Welcome to Class Four
In Class Four you will find our enthusiastic, hard working and very responsible Year Five and Year Six pupils.
Our main classroom staff are Miss Wills (teacher) and Mr Maudsley (Learning Support Assistant, LSA). Mrs Biddle teaches the class all day on a Thursday. We enjoy working on a variety of activities with many different staff - a typical week in Class Four is very busy.
Class Four enjoy learning through a range of different activities and are well motivated whatever the subject. Some of our favourite activities include writing exciting stories and poetry, the maths "Around the World" and "Tables Grid" challenges, and reading a novel together in class. Furthermore, we enjoy making use of Learning Support Assistant (LSA) Learning Support Assistant (LSA) our tablets (kindly funded by our amazing PTA), and Chromebooks, for both Computing activities and for research in a range of curriculum subjects, such as our Topic work about the Victorian times. Class Four are also a very inquisitive group, and enjoy developing their experimental and investigative skills in their exciting weekly Science lessons with Mrs Biddle. They are also keen to learn about other places and cultures, and are very lucky to benefit from the expertise of Mrs Crosswood teaching Spanish lessons on a weekly basis.
Creative tasks are also enjoyed by Class Four. Art is a favourite subject for many pupils, and we really love to view and evaluate each other's work at the end of a session. In addition, Music is also very popular. Year Five and Six love creating our own compositions, both with instruments and devising song lyrics. Many Class Four pupils also attend our orchestra, run by Mrs Dobson, and have individual lessons for singing, piano and brass. For one term per year, thanks to the hard work of Mrs Dobson, we are able to have a whole class set of brass instruments on loan from The Music Hub. We thoroughly enjoy her lessons and recognise that to share in her expertise is an opportunity too good to be missed.
Many pupils in Class Four are keen participants in Sports and PE. All are enthusiastic to take part in PE lessons, enjoying practicing their skills and competitive tactics in small sided games during "REAL PE" sessions. During the year, we are lucky to have the opportunity to work for several sessions with specialists Mrs Nash (Gymnastics), Plymouth Argyle (Football, Basketball, Athletics), and Launceston Cricket Club. In addition, we are pleased to enter pupils into team and individual competitions with other schools, including those involving football, netball, rugby, swimming and cross country.
Being the oldest pupils in the school, Class Four are pleased to take on additional responsibilities. The School Council is run by members of Class Four (under Mrs Little's guidance), and we have The GrEAT Team (Green Eco Action Team), Digital Leaders, Learning Family leaders, House Captains and Vice-Captains. We also enjoy helping out around the school less formally, for example, assisting with office tasks and working in collaboration with the PTA when opportunities arise.
As you can see, Class Four is a busy but exciting place, and it has not been possible to mention all that we do! Therefore, if you require any further information, please do make contact with us via the school office, or pop into school and see Miss Wills.
