be in their next academic year.
Children in current year 5 have been mixed for year 6, this is mainly to support friendship groups but also to prepare the children for changes when they leave our school at the end of year 6, even if children go to the same secondary school, they will not be to be grouped the way they are now. We feel it is our responsibility to prepare our children for these changes.
Children in current Year 5 will be sent a school text to state who their new teacher will be. Once received can you please discuss this with your child. The classes have been significantly changed but this has been a sensitive process with current year 5 staff working closely with Year 6 and the SLT.
Children in years 3 and 4 will remain in their current class groups and will move as a class to their next teacher, see below:
Year 3 Class 1 – Will become Class 4 with Miss Thompson (supported by Miss Wilson)
Year 3 Class 2 – Will become Class 3 with Mr Meadows and Mrs Taylor (supported by Miss Oselton and Miss Wilson)
Year 4 Class 3 – Will become Class 5 with Miss Breheny (supported by Mrs Wood)
Year 4 Class 4 – Will become Class 6 with our newly appointed teacher, Miss Clarey (supported by Mrs Hird)
Year 5 Class 5 – Text will determine Miss Waters (supported by Mrs Gilray and Mrs Hannant) or Miss McNeill (supported by Mrs Shield)
Year 5 Class 6 – Text will determine Miss Waters (supported by Mrs Gilray and Mrs Hannant) or Miss McNeill (supported by Mrs Shield)
The new year 3 children’s teachers will remain as Mrs McMahon, Miss White and Miss Hughes (supported by Miss Atkinson and Miss Lynch).
In September Mr Moore will be leading and teaching Science across years 4 to 6.
Unfortunately, we are not able to offer our children a move up day before the end of term, as we are not able to safely support our bubbles in doing so. However, current years 3 to 5 will spend the first two days of the new term doing transition activities as they would have done on a move up day. This means the full curriculum will not start until Monday 6th September.
