Teacher: Mrs Geraghty
Welcome to our Year Five class page. We hope that this page will allow you to share our exciting journey throughout the school year.
I am delighted to be teaching Year Five and have no doubt that we will have a brilliant, successful year ahead of us, filled with some wonderful topics of learning across the curriculum. I am also delighted to be working with Miss Walker, who joins us as our classroom assistant.
A bit about us both…
Outside of school, I spend my time focusing on my family. I am very lucky to be Mum to Joe (6) and Lily (4) and we make the most of our family time together, enjoying days out and travelling whenever possible. My hobbies include team sports, such as netball, and I like to visit the gym when I am able to. Aside from sport, I enjoy reading as many books as possible (something which I aim to bring into the classroom as well). I have always enjoyed getting lost in the pages of a book. My favourite school age reads include War Horse by Michael Morpurgo and The Lion Above The Door by Onjali Rauf.
Miss Walker is very creative and will bring her artistic talents to our classroom this year. Her family are very important to her and she always enjoys spending time with her grown up children, Daniel and Mia. Miss Walker enjoys trying out all the local restaurants in her free time, as well as travelling to Tenerife during school holidays.
Both myself and Miss Walker look forward to working with you all during the year ahead. Let’s work together to make it amazing!
