I have been at Rode Heath school for over 20 years and before this volunteered for many years when my two sons attended the school.
I love working with all the children here and watching them grow. I have many interests outside of school and absolutely love sport of all kinds, particularly supporting LIVERPOOL FOOTBALL CLUB.

I am really pleased to be working at Rode Heath Primary School teaching Year 6 and being part of the wider community. I have been teaching in Cheshire for thirteen years and enjoy creating new and exciting learning opportunities.

I love watching and taking part in a variety of sporting activities. In my spare time I enjoy playing football, tennis and golf. One of my favourite places to play golf is in Dumfries and Galloway, near to Kirkudbright, even though I lose a lot of golf balls!

Welcome to Year 6

Welcome back! We hope you have had a lovely summer holiday and enjoyed spending time with your loved ones.

We have an exciting year ahead. During this first term, our focus is about history and key events that have shaped Britain. Lessons will consist of exciting and engaging content from the entire curriculum. To help explore this theme, the topic book for this term is: The Valley of Lost Secrets by Lesley Parr. It is a beautifully told story set during World War II in a small village in Wales, where a group of children go on an amazing adventure. I will not say anything further as you will have to read it to find out more.

We will also be following our Maths - No Problem! scheme of work, which incorporates lessons linking to real-life problems. Furthermore, it ensures that topics are covered from previous years so that children have a great understanding of maths and how it can be applied. 

Alongside all of this, we are very much aware of the importance of children being happy, safe and secure in school and to help us do this, we follow our Hearts and Minds curriculum. More information about our Hearts and Minds curriculum can be found using this link: Hearts and Minds.

Thank you for your continued support. It is going to be a great year!


Here are a few important organisational weekly reminders:

  • Homework is set on a Wednesday and due in on a Wednesday: Maths and SPAG/English
  • Homework is also set on a Monday to Monday basis for spellings. 
  • Please ensure your child is filling in their reading diary on a daily basis.
  • Practise timestables on a daily basis using Times Table Rockstars.
  • Children to come in PE kits for the whole day on Tuesdays and Wednesdays for their PE lessons. PE will be outdoors, so please wear appropriate outdoor kit (tracksuit bottoms/ leggings and a jumper/ tracksuit top). 
  • If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to write in your child's reading diary and it will be responded to ASAP. 

Here is a link to the book that I recommend you purchasing to help your child with the Year 6 grammar, punctuation and spelling expectations:
