Hello, my name is Miss Clancy and I am the Year 6 Teacher at St Joseph's, as well as being the Key Stage 2 Leader.

Myself, and the children, are also supported by Mrs Curry.

As you will know by now, I absolutely love teaching Year 6, and so cannot wait to get started on this year’s journey.

I am looking forward to the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead of us; both Mrs Curry and I, alongside
Year 6, will continue to work hard to achieve our full potential. I know we will have a very successful year!

If you have any concerns about the progress of your child, please feel free come in and have a chat with me.

Just a few updates:


Homework will be given out regularly this year. Usually, homework will be sent out on a Friday and will be due back in, the following Wednesday.
As mentioned during our Curriculum Meeting, towards SATs, homework will become more frequent. I will notify you of this closer to the time.



PE will take place on a Wednesday; however, as you know we are partial to some spontaneous PE, to reward extra hard work, so PE kits should be in school at all times.



I cannot stress the importance of reading in Year 6 - it holds the key to success in every subject. Please encourage your child to explore all genres of text, it doesn’t have to be their school reading book.  It is an expectation that children read at least three times per week; please remember to sign your child’s journal when you have read alongside them or seen them reading alone. During lessons, children will have lots of opportunities to read, and enjoy books, throughout the week at school and reading is supported by daily Guided Reading sessions.


Our Theme Topic for the Autumn Term will be ‘Who were the Ancient Egyptians?’

Statutory Assessment Tests


As you know, Year 6 is a very important year for your child. Please try your best to encourage regular and punctual attendance, and full participation in all homework activities.

A little later in the year regular SATs revision sessions will be available. Attendance is not compulsory, but it will certainly help to prepare your child for the tests in May. Please look out for the letter that will be coming your way soon.

Throughout the year, pupil progress is monitored very closely to ensure all children achieve the very best they can. Last Year, St. Joseph’s achieved incredible results, and so we have the same expectations and high standards this year. Please continue to support your child with their revision, and help them by ensuring they follow a regular bed time routine, receive plenty of sleep and a hearty breakfast.

If you have any concerns about the progress of your child, please feel free come in and have a chat with me.
