Opal Class - Year 6

Welcome to Opal Class

Hi, I'm Mrs Smallshaw, Class Teacher and Assistant Headteacher, and I have one of the best jobs in the world!  (Well, I believe so). I like our classroom to be a space for practical, co-operative and investigative learning, and children are encouraged to ask lots of questions.  I love to read and hope to encourage and inspire children to find books and authors that they love too.  I also enjoy leading our school Worship Group and Netball Team.  

Mrs Shaw, our Teaching Assistant, supports the children with their learning every morning.  She works with groups and individuals in our Reading, Maths, Spelling  and English lessons.  

Mrs Melling and Mrs Noble also work in our classroom to support children with their learning.  Mrs Howell-Jones and Mrs Shaw teach in our class on a Tuesday.  

If you ever have any questions, feel free to contact me: 

'Let all that you do, be done with Love'

1 Corinthians 16:14 

This is our class Bible quote that we regularly use and make reference to throughout the day.  The children can articulate its meaning and explain how we should put it into action.




I Can't do it... YET!  

This is our learning motto and something we regularly discuss in the classroom.  It fits perfectly with our Growth Mindset ethos, as we strive to build and develop our Learning Powers.  We often talk about The Learning Pit and the different emotions we feel when we are in it.  In our lessons, children are encouraged to enter the Learning Pit and demonstrate Resilience.  They also strive to be Resourceful and Reflective, and show Reciprocity.
