Class Teacher – Miss Jago
Hello, I am Miss Jago. I love teaching all age groups and enjoy watching all of the children grow up and learn many new things as they move up through the school. I enjoy the outdoors and I have a horse called Indie and two dogs called Spruce and Willow. When I am not competing with Indie or walking the dogs I love to cook.

Welcome to Year 6
Just a short note to welcome you to Year Six and give you a little information about our forthcoming year. This year promises to be very exciting with many challenges and experiences to embrace.
Year Six with be taught predominantly by myself, with support from Miss Jago and other specialist teachers in PE, Music and French. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to speak to me whenever necessary.
This year there will be a focus on key skills together with mini topics and single subject-based lessons in preparation for transition to secondary school. Please encourage your child to talk about their learning at home and to bring in items of interest, linked to lessons, to share with the class.
Finally, thank you for your anticipated support this year. It is an extremely important year and daily attendance is vital to maximise learning and future opportunities. I am really looking forward to working in partnership
with yourselves and our children.
The following points outline some of the important routines that should help us all to have a smooth-running year;
Reading – Please ensure your child reads for 30 minutes every night. Reading is a skill which needs to be developed with regular practice so your support with this is invaluable. If possible spend time asking your child questions on what they have read to further their comprehension – notes on how to develop KS2 reading comprehension and suggested questions can be found in the front of the pupil planner. Also, please ensure that their reading books and planners come to school everyday to enable further practise and for planners to be checked to ensure daily reading homework is recorded and completed.
Homework – In Year 6 homework consists of daily reading, spelling lists and maths facts to learn and additional English and Maths activities. These additional activities will be given out on a Wednesday to be completed and returned the following Thursday.
New spelling lists, and maths facts are given out over the week to be learnt ready for a test on the following Monday. Test scores are recorded in the pupil planner each week to inform parents of their child’s performance and progress, please sign weekly.
Currently children have daily structured PE sessions. At present they do not require a school PE kit, but must wear suitable shoes everyday.
