Welcome to Succeed Class - Year 6
"Success is not final; failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts." (Winston Churchill)
Welcome to Year 6 - Succeed Class. We have 28 children in Succeed class this year - a mixture of Year 5 and Year 6, all striving to achieve their own personal goals. I, Miss Fleming, am the Year 6 teacher and alongside myself will be Ms Brown as our class' Teaching Assistant. We will be joined in the afternoon by Miss Milner and we all share the same goal - to guide, to support, to learn, to laugh and to ensure that memories are made. We are looking forward to the exciting, and hard-working, journey ahead!
Now that the children are in Year 6, they will have many responsibilities around the school such as: leading by example as school role models to the younger children; taking the lead with School Council; participating as senior members of the GIFT Team; supporting younger children in reception with key reading skills; demonstrating sound knowledge of Internet Safety as members of the Internet Warriors; assisting within whole school assemblies; and representing the school at the various sporting competitions that we will be participating in throughout the year. It is sure to be a busy year!
We have an action packed year of learning planned for the children, beginning with an exciting journey into the Nowhere Emporium! Here, we aim to provide the children with an exciting and engaging start to their year which aims to build and expand upon the previous years' learning, whilst incorporating current year objectives. We will then move onto explore WW2 turning points in British History; discovering our local environments through our 'Coasts' topic in Geography; finding out about the ancient civilisation of Baghdad; learning how important Greek History was to our own language and society; discovering the history of evolution through science and exploring the dangers and delights of the Amazon. All of this, as well as preparing for our SAT's and the not-to-be-missed end of year musical production, which is always a highlight in the children's calendar!
Your child's well-being is of vital importance to us and we want to ensure that they are happy and progressing. If you ever have any queries, questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me via my staff email: firstname.lastname@example.org
