In Year 6 our teacher is Miss Thompson (who is also our Maths and ICT Coordinator). We also have the support of Miss Segger and Mrs Shortreed, who work mornings. Miss Segger also works specifically to offer extra support for mathematics during the afternoon sessions. With all the extra support, we try to make sure all the pupils achieve their full potential.
We are very lucky to have a brand new classroom that is full of bright furniture, complete with a new interactive whiteboard, laptop and 10 iPads! We have our own ‘Starbooks’ coffee shop themed reading area, separate learning area outside the classroom, lockers and even our own toilet and changing room.Curriculum

Children experience a real theatre with proper lighting and sound equipment, including wireless head mics. The infamous Helen Howard supports the dance choreography and pupils have opportunities to perform solo singing roles too. We have performed the following plays to date:
