Welcome to our class page! My name is Mr. Tyrrell and I am a Year 6 teacher at Silver Springs Primary Academy.
This is my second year at Silver Springs. Before I began this job, I spent six years as a secondary school English teacher, working with over 100 pupils each day. Last year, when I moved into primary teaching, I was lucky enough to spend every day working with the world's most wonderful Year 5 class. This year, I am even luckier, as I have moved with my class into Year 6! It's going to be another fantastic year.
In Y6T, we believe in kindness, and listening to each other. There are no outsiders here! We do our best to be positive, and we always aim to have a growth mindset. We look out for each other all the time!
If you are a parent of a child in Y6T, please make sure you are signed up to the Class Dojo app, and try to check it every day. On Class Dojo, you can track your child's achievements. You can also see photos of what we get up to in the classroom every day. Moreover, you can contact me directly if ever you have any questions or concerns. I will always be glad to hear from you, and to offer my support.
In order to boost your child's learning at home, you can help them with their weekly homework tasks, which will be sent home every Friday and collected on Monday mornings at school. You can help them to learn their weekly spellings, and practise their times tables with them. Perhaps most importantly of all, it will be of huge benefit to your child if you are able to read with them every day!
