Welcome to the class 12 page!  Our teacher is Mr McMurtry and our Learning Support Assistants are Miss Troy and Miss Cox.


Home Learning During Absence

If your child is absent from school, please find below a variety of resources to support home learning across the curriculum. Some of these suggest printing but most can be completed on paper. (For example, with the art shading activities, instead of printing, you can just copy and draw your own objects to shade.)

I hope that you find these resources/activities useful. Please let me know if there are any additional resources you require or anything you believe would benefit your child during their absence.

Thank you and take care,

Mr McMurtry

We hope you find all the information that you need here.

During the autumn term, we will be swimming on Tuesday afternoon and we will have a PE lesson on a Monday afternoon.  Remember your kits for these days.

Your child will need to read at least four times a week and have their diary signed.  Remember to bring your diary in each day.

Homework projects are set throughout the year. Children are also encouraged to use their account on TT Rock Stars to master their times tables.


Extra Information:

Please see our curriculum pages for more information about what your child will be learning in the different areas of the curriculum this year.

If parents or carers ever want to discuss anything regarding their child’s happiness and/or progress, never hesitate to speak to Mr McMurtry or Miss Troy. We also check diaries daily, so can address any concerns you may have in this way, if you do not get chance to catch us!

Here is an overview of what we will be learning this year.  Please have a look at our curriculum pages for a more detailed look at the Northcote Curriculum.
