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 Mr Lees, 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 children who are ready to learn.
In Class 4 we teach a broad and balanced curriculum, preparing pupils 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 children with life experience and skills. We build upon the overnight experience pupils have 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 pupils' skills of independence and resilience whilst providing a rich array of opportunity and experience in a different setting. Pupils experience the wider world and develop their skills ready for secondary school with regular visits to Ibstock Community College for swimming lessons, a trip to Warning Zone to learn more about dangers in the wider world. In addition our pupils attend workshops and events with pupils from other local school to ensure pupils are given the opportunity to socialise and engage with peers from the local area.
Pupils 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. Pupils 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 School Council, Sports Ambassadors and Internet Legends roles.
