My name is Mr. Pearce and I am the Year 6 teacher. I am really excited to be part of the team of teachers, staff and pupils at Highwood. I am particularly keen to learn as much as I can from everyone, which definitely includes the children too! I know we will all try our hardest to achieve our very best. I am a keen rugby fan, (when my baby daughter will let me actually watch a game!) and I love cooking and baking, although my chances of being 'Star Baker' are still looking as low-rising as my loaf cake! I like to work hard and have fun and it is with this attitude that I will be taking my class through the year.
Hello, my name is Mrs Raines and I am really pleased to be teaching in Year 6 again. I taught Year 4 at Gorse Ride Junior just before I joined Highwood, but had previously taught at Beechwood Primary School in Woodley for several years. I enjoy teaching all subjects but I particularly love sharing my love of reading and writing with the children, and completing tricky maths problems! In my free time, I enjoy sleeping!
