Welcome to Class Four
Class Four is where the children in Year 5 and Year 6 learn and strive to be ‘the best they can be’. Their learning is supported, enhanced and celebrated by Miss Greenwood (Class Teacher) and teaching assistants: Miss Elliott and Mr Cartwright. Within our class and school, we have high expectations of the children both in their attitude to learning and their behaviour, however the most important thing is that the children enjoy their learning and are able to flourish as individuals.
The children of Year 5 and Year 6 follow the National Curriculum 2014 and the Locally Agreed North Lincolnshire RE Syllabus. This curriculum covers daily Maths and English lessons which develop their skills as mathematicians, writers and readers. The enjoyment of reading has high priority in Class Four and is developed through: whole class reading, group guided reading and 1:1 reading. Children are also encouraged to practise their reading skills and promote their love of reading at home, both with their school reading books and their own personal favourites at home. The importance of key skills is mathematics is key to learning and we have daily arithmetic sessions.
The children’s wider learning experiences are covered in science, geography, history, PHSCE, PE and RE lessons. In addition to this the children benefit from French lessons taught by Mrs Cressey and weekly music lessons from specialist Music teacher, Miss Marshall. On a Thursday afternoon children explore their art skills with Mrs Jaques. These enable the children to develop their interest and skills in a wide range of subjects.
