Welcome to 6JM!
Having had a very unusual year, we are looking forward to welcoming our new year 6. We can't wait to finally meet you all properly and get to know you. Although things may seem a little strange and different at first, don't worry as we are sure you will soon settle in and embrace the fun and exciting year we have planned for you all.
Our exciting new topic this term is called 'Time Travel' and it focuses on the shoe making industry in Wellingborough. As part of this topic, we design our own shoe factories, make shoe dolls and sew baby booties.
We are looking forward to delivering a rich and varied curriculum with plenty of fun. We will also spend time reflecting on your well-being, feelings and emotions after such a long time spent away from school to ensure that everyone feels safe and happy to be back. You may start to think about what secondary school you would like to attend during this first term and you may get the chance to visit some with your families.
The staffing is as follows:
6JM - Monday/Tuesday - Mrs Jenny May
Wednesday/Thursday/Friday - Mrs Jen McMahon
Teaching assistant - Miss Maria Cooper
6VdB - Mrs Vanessa DeBoer
Teaching assistant - Mrs Ashley Howes
Group teacher - Mrs Mel Montgomery
Teaching assistant - Miss Di Camus
In the mornings, the year group will be divided into 3 groups for Maths and English. This allows for all the children to work in smaller groups and have focused teaching allowing them to reach their full potential. Their teacher will depend on the group they are in. This arrangement also allows the children to get used to being taught by different teachers in different classrooms which is great preparation for secondary school.
Outdoor PE will be on a Tuesday and Wednesday. It is important the children wear their PE kits to school on these days. A tracksuit is advisable for colder weather. Sturdy footwear (trainers) are also important to keep the children safe.
Homework is now given out at the beginning of each term and is handed in on a specific date towards the end. Information on homework dates including, homework check days and final handing in day will be given when the homework is first set. The children are expected to have completed enough homework tasks each term to earn 40 points, ensure the homework is returned on time and completed to a high standard.
If there are any queries please don't hesitate to contact Mrs May or Mrs McMahon through the office.
