Class 6 2020 - 2021

Mrs Eddie

Welcome to Year Six!

Class Information

There are 28 children in Year Six and the class teacher is Mrs Eddie.  Mrs Worth, Ms Lewis and Mrs De Ruiter also help us with our learning.

Year 6 is an exciting time when the children are finally the eldest pupils in the school.  There are many things to look forward to, such as: having a Reception Buddy, sitting on chairs in assembly, receiving the Friendship Award from Mr Norris, the end of year production, going on trips and residentials, Leavers' Hoodies…

Despite Covid-19 causing a different way of working at school, we are determined to make all of these things happen!
