It is an exciting year for your children as they continue their journey through school and move into their final year here at Our Lady & St Gerard’s. In Year 6, I have high expectations of all of the children, through behaviour and being ready to learn and grow as a team and individuals. I will be encouraging the children to become more independent and to take responsibility for organising themselves and their belongings.
Our classroom is a happy and positive working environment, where praise and encouragement are used to motivate and support all of the children. I ask that each child tries their best and develops a resilient attitude towards learning. Together, we have devised a set of class rules. Each child has signed these as a promise to work together as a team and strive to be the very best they can be. As a class, the children have spoken very honestly about the areas of learning that they feel they would like to improve and have approached the new year with positive attitudes and a determination to succeed.
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.
We will be doing PE every Please ensure your child comes to school in their kit and has a waterproof coat/jacket with them, as PE will take place outside as much as possible, in order to comply with Government guidelines.
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.
