Hello I am Mrs Lewis, the teacher in Class 6. Mrs Davies is our teaching assistant. PE will be taught by Miss Miles every Monday afternoon, Music will be taught by Mrs Haynes and Madame Hanscomb will continue to teach French every Wednesday afternoon.
When I am not teaching my lovely class, I can sometimes be found time travelling with my two dogs (or ‘doglets’ as I tend to call them) in the Tardis that I keep parked at the bottom of the garden. However, it is with deep sadness I must confess that it does not seem surprisingly bigger on the inside. If the Tardis is ‘out of order’, then whenever I am able to grab the chance, I am off on more local travels in my tent – again with my well-travelled ‘doglets’…
In my spare time, I like to bake cakes – although I hasten to add these are not in the same league as Mary Berry’s cakes. Due to my very basic baking skills, my cakes make very few appearances in the staffroom at school. I also like to ‘potter’ about in my garden, but again I am a bit of a novice!
This year the children have interesting topics to cover. They will be learning about life in Britain during the Stone Age, and later in the year ancient Egypt – these have great opportunities for trips, dressing up, DT and art. The term will ‘Blast Off’ with a trip to the Avebury Stone Circle, where we will have a guided tour of the stones and visit the museum. As well as working hard towards the SATs in May, the children have plenty to look forward to in the coming terms – including numerous sports festivals and competitions, educational trips, Bikeability and, of course, the five day residential trip in June to Rockley. Everyone has been given a ‘buddy’ in Class R and the children are already doing a fantastic job of helping Class R settle into Ramsbury School.
The last year in primary school is a very challenging and exciting experience for the children. The children will be building on the skills they learnt in Class 5 and becoming even more independent in their work to prepare them for the next step in their ‘learning journey’. The qualities we encourage at Ramsbury are: resilience, responsibility, readiness, reflection and resourcefulness. These can all be demonstrated in their weekly homework tasks.
If you have any questions or concerns, then please come and speak to me in the playground before or after school and I will try my very best to help.
