Yr 6 Term 1 2019

Welcome to Year 6

The Owl teacher is Mr Taylor and the Swift teacher is Mr Boyle. Our fantastic teaching assistant is Mrs Hendy. On a Wednesday afternoon, Mrs Price and Mrs Bonner teach both classes for Art and Music. Mrs Wilson teaches French every Friday.

We expect hard work and smiling faces in our year group. Along with doing lots of learning, there will be plenty of fun squeezed into every day.

We will be swimming this term, on Tuesday mornings, starting on 10th September. Please make sure that children bring their swimming kit - we won't be phoning home so if they forget it they won't go.
Alan Tanner will be returning on Monday lunchtimes to run a chess club for Years 5 & 6 from 30th September.

He offers an opportunity, for those that already know the basic rules of chess, to play during lunchtime with their peers, and will offer support and guidance.

Please email Mrs Hendy (Alan’s daughter) if your child is interested  at ahendy@hillcrest.bristol.sch.uk

Ideally children should bring packed lunch to help with timings and ensure maximum game time! 
 
Alan runs the club for free. He has three grandchildren that attended this school, and wants to give something back to the community of Hillcrest and share his love of chess!
 
Stop Press...
Chess Club is now fully booked. If you would like to be put on a waiting list please contact Mrs Hendy.
