Welcome back! We hope you have all had a lovely Summer and enjoyed a well deserved break.
We hope this half term will be full of exciting new learning and everyone is ready for some hard work and fun!
A little bit about us:
Hello I am Mrs Fullerty, your new Year 5 teacher here at St Mary’s. I am looking forward to working with you this year, watching you make huge progress and gain confidence on your learning journey.
I am eager to see you all become more creative, enthusiastic about your learning- achieving high standards in reading, writing and maths. I can't wait for all the funny jokes and the interesting things you all come and tell me throughout the day.
I have a daughter who is the same age as most of you! In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family, exploring Rossendale with my two dogs; Primrose and Belle, camping, attending Church and listening to music.
Miss James is our Teaching Assistant and we have got lots of lovely activities planned to help our pupils grow in confidence and mindset this year.
