Year 6Mrs Douglas
We are in Year 6. Our teacher is Mrs Douglas and our teaching assistants are Mrs Johnson, Mrs Bullerwell and Mrs Foley.
In Year 6, we prepare ourselves for secondary school through an exciting and lively curriculum. However learning doesn’t just happen in the classroom; we go on lots of exciting visits to understand first hand how people live and the changing world around us.
As we are the oldest children in school, it is important that we are good role models to the younger children. We love spending time with our ‘Special Friends’ in Reception helping them to learn and grow.
