Year 5/6

Welcome to Year 5/6!


The last two years of Highfield Primary are spent with Mr Allan and Mr Irving.  In this class we work hard and play hard.  We understand that we need to be role models for the younger children in the school, it's great that they look up to us and we need to make sure at all times that we set an outstanding example.

Welcome to our class page, hopefully you will find this page useful. We will try and put as much useful info on here; what we have to look forward to and anything else that we think you might find useful.


If you have anything that you would like to chat to us about regarding anything that is happening at school then please don't hesitate to catch us in the yard in the morning or make an appointment with Mrs Barrass.  



Mr Allan and Mr Irving
