Welcome to 6E
It is an exciting year for your children as they continue their journey through school and complete their final year here at Our Lady & St Gerard’s. We look forward to working together to prepare your children for the next step as they embark on life at High School.
Our classroom is a happy and positive working environment, where praise and encouragement are used to motivate and support all of the children. We follow our Behaviour Charter, encouraging the children to: 'Be Safe'; 'Be a learner'; 'Be kind and respectful'. I ask that each child tries their best and develops a resilient attitude towards learning.
Throughout the year, lots of new and exciting learning will take place. Your children will be challenged to be the very best they can be and encouraged to take part in every aspect of school life. I value the support you give your child at home with reading, spelling, learning times tables and delving into any topic-based research or interests your children may express.
Every Friday, homework will be set on Sumdog. This will include maths, spelling and grammar. In addition, please encourage your child to read daily and sign their Reading Record once a week. Reading books should come to school every day.
We will be swimming on Mondays from 20th September until Christmas. Please ensure your child has their swimming costume, towel and swimming hat with them every Monday. P.E. will also be on Tuesdays. Full P.E. kit (black/navy shorts, white t-shirt and trainers) must be in school every Tuesday. Jewellery should not be worn.
Please do not hesitate to speak to me if you have any questions throughout the year. I look forward to working with you and watching your child blossom as the year progresses.
