Class 4 is for Year 6 children, who are taught by Mrs Last. Children in Class 4 are encouraged to be energetic, articulate and thoughtful young people, who enjoy learning in a variety of ways. They benefit from a small class size with personalised support and challenge provided across a broad and rich curriculum. Every day we strive to be guided by our school values of respect, responsibility, trust, friendship and forgiveness.

Our topic for the Autumn term is ‘Ancient Greece’.
In this topic, children will learn about everyday life in Ancient Greece and discover the differences and similarities between Athens and Sparta. We will also be focusing on the history of the Olympics and its modern legacy. Children will use a range of map skills in this topic. They will learn about the climate and terrain of Modern Greece and compare it to our country and local surroundings. This topic will culminate with a Greek celebration and feast!
In English we are studying Greek Myths with a particular focus on Theseus and the Minotaur. Children will be acting out the story, focusing on characterisation and ‘showing not telling’ in their writing to reveal character emotions in a sophisticated way. The children will also have the opportunity to make their own Greek vase.
Our current learning focus is ‘Being Proactive’, which we value as an important part of school life. Throughout our learning, children will be encouraged to be responsible for being the change they want to see.
