Welcome Year 6, Class of 2023
Apologies to parents who have been spooked by our greeting... can you believe that this academic year is your child's last at Leasowes? I hope they are as excited for this year as we are! On this page, we will share important dates and information for reference throughout the year, as well as celebrating the fantastic learning happening in Year 6.
Year 6 Staff Team:
Miss C Reeves (6CR Class Teacher and Upper Key Stage 2 Phase Leader)
Mr A Rock (6AR Class Teacher)
Mrs F Armitage (6AR Teaching Assistant)
Mrs M Rowell (6CR Teaching Assistant)
Miss L Batten (Teaching Assistant)
Mr B Coombs (Maths Teacher)
Coming Soon... Writing Celebration 2023
Every September, Leasowes kicks off another fantastic year of progress by participating in a whole-school writing celebration. This year, Miss Reeves has chosen Hom by Jeanne Willis, illustrated by Paddy Donnelly. This heartwarming tale of friendship follows an unnamed narrator as he makes the best of being shipwrecked on a desert island. There, he meets Hom: a create who is 'a lot more alike [to me] than different'. Across the first eight days of Year 6, we will be digging into this text to retrieve our reading and writing skills, as well as using it as some fabulous inspiration for artwork - perhaps we have another Paddy Donnelly among us! We cannot wait to share what we get up to here and on our Leasowes Twitter page @LeasowesPrimary. By our Autumn Term parents evening (see below for dates) we will have display boards both in our UKS2 corridor and the KS2 hall to celebrate our amazing work.
Meet the Teacher meetings - Tuesday 13th September
Please note that differently to the rest of the school, Y6 will hold only one Meet the Teacher presentation. This will be in the Key Stage 1 Hall starting at 5:15pm and will last around 45 minutes to allow us to conduct the usual Meet the Teacher presentation followed by a short presentation concerning the Y6 residential to Condover Hall. We encourage parents with more than one child at Leasowes to attend the younger child's year group presentations in the 4:30pm slot first. Thank you for your flexibility.
