Welcome to Year 6!
Class Teachers - Miss McCrystal & Mrs Diaz
Teaching Assistants - Mrs Ambrose
What an exciting term we have ahead of us! We start the new term with our SATS preparation and information about this can be found below. If easier, please watch the attached video which gives further information. The children have completed a lot of work to help them to prepare for their SATS and all of the teachers are extremely proud of all of the efforts the children have put in.
During the term, we will also be reading 'Holes' by Louis Sachar and a range of Shakespeare's works that link with our foundation subject topics. After the success of the previous terms, we will also be having focused Art and Design Technology weeks which the children will really enjoy.
With this being the children's last year in primary school, everyone at St William of York wants to make this last term as special as possible for the children. We have a lot to look forward to; treats and rewards for all of our hard work, our leaver's assembly and much more! So keep your eyes and ears open for more information on this.
If you have any questions or queries about anything, please do not hesitate to contact us.
