A very warm welcome, I am Mrs Pickering and I teach in Year 5 and 6.

Our Class Charter

I am looking forward to an exciting and rewarding year which will be full of challenges and will be fun, stimulating and encourage all of you into finding solutions to problems using a range of collaborative and independent learning techniques. Learning both inside and outside of the classroom is important to enable you to reach your full potential as active engagement and participation is the key to success.

You will always play an important role within our school. Pupil voice is paramount to your learning – tell me what you want to learn, what excites you and where you would like to travel within your imagination. My aim is for you to become more independent whilst, at the same time, to inspire and motivate you to want to achieve your very best in order to reach your highest possible standard. I will challenge your thinking, have high expectations and provide you with a wealth of learning experiences.

Whether you aspire to be an artist, footballer, mathematician or poet, to name but a few, I will provide learning experiences which tickle your taste buds and make you excited to learn as you continue through your school journey. Remember, you can achieve whatever you set your mind to achieve and together we will reach for the stars!

This year promises to be a very busy year in terms of learning new skills. Remember to practise your times tables regularly, learn your spellings and demonstrate that you can use these within your writing, complete all reading and homework tasks too. All of these will help you in your quest of becoming outstanding in all that you do!

Here are some very useful websites that you can use at home!
