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.
Year 6 Overview of Themes 2020-2021

The Word of God became human. “How is that possible?” you ask. Well, all believers and non- believers listen up. Here is the story about how the Word of God became a human being:
The story of the nativity begins with the Annunciation. One night when Joseph had gone to bed, Mary heard a call, “You’re going to have a baby called Jesus.” After many weeks of waiting, Mary and Joseph set off on a long journey to Bethlehem. When they arrived at Bethlehem, Mary and Joseph tried to find a place to stay for the night. The only place available was a dusty stable so they took the only place that they could. That cold winter’s night, the Son of God was born. The Messiah had arrived, just as God had promised. We know this because as Jesus grew up, he went on to walk on water, turn water into wine and even heal the blind.
So what does God ask us to do? God doesn’t want us to perform miracles, he doesn’t ask us to walk on water, turn water into wine or even heal the blind . No! God asks us to be kind, caring and helpful, to help others in need, keep the faith and always believe. This Christmas, this special time of year, think about others and how The Word of God became a human being. Let’s remember the true meaning of Christmas this year.
