'Unlocking Potential'

Year 6

 Hello everyone and welcome to our class page.

Our class teacher is Mr Newton but Mrs Johnson and Miss Gomersall support us (and him) with our learning everyday too. 
Due to the pandemic, most of us are currently at home using Microsoft Teams to help us learn remotely. Each morning, we need to log on to Teams and see what assignments Mr Newton has set us for the day. 
A typical day consists of some arithmetic questions to get our brains working, a maths lesson, an English lesson and then a lesson from the wider curriculum (e.g. science, history, art, etc.) We need to complete a couple of TTR sessions and Reading Plus texts each day too. Once we have completed an assignment, Mr Newton insists we take a photo of our learning and attach it when handing-in so that he can see what we've been up to and provide some feedback.
Of course, we'd all rather be in the classroom together but we are where we are and have been using this opportunity to further develop our growth mindsets, showing great resilience, perseverance and determination. Our teachers are telephoning home every week to check up on us and are of course there for us if we need them - we can either contact Mr Newton directly on Teams or telephone the main school office to leave a message.
For now, all we can do is stay safe and keep working hard!
