Welcome to Class 19
We are a creative and enthusiastic class, who like to make learning unique, exciting and enjoyable.
Mr Anderton is our class teacher and we would describe him as positive, calm and persistent. He encourages us to be confident in ourselves and to be the best that we can be.
All the Year 5 and 6 classes work closely together to ensure your child receives the best possible learning experiences. We follow a two year cycle of planning with a wonderful, exciting range of topics and activities. We place a lot of importance on developing children's thinking skills and their ability to improve their own work, whilst giving them the basic skills from which they can begin to fully reach their potential.
Below is a brief outline of the topics we cover in Year 5 and 6. We would love it if you could talk to your child about their topic and find out more about what they've been learning.
