Head of School
Welcome to Sparrowhawks Class!
Sparrow hawk Class is one of the Year 6 classes and our topics are Pollution and Our World, WW2 and Ancient Egypt. Our classroom ethos promotes the whole school values of Respect, Responsibility and Resilience and strive to help the children develop their independence over the year in preparation for their transition to secondary school. We will always encourage them to try their best and support each other, even when something is challenging.
We have a love of reading at our school. The children are encouraged to read as much as possible during the week and our expectation is that they read each evening and record this in their personal reading record, which will be checked each day. Additionally, we will be enjoying a range of novels in class during story time as well as allowing the children time throughout the school day to read for pleasure.
Our PE days are on Mondays (indoor) and Wednesdays (outdoor). This year, children will need to bring their P.E kits to school to get changed into. They will also need to bring a water bottle to school every day.
Mrs Clark will be in class Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, and Mrs Magrath will be in class Thursday and Friday. We are also joined by two teaching assistants: Mrs Savage and Mrs Hinchcliffe. If you have any further questions, please email BOTH Mrs Clark and Mrs Magrath, so we can keep consistency across the week.
As a class, we believe that hard work and resilience will ensure that everyone achieves to the best of their ability. Our classroom is one where every child’s work is valued, all ideas and opinions are encouraged, and the children are given the tools and support to work at their own level. We hope you will join us in encouraging your child to work hard and take pride in their work.
