Together We Can Achieve Excellence

Class 4

Welcome to Class Four!

Class 4 is made up of years 5 and 6, upper Key Stage Two. The class teacher is Mr Kedwards, with support from Mrs Bates, Mrs Stirk and Mrs Hall.

Class 4 is fun, busy, interesting and energetic. We love what we do and we love learning: from maths to Martians, Bosworth Battlefield to Beowulf, Steel Pans to Shakespeare and so much more in between! Our classroom is vibrant and exciting and always full of eager, happy learners who are ready to be challenged. 

In Class 4 we teach a broad and balanced curriculum, preparing learners for the end of Key Stage 2 and secondary school. We provide diverse, enjoyable and challenging learning experiences to ensure that everyone achieves their best.

In class four we equip learners with life experience and skills. We build upon the overnight experience  in Class Three with an extended three night residential trip to Beaumanor Hall, as well as an overnight stay at the National Space Centre. These trips further develop our learners' skills of independence and resilience whilst providing a rich array of opportunity and experience in a different setting. Learners  experience the wider world and develop their skills ready for secondary school with regular opportunities to work, socialise with and engage with with learners from different schools. A trip to Warning Zone to learn more about dangers in the wider world.

Learners are afforded a wide range of experience of culture and diversity: we study a key religion each year and this is enhanced by a visit to a place of worship relating to this faith. We also watch theatre shows and workshops and attend the fantastic Orchestra Unwrapped trip with Class Three. Learners build upon their existing knowledge of the Orchestra and again experience the pleasure of live music. 

We encourage values of independence and a positive attitude to learning. We show respect and understanding to all members of our school community, and play a vital role in our school’s leadership through our Learners Council, Sports Ambassadors and Internet Legends roles. 

Our class curriculum, due to the nature of a two year group class, works on a two year rolling programme. Our class newsletter below gives an overview of the rules and routines in Class Four, as well as the curriculum overview for this term.
