We are a class of 32 children: 17 year 5 pupils and 15 year 6 pupils. This means that our ages range from 9-11 years old.
Mrs Goodwin is our class teacher on Mondays and Tuesdays with Mrs Pearson taking over Wednesday to Friday.
We are very lucky to have support in our class from Mrs Potter.
Every Monday children are given their spellings list for the week ahead. These are copied down in school but should also be part of our daily 10 minutes LCWCH (look, cover, write and check) homework.
Although our P.E sessions are on Friday morning P.E kits should be brought in at the beginning of the week- in case weather conditions cause changes to the timetable.
