We are a mixed Year 4 and Year 6 class of 12 pupils. We are a busy energetic and friendly class and our classroom gives us space in which we can both learn through play and more formal learning styles.
Our Class Teacher is Carol Collins and the Teaching Assistants are Mandy, Elaine (Mon-Wed), Carolyn (Mon-Thu), Sharon (Thu-Fri) and Tracy (Fri)
All our staff are here to help students to learn the routines of a busy learning environment as well as ensure they all make the very best progress they can.We encourage the children to be as independent as they can and gain vital skills for independent living.
How we learn
The curriculum in our class is differentiated so that all pupils can access the National Curriculum. The majority of our lessons include a practical aspect to ensure the children get the opportunity to embed their learning through hands on experience.
To support us to make the very best progress we work hard to:
- Improve our listening through circle games
- Improve our concentration and turn taking
- Learn how to get along together
- Work more independently
To help with our routine and behaviour we have a set of classroom rules.
Our classroom rules are:
- We are helpful
- We are Kind
- We work hard
