Well, what a strange half term that was! I can genuinely say that I could not be any more proud of the effort you have all put in over the past six weeks. Rewinding to Monday 4th January, all teachers were in their classrooms preparing for a normal teaching day the following day and I was looking forward to welcoming all 27 children back into the class to begin the second term of learning. By that evening, it was announced that we couldn't all return until after February Half Term at the earliest, which has of course now been put back to March 8th (to be confirmed). I am more than happy to admit that I wondered how home learning would go this time and how children would adapt to our MS Teams meetings twice a day and 1:1 meetings once per week. I shouldn't have worried! You have been absolutely brilliant: sharing ideas on the work set, asking sensible questions, helping each other out and growing in confidence when offering answers in a virtual situation. We have also had children in school, who deserve lots of praise too for their effort and commitment over the past six weeks. I hope that there has been some fun for all of you along the way and you have known where and how to ask for help if it has been needed. Every one of you deserves your well-earned rest over half term and I look forward to seeing you all online or in school on Monday 22nd February for more of the same! I cannot wait until we are all able to safely return to the classroom but, for now, I want to once again say a huge congratulations for your maturity, determination and sense of humour throughout these strange times - you have helped to keep me going when things have seemed a little bit bleak. Thank you 6R!

We have come to the end of the Autumn Term in Year Six and I am absolutely delighted with the progress, effort and behaviour of the children in 6R. It has been a very challenging term for the children after several months of not being in the classroom and I cannot speak highly enough of how the children have adapted to the circumstances they have found themselves in over the past four months. We have been able to do lots of PE, made fantastic progress in maths and English and have had lots of fun along the way. Thanks to all of the children and to you at home for your fantastic support this term - homework has been completed on time each week and it is clear to see that the children are receiving support at home, which makes my job much easier within the classroom. Have a fantastic Christmas and Happy New Year to you all.

As we come to the end of the second week in 6R, I would like to give huge praise to all of the pupils in the class for their effort and determination since returning to school, especially after nearly six months out of the classroom for most children. We have many new routines to get used to but the children have adapted to these superbly and have shown incredible consideration for the safety of everyone at Peterbrook. We have begun the teaching of curriculum subjects and next week will see a full return to our timetable, with guided reading and homework resuming. A letter with important information will be sent out next week and further documents will be added to our Year Six class page. Thank you so much to all children, parents and carers for your support while we adapt to a new routine within school. I look forward to ongoing learning and enjoyment within the classroom and will update this page on a regular basis.
