Welcome to 6E


Welcome back to a new term, my name is Mrs Pilkington and I will be teaching Year 6E (Year 6P) for the rest of the year. I am very excited to get to know 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 and will need to be completed in their green homework books. Children must return their homework by the following Wednesday.  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.  


PE will be on a Tuesday and Friday afternoon this half term. Please ensure your child has their full PE kit in school. (black/navy shorts, white t-shirt and trainers) 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.

Recommended Reading Books

We have selected these recommended reading lists from Peters Education to ensure that our children have access to a wide range of books.  These books are all available in school and form our 'core' texts in our class libraries.  These lists are chosen because they:

  • link with our curriculum for each year group
  • represent different cultures
  • introduce children to new authors and expand their knowledge of familiar authors
  • ensure progression 
  • match topics of interests for our children
  • tackle current themes
