Year 6

Hi, my name’s Miss Barnard and I am the Year 6 teacher.  I love teaching an engaging and creative curriculum at Shobnall Primary School and providing all pupils with a range of fun learning experiences, from theme days to school trips!  Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my friends and family, travelling across the world, going to the gym and exploring new places to walk with my dog, Hugo! 

Mrs Barrow, Miss Lord, Mrs Leedham, Mrs Ghent and Mr Stevens will also be working with us this year!

Key Information

Please  ensure  your  child  brings  their  reading  book  and  reading  diary  to  school each day. They will also have a peg for their coat and P.E kit. As space in the cloakroom is limited, we would be grateful if P.E. kits could be kept in a small drawstring bag which fits onto the peg. Please ensure your child has a water bottle with them every day, but please can I remind you that we only allow water rather than squash or flavoured water.

For homework, we ask that the children read for at least 10 minutes every night, and talk about the books they are reading as this will support enjoyment, fluency and understanding. In addition, there will be some spellings to practice and learn. There will also be a piece of English OR Maths homework set every Friday and collected by the teacher the following Wednesday. After Christmas, to help the children prepare for SATs, we will also be giving them past papers to complete to help with revision and test technique skills.

P.E. will be on Mondays. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, P.E will be taught outside as much as is possible in smaller groups. Children will need to come to school in their kit on their allocated day. An outdoor kit should consist of jogging bottoms, a sweatshirt and trainers. For health and safety, children who wear earrings should have these removed on P.E. days.

In the morning, children in Years 6 will be dropped off at the bottom of the ramp on the KS2 playground where they will be greeted by a member of staff. If  you  would  like  to  speak  to  your  child’s  class  teacher, please inform the teacher on the door and any messages will be passed on, or an appointment made if necessary.  At the end of the day children in these classes will collect their coats and meet adults on the playground. Year 6 pupils will be dismissed from their classroom fire exit.
