Welcome back to School!

We hope you all had the most wonderful summer holiday and are fully energised for our incredibly exciting year in Class Six.

This term, we are going to begin with our Mission Week. This will focus around St. Jerome's at 50! We will be looking back over the previous 50 years as well as looking forward and thinking about what the next 50 years may bring.

Our theme for this autumn term is:

"Conflict and Resolution: Is it ever right to fight?"

In our English we will be using the text, 'Star of Hope, Star of Fear' by Jo Hoestlandt and linking this with our history topic 'Why was winning the Battle of Britain in 1940 so important?' This investigation enables pupils to examine a wide range of historical sources to help them gain some insight into the thinking of the leaders of Nazi Germany in May 1940 and the reasons why securing air superiority was so critical to them for any invasion plan to succeed. It also supports pupils to identify and reach a judgment about the relative importance of the factors that contributed to the United Kingdom winning what has become known as the Battle of Britain. 

I am sure we will have an amazing term and always remember, if you have any questions or queries, you can always email the class email address below.

Many thanks for your support. Continue to stay safe and smile!


Our class webpage will be updated throughout the year to inform you of any important information and changes.

P.E. in Class Six will take place on a Tuesday and a Thursday. Please ensure your child comes to school wearing their P.E. kit. Your child can wear their school jumper or cardigan as well as a coat over the top of their P.E. kit. In cold weather please allow your child to wear tracksuit bottoms if needed. If your child suffers from veruccas please ensure they have pumps or it is covered up adequately if the P.E. session is indoors as trainers and socks will be taken off.

Homework in Class Six will take place throughout the week. Children are also expected to read and we suggest at least 10 minutes a day if at all possible.
