Year 6 2018 - 2019

Mrs Higginson

Welcome back to your second term as Year 6.


As most of you will already know (although we do keep slipping back to Miss Blake) my name is Mrs Higginson and I'm the Year 6 teacher for this year. I will be supported throughout the year by Miss Evans, Miss Stanley and Mrs Edwards - our fantastic Teaching Assistants!

Afternoon Sessions:

PE lessons will be taught on a Wednesday afternoon by Miss Preugschat - so remember those PE kits. Over the term, you will be looking at netball and health and fitness and you will continue to have cricket sessions led by a Cheshire coach. You will also continue to have the chance to participate in competitions. 

Mrs Edwards will teach you on a Monday afternoon and also for an hour on a Tuesday and Friday afternoon - when she will cover subjects such as Music, French, RE and Topic. During the other hour on a Friday afternoon, you will also have Miss Mathison (our Year 5 Teacher) who will be delivering P4C (Philosophy 4 Children).

This term our topic will be about The Great War. We will start by looking at how it all began and then move onto how the conflict affected different groups of people.

Homework, Spellings and Reading

Like last term, there will be two pieces of homework a week. Both homeworks will be handed out on a Friday and will be due in the following Wednesday. Occasionally, we may give out a piece of homework that lasts for a longer period of time, such as a mini-project. If the homework days ever change, you will be notified of the due in date.

Spelling lists will be glued in to the Learning Logs and also uploaded to the website for each half term. These are to be practised at home throughout the week.

As always, reading is the cornerstone of all learning. We recommend reading a wide range of texts at home and at school. Although many of you are reading longer ‘chapter books’, you should still be aiming to change your book as often as possible.

So, let’s get ready for a fantastic year ahead!

We are now well and truly the oldest children in the school so let’s show everyone how fantastic we are and be fantastic DREAM TEAM role models!
