Welcome to Class 5.
Welcome to Class 5 and our Teacher, Mrs Sharpe, and Teaching Assistant Mrs Lakin.
We have very high expectations for our pupils in Year 6 and endeavour to exceed these. We work extremely hard, but also enjoy our learning.
During the year, we see the children grow and mature into responsible individuals, who are ready to tackle the demands and challenges of life at secondary school.
In Class 5, we enjoy an extensive and exciting curriculum, which allows the children to reach their full potential.
In June, we go on a residential to France for a week, where the children visit their French correspondents and spend a day in their school. Here, the children are encouraged to speak French and learn about a different culture. Also, during this week, we visit World War 1, War Memorials, in Northern France, as part of our History topic. We make poppy wreaths to take with us, which are placed on each memorial.
During the year, other activities include: a trip to Warning Zone which teaches about the dangers of peer pressure; understanding the consequences of their actions and personal and social responsibilities. Also, we have a day of outdoor pursuits at Beaumanor Hall, where the children experience the 'Aerial Trek', zip wire and the 'Leap of Faith'.
Class 5 participate in many sporting competitions. We have two extremely successful netball and football teams, with many trophies to their credit. We also compete in Tag Rugby, Cricket Tournaments and area Athletics.
Each year, we choose a charity to support and the children work hard to raise money for it.
By the end of the year, our children have become responsible and independent young people, ready for their next step in life.
