Class Teacher – Mrs Kernick
Hello, my name is Mrs Kernick and I love the challenging but highly rewarding nature of teaching.
In my spare time, I enjoy tap dancing and I am a fully qualified dance teacher. I love to play and watch all kinds of sports, like badminton, tennis and football. When I am at home, I like to bake and take my dog Jasper out for long walks in the countryside.

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.
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 Tuesday to be completed and returned the following Monday. This additional homework supports the transition to secondary school.
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.
