My name is Miss Waters and I am Deputy Headteacher and SENCO at Consett Junior School. I have been a teacher for 12 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 friends, family and Nala, my cat.
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 focusing on the text ‘Wonder’. If any of the children want to get a head start they could watch the film!
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.
*UPDATE* Variation due to swimming sessions
We will begin our swimming programme with Year 4 and Year 6. It is organised so that only one class swims at a time. The sessions will commence next week, Tuesday 7th and Wednesday 8th September.
Year 6 children will swim on a Wednesday afternoon. Class 7 – 1.05 p.m. to 1.50 p.m. Class 6 – 2.05 p.m to 2.50 p.m. Year 6 must still come in wearing their PE kits on Wednesdays.
