Welcome to Peake class!
My name is Miss Mack and I teach in Year 6 with support from Mrs Lloyd. In Peake we are also lucky enough to have a coach from Get Active teaching PE and Miss Hicks teaching PSHE.
In our class we always aspire to do our best, working in a classroom as a team, where all adults and children alike respect each other. Peake class are hardworking, determined and resilient learners. We aim to work both together and independently, to be the best that we can be, supporting the school vision and upholding our school values. We take pride in ourselves, our work and our learning while having lots of fun along the way!

Year 6 Updates
Year 6 are given weekly homework that is set on a Monday and handed back in for marking on Thursday. This consists of an English activity and a Maths activity. The children are also given weekly spellings to learn, which are tested on a Wednesday. Children are expected to read every day and make a comment in their reading diary. This should be handed in every day.
How you can help
Please continue to support your child by encouraging them to read widely and frequently. They should also be discussing their reading with an adult on a regular basis.
Ensuring that your child is fluent with their multiplication tables is also incredibly beneficial for them. There are lots of ways that these facts can be practised; chanting, singing, games, apps, web sites or simply writing them out.
