Year 6 is one of my favourite year groups to teach, not only because of the amazing progress you see in the children both academically and personally, but because of the amazing personalities I'm lucky enough to surround myself with everyday! I love to encourage the children to take responsibility for their own learning - to determine how, when and where they learn best and to provide opportunities for this within my classroom.
Assistant Headteacher for KS2 and Class Teacher
Hi everyone! My name is Mrs Spalding (Before you get too confused... I was Miss Nixon but got married this summer) I am really excited to be part of the Year 6 team this year. I will be teaching PE on Mondays and am looking forward to getting heart rates raised whilst working on the key skills required in both dance and gymnastics. On Fridays I will be teaching PSHE and life skills. I am really looking forward to getting stuck into some deep and meaningful conversations.
I am passionate about the Arts which I love bringing to all areas of the curriculum. I will be teaching Year 6 on a Tuesday afternoon every week. We will be exploring great works of art and looking at how Maths, writing and even spelling can be inspired by pictures and photographs. We will also be creating our own master pieces... watch this space!
I'm very excited to be teaching in Year 6 this year and am looking forward to all the amazing things that we will be doing. I will be teaching Science to both classes and can't wait to help extend the children's inquisitive natures and hone their investigative skills further.
