Hilton Lane Primary School

Aiming High Together

Year 6

Year 6 have signed up to the BBC winter bird watch. We are counting the birds on the school grounds every day and have made some bird feeders to attract new birds using fruit. We are now all avid “twitchers”! 

We have been working really hard in Year 6! In English, we have researched Sir Alex Ferguson and Sir David Attenborough, using this information to write biographies. We are looking forward to writing another biography on Dr Thomas Barnardo. In geography, we have been comparing England and North America. We researched the political geography in the UK and the USA and presented our findings to the class.
Outside of the classroom, we are learning the skills and techniques required to play hockey. The picture you can see here shows our first lesson, when we practised keeping the ball under control while dribbling.

A Message From Harrop Fold For Year 6 Students


Dear Parent/Carer,


I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself to you. During this half term, I have joined the transition team at Harrop Fold working with S Wells from our senior leadership team. My role is to pick up and continue our work on transition. I will be working with primary schools in the local area to develop positive relationships between our schools and ensure a smooth transition for Year 6 students who are thinking of joining us in September 2021.


Our transition team are already looking forward to the year ahead and we have recently created a Virtual Open Evening to showcase what Harrop Fold has to offer. I would love for your children to be able to take a look around our school, visit our faculties, meet our staff and hopefully decide that we are the secondary school for them. It would be wonderful if you could follow the link below with your child:



Thank you for your time and I look forward to working with you.


Yours faithfully,


J Travis
