J.R.R Tolkien Class

Year 6 are a fantastic, responsible and mature team aught by Mrs Pye with Miss Hall as our Teaching Assistant. We are taught by Mrs Anstice on a Friday afternoon and for an hour on Mondays or Wednesdays. We are enjoying all the extra responsibilities which come along as part of being in Year Six. We have many jobs including Team Captains, Road Safety Officers, School Councillors, Sound technicians, Register monitors, Playleaders, Singing Leaders, Sports and RE Ambassadors.... We enjoy spending time with our buddies in Reception. We would love to show you around our class, and our school as we are very knowledgeable guides. Welcome to Middle Earth, the home of the Hobbit.
