Welcome to Year 6.
'As God's family we aspire to love, grow, learn and achieve beyond our dreams.'
The pride of St. Paul's.
We are a team in Year 6 and the children are the forefront of this vision.
My name is Mr. Turner and I am the Year 6 class teacher.
We have an amazing team in Year 6 as Miss Austin, Mrs Slater and Miss Halleron support us in our learning.
Each child at St. Paul's looks up to the children in Year 6, which is why we expect the highest standards of behaviour and achievement.
In Year 6, we always try to do our best throughout school.
We work hard and put 100% in to everything we do.
