Year 6

Mrs Holden (Deputy Head & Class Teacher), Mrs Maynard (Teaching Assistant)
And so the final year at Clover Hill Primary School begins. This year will be packed with adventures such as our outward bound residential visit (this year to Winmarleigh Hall in Lancashire), as well as learning those essential academic skills to equip our children for their future learning when they move on from Clover Hill.

This is my third year back in Year 6 after 5 years of teaching in KS1. Mrs Maynard works in Year 6 each morning providing us with valuable support with our basic skills. We both started Clover Hill together way back in 2001 (some 17 years ago) and share the same passion and commitment to our children and school community.

I am excited about teaching this fabulous year group and, most importantly, getting to know and guide the children through this exciting and challenging chapter of their education.

Our aim is to make Year 6 a wonderful, challenging and exciting time for our children. I’m sure they will embrace these challenges, responsibilities and privileges of being the oldest children in our school.

If you have any questions about your child’s education or need any advice, please do not hesitate to contact me or another member of the Upper KS2 Team.
