Welcome to Year 6
Dear Year 6,
Welcome, the first thing I wish to say is so many congratulations to you on reaching your final year at primary school. You should feel immensely proud of yourselves that you are now the top of St Peters School.
I feel very privileged to be your teacher this year and I am extremely excited about the year ahead and so looking forward to sharing the journey of this coming year with you.
This year will bring you so many opportunities to shine and feel enormously successful. I have very high expectations of you and I want you to have very high expectations of your own selves too. As your teacher I will always aim to work the hardest I can for you and I will always expect this of you as I know you will aim to be the best that you can be.
Reaching your targets and aiming high is vital. At times this may feel scary and sometimes frustrating especially if you become stuck and not sure what to do. Just remember we all learn differently and therefore have different learning needs. A key aspect of successful learning is to know and understand how we learn and knowing what to do if we become unsure and puzzled by something. This year we will develop different Learning Powers which will support you with your learning for the year ahead and the next part of your learning journey at Secondary School.
Above all I want to be happy at school, to be excellent Year Six role models, to feel proud of your achievements, to make great progress and attain the highest standards you can – To be successful.
I look forward to learning with you this year…
Important months to remember:
September: 11+ exams
