Welcome to Class 7 2023/24. The Class will be taught by Miss McNeill and supported by Mrs Wearmouth. On a Wednesday afternoon, this class will be taught by Mrs Hannant and will be doing PE. Mrs Gilray will be teaching Re and Jigsaw on a Friday afternoon. There are 23 pupils in this class.
My name is Miss McNeill and I have been a teacher at Consett Junior School for 9 years, teaching in Year 6 for the last 7 years.
I love working at Consett Junior School as alongside helping children achieve their full potential, we have a big focus on making memories. Year 6 brings many special moments for our children, such as our residential to Robinwood, the Y6 sleepover and taking the lead of our amazing Christmas and summer shows. We aim to make the most of the children’s last year in junior school and provide them with memories to last a lifetime.
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 hard to meet all our targets but will still have lots of fun along the way!
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.
We will be starting the year off in English by basing our work around the book Wonder. Kindness is the main theme in Wonder. It helps us realise that a small, simple act of kindness can make a big difference, and we have the ability to choose kind.
Our weekly spelling test and reading diary check will be on a Friday morning.
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.
