The Dynamic Deers - Year 6
Welcome to The Dynamic Deers Year 6 webpage for 2022 - 2023. Miss Twigg, Mrs Najib and myself look forward to teaching your child in Year 6 throughout the year. Miss House will also be teaching the children on a Tuesday morning.
Please click on the links below to find out information about our class and keep looking at this page to see images of what we have been learning in school.
During the first half of the spring term, we will be having PE on both a Monday and Tuesday morning. For both of these days, the children should come to school wearing their PE kit. (Please see the PE kit letter on the Year 6 letter section for more guidance on this).
A parents' meeting regarding the May SATs will be held within the first few weeks of term. Please look out for information about this on Parenthub. Also, details of the SATs booster groups will also be sent out during the first few weeks of term.
If you would like to speak with me, please feel free to chat to me on the playground at the end of the day. Alternatively, you can contact me using the following email address: Deer@willington.derbyshire.sch.uk Class Dojo will no longer be used as a communication tool as it was during the period of COVID-19 lockdown. Information about your child and the class will be sent out on Parenthub.
Please also take time to click on the updated online safety helpsheet page and discuss any relevant sheets and topics with your child.

The link below shows a document which you may wish to download and discuss with your child at home regarding what to do if they see online bullying or if it happens to them. It is a flowchart which can be used to help the child to make the correct decision if they see this situation online.
