Miss Taylor Class 15

Welcome to Class 15

Welcome to Class 15’s webpage!

Hi, my name is Miss Taylor and I am Class 15’s teacher. In Class 15, children are also supported by Mrs Jones, Mrs Cosh and Mrs Gruszczynska.


Year 6’s topic for the Autumn term will be Community and Belonging – you can find out more information by clicking the ‘Autumn 2021 Topic’ star link below.


The School Day:

  • Children can be dropped off between 8.45 and 9.00am, gates will be locked at 9.00am, pupils arriving after this time will be required to go through the office and will be recorded as late.
  • Pick up time will be 3.00pm to 3.15pm. Children left behind after 3.15pm may be asked to join After School Club and a charge will be applied.
  • Please continue to follow the one-way system in place to avoid bottlenecks at gates.
  • Each day the children need a coat, water bottle and packed lunch if they are not having a school dinner.
  • Suitable footwear – every day we will encourage the children to take part in the daily mile or other physical activities, so they need comfortable, safe footwear to do so.
  • Slippers can be left in school for children to change into.
  • All children need to have wellies and waterproofs in school, to protect their school uniform, to take part in outdoor learning which will be timetabled on a regular basis.
  • All uniform including outdoor clothing needs to be named.


PE days:

  • All pupils need to bring an appropriate PE Kit on their allocated PE days.  Class 15 will do PE on a Tuesday and a Friday. 
  • Track suit for outdoor winter games.
  • Plain black shorts/cycling shorts or leggings.
  • A school Royal Blue short or long sleeved T-shirt which can be purchased via the school website/ uniform shop or a plain blue or white top can be worn.
  • Training shoes suitable for outdoor games on the field and playground.
  • Swimming costume / trunks and towel - lightweight, long sleeve t shirts and leggings can be worn if necessary, for religious/cultural reasons.
  • A PE bag with the school logo is issued to every child when they start school to keep all PE clothes together.
  • No football shirts/strips should be worn and clothing should not have large brand names on them.



Reading and Learning at home:

  • Reading – Children must aim to read every day at home–we recomeend at least ten minutes per day. However, the more a child reads at home, the more progress they will make. If an adult is unable to listen to their child read at home, Year 6 pupils can independently record their reading into their diary. Dojos will be given for each diary entry that is recorded into their diary.
  • Maths and spelling activities to be shared weekly by Dojo. This will commence the week beginning 20th September.
  • Here are some useful websites:

if you child has lost their TTRockstars login, please let Mr Walker know and he will send out a new one.



ParentPay can be used to pay school meals and for any other trips / visits that are planned in school.


ParentPay is also used to give permission for activities beyond the daily curriculum offer, including for trips, visitors or other enrichment activities.


If you need any help or support setting up your ParentPay account please contact the team in the office who will be happy to help.



Keeping in touch:

We will continue to use Dojo as a way of keeping in touch. 


We will do our best to respond in a timely manner but please bear in mind that during the school day we are focused on teaching and learning with your children, and we do not monitor Dojo throughout the evening.


If you have an urgent request/message, please contact the team in the office.

Good evening!

Please support your child to complete the activities and we will work on any problems back in school.
