Mrs Dyde's Class 2018 - 2019

Mrs Dyde


Welcome back to our Spring Term 

Welcome back and a Happy New Year to you all. I hope you have all had a lovely Christmas Holiday and enjoyed spending time together. This term is going to be busy with lots of hard work along the way, preparing for our SAT's in May, however this does not mean that we will not be having fun and enjoying all that our varied curriculum has to offer. Our aim, whilst helping each of you achieve your potential, is that your last year in Highfields is a memorable one.  



This term, our next story topic will be based on the book, Journey to the River Sea by Eva Ibbotson. An exciting book, full of adventure through the Amazon Rainforest which will provide inspiration for our art work, written work, perhaps creating Rainforest Smoothies, adverts and jingles, possibly even with some judging by the Dragons, from our very own Dragon's Den.


Our Curriculum

Our Spring Curriculum planner provides you with  much more information on the range of exciting learning activities we have planned. You will be able to see a variety of ideas covering aspects from Science, Geography, Music, Art, RE, French, PSHE and ICT so please do take time to look at it. The link is included below.




This term PE will involve a range of invasion games. Please can you make sure that appropriate PE kit is in school every day of the week. To remind you this includes trainers, black tracksuit bottoms (with the school logo) or black shorts, yellow school t-shirt and a black or green school jumper. In some cases, a waterproof, or windproof coat may be beneficial.



Our PPA activities are now mixed, and therefore it is important that the children have the appropriate clothing with them each week for whichever activity they are involved in - this includes clothing for Forest School, (a complete change of clothes, preferably old, including jumpers, wellies, extra socks and a waterproof coat) and their usual PE kit.

We can’t escape them, and yes they are creeping closer, however, we will be doing our utmost to help your child be ready and fully prepared for them whilst still having plenty of exciting opportunities throughout the rest of their year.  


Water bottles

Please ensure your child brings their water bottle to school every day and that it is clearly identifiable.

If you have any questions relating to any aspect of school life, please do not hesitate in contacting me or coming to see me. Please feel free to come in at the beginning of the school day, (where possible before 8:45am to allow time for class preparation) or preferably at the end of the school day.
