Mrs Walker

Welcome to Mrs Walker's Class

Year 6


Summer Term 2019

Welcome to the SummerTerm. This term will be a busy one -we will be working extremely hard preparing for our SATs which begin on Monday 13th May until Thursday 16th May.Although we have all this hard work to do, we also intend to have lots of fun along the way.

Once SATs are over, we can look forward to our annual residential to Menai- the highlight being Pyjama Fashion Show- get your best PJs ready!

During the Summer Term, we will continue to enjoy a varied curriculum and we have lots of fun activities planned. We will end the year and your time at Highfields with our Leavers Assembly- get the tissues ready!

 Our aim is to ensure that your last term at Highfields is a memorable one!


So what have we got in store for you in the SummerTerm?

We have lots of exciting work planned this term. Our Story Topic continues to be based on Journey to the River Sea by Eva Ibbotson but we will also be using two other books to stimulate our writing and work in other subjects- The Explorer by Katherine Rundell and Survivors by David Long.

These books will inspire lots of creative work- we intend to transform our classroom into an Amazon rainforest with art work inspired by Henri Rousseau. One of the highlights of this term will be creating our own  Rainforest Smoothies and writing adverts for them . I can't wait for the taste testing! 




Take a look at our Summer Curriculum Planner to see all the exciting things we have planned this term.






Homework will be  given out on Thursday to be handed in the following Thursday. If completed sooner then it can be handed in earlier. Maths homework will be set on My Maths ( if you do not have access to a computer, please let me know, however, this year we have Homework Clubs where your child can stay in at lunchtime or after school to complete this task). Grammar homework will be set in a book. Spellings and times tables tests will be set on the Brain Builder which will record the homework for the week and any extra information needed. Tests will be every Thursday.

   Reading Record Diary.   

It would be great if you could hear your child read on a daily basis and fill in the diary every time. Also, please encourage your child to read independently  and to record this reading time too. This diary will be beneficial to assess how much reading your child is doing.

PE Kit

Could we please remind you that PE kit is a yellow top with school logo, black shorts and trainers. If the weather is cold please bring black track suits or black jogging bottoms ( with school logo) and long sleeved tops in the school uniform colours. 

PPA Activity

Our PPA activity for this half term is Forest Fun on Wednesday afternoon.

Water Bottles

Please ensure your child brings their water bottle to school everyday and that it is clearly labelled with their name.


If you need to ask me anything or have any problems, I am always available before and after school. Please do not hesitate to contact me.
