Welcome to Class 4 at Friezland Primary School!
Welcome to Class 4, where pupils in Year 5 and 6 work with the class teacher, Miss Hill. It is always a busy classroom with a packed timetable and happy children. Pupils spend two years in Class 4 and therefore the learning is on a two-year cycle. We use key questions which the children try to answer through their learning, such as, ‘Were the Vikings always vicious and victorious?’, 'Who were the Maya?' and ‘If God is everywhere, why go to a place of worship?’ We are keen authors and our writing is inspired by high quality books, texts, images and our personal experiences. A wide range of visits and visitors are woven through the curriculum to broaden the learning opportunities and widen children's experiences. The content is driven by the children's prior knowledge and understanding and they build on the skills and knowledge they have acquired in previous years. You will find information about our learning for this half-term in our class newsletter below.
Children in Class 4 have the opportinity to become School Councillors, members of the Eco Council and have responsibilites such as Assembly Monitors. In Year 6, our pupils become 'Buddies' to the New Reception children and support them through their first year in school, which is an experience that they treasure. Class 4 is a place where children feel safe and confident to try new things, learn from mistakes and enjoy learning. The class work extremely hard as a team to meet the Friezland expectations. Preparations for moving on to KS3 are made early so that we can best prepare our pupils for secondary school and for learning and living in the 21st Century.
