Year 6 - Mrs Hillier


Welcome to our Year 6 page


For those of you that don’t know me, my name is Mrs Hillier and I have taught at St. Michael’s since 2012. Within those 7 years, I have taught all year groups across Key Stage 2. I’m looking forward to another exciting year working with our oldest children, making their final year of primary school memorable and preparing them for their high school journey. This year Mrs Bebbington will be working with us to support our teaching and learning.


Year 6 is fun, inspiring and stimulating. The children will have many new experiences and enjoyable topics to study. Our learning will be challenging but together we will be the best that we can be using our resilience, determination and independence. Working towards our SATs is very important but another equally important aspect of this year is to ensure that our pupils are ‘high school ready’. This is not just educationally, but mentally, socially and emotionally.


It is vital that we work together as a team - pupils, staff and parents – to ensure that our children are reaching their full potential. Please ensure that you always share any worries or concerns and celebrate important achievements with me. My door is always open and Stef and Helen are always here to listen too.

Harry and Tommy answered our questions about the local area and Harry told us all about his experiences of WW2 as a child. 

What have we been studying in English?

All of our writing activities have been based around the book 'Star of Fear, Star of Hope' by Jo Hoestland. In the images below, we were freeze framing and thought tracking as characters in the illustration and we then wrote expanded noun phrases to set the scene.

In this English activity, we completed a 'zone of relevance' where we were thinking about two characters' feelings at a particular point in the book.
