Mrs Dyde's Class 2018 - 2019

Mrs Dyde


Welcome to the Summer Term 

Welcome back.  I hope you have all had a lovely Easter Holiday and especially enjoyed the fantastic weather we have had over the Easter Bank Holiday weekend. Well this is it - the final term for Year 6. The term, as always, is going to be busy beginning with our preparation for the SAT's in May, however this does not mean that we will not continue to have fun and enjoy all that our varied curriculum has to offer. Our aim, whilst helping each of you achieve your potential, is that your last year and now last term in Highfields is a memorable one.  



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


We will also begin the Summer Term by exploring Narrative Writing and take a dive into two other books - The Explorer by Katherine Rundell and Survivors by David Long. We will be tempting the children with the initial start of some stories to see where their wonderful imaginations will take them- an adventure of their own.


Our Curriculum 

The Summer Curriculum planner will provide you with 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. 

We also have the excitement of Menai to look foward to, as well as the Highfields Music Festival. As the term draws to a close we will also be looking to say goodbye to our fabulous Year 6 children with their Leavers Evening Assembly: always a memorable one.




This term PE will involve a range of striking and fielding games alongside athletics. 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. 



Our PPA activities continue to be 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.
