Dear Parents and Carers,
Welcome back - and it has been so lovely to see the class back in person again this week! They have been really pleased to see each other and everyone has settled back into routines really well. As you will know from the newsletter, we have had a very exciting Science week: focusing upon NASAs recent Mars mission and the Perseverance Rover. Please see the link below to our SWAY diary: we hope that you enjoy it!
Next week, we will be continuing our work on 'The Silver Sword', looking at character portraits and summarising the narrative so far. We shall also have a writing assessment on Friday. In Maths, we will be looking at ratio and scale factors and continuing our work on volume. We shall also be focusing upon what life was like in Warsaw during WWII in History and thinking about nationality in our Geography lessons.
Have a really good weekend, and enjoy the sunshine!
Dr Tara Wilson and the Year 6 Team.

Hello Berkshire 5,
My name is Dr Wilson and I am going to be your Year 6 teacher next academic year. I am very much looking forward to meeting you all in September, getting to know each of you as individuals, and having the opportunity to work with you, and to support your learning journey for what will be your final year in primary school. It is going to be a very exciting year with lots of fun and creative things to do as we work together to ensure that we are all ready for secondary school.
As some of you may know, I am new to Southborough Primary School. I have been a teacher for 23 years: for 18 of those years, I taught in a very large 3-form entry school in East London. I then worked abroad for 4 years, in an international school in Moscow. Last year, I moved very far north and taught in a very small primary school in Aberdeen, Scotland. I love being a teacher for many, many reasons! One reason is that I love having the opportunity to work as a team: to all work together, to share our learning together, and to solve problems together in order to be the very best that we can be! I believe passionately in a growth mindset, and in working towards a goal. The journey may not always be easy but I believe that the journey counts just as much as getting to the final destination. My promise to you as your class teacher next year is that I will be fair, supportive, compassionate, honest, and that you will be as ready for secondary school as you can possibly be. I am also looking forward to learning more about your hobbies. My hobbies include reading, playing musical instruments, cycling, climbing mountains and travelling.
I look forward to speaking to you all over the phone on Tuesday 21st July
