Welcome to Year 6 / Badger Class!
Class Teacher - Miss Beckett
Teaching Assistants - Mrs Forbes and Mr Boughton
It's been three weeks and everyone has settled into Year 6 life really well. This term has already been busy, children have taken the Kent Test and we have voted for Head Boy / girl and the deputies. Next week we will be looking at voting for our House Captains and School council representatives.
This year we will have a push on independence as we get children ready for secondary school.
If you ever have any questions please feel free to speak to the office or find us in the playground.
We are looking forward to a great year and watching you all grow. Let's make the last year of primary school a lot of fun!
Miss Beckett, Mrs Forbes and Mr Boughton.
For Term 1 PE will be on a Friday. Can children come to school dressed in appropriate PE kit every Friday unless stated.
Would I have enjoyed being a WW2 evacuee?
During terms 1 and 2 we will be learning about WW2. For our curriculum we will learn about what caused WW2, why children were evacuated, mapping out all of the countries involved, looking at rationing and much more I hope we can fit it all in. In October we will be visiting the Battle of Britain memorial and learning about the local history.
