Oak Class (Y5/6)

In Class Four you will find our enthusiastic, hard working and very responsible Year Five and Year Six pupils.


Our main classroom teacher is Miss Wills (teacher), and Mrs Biddle teaches the class on Thursdays. Our Learning Support Assistant Mr Maudsley will work with individual children and groups at various times during the week.  We enjoy working on a variety of activities with these staff members - a typical week in Class Four is very busy. 


Class Four enjoy learning through a range of different activities and are well motivated whatever the subject. Some of our favourite activities include writing exciting stories and poetry, the maths "Around the World" and "Tables Grid" challenges, and reading a novel together in class. Furthermore, we enjoy making use of Chromebooks, for both Computing activities and for research in a range of curriculum subjects, such as our Topic work.  Class Four are also a very inquisitive group, and enjoy developing their experimental and investigative skills in their exciting weekly Science lessons with Mrs Biddle.  They are keen to learn about other places and cultures, and are very lucky to benefit from the expertise of languages specialist Mrs Crosswood teaching Spanish lessons on a weekly basis.


Creative tasks are also enjoyed by Class Four.  Art is a favourite subject for many pupils, and we really love to view and evaluate each other's work at the end of a session.  In addition, Music is also very popular.   Year Five and Six love creating our own compositions, both with instruments and devising song lyrics.  Some Class Four pupils have individual lessons for piano and brass too.  In recent years, for one term per year, thanks to the hard work of Mrs Dobson, we are able to have a whole class set of insruments (brass or clarinet) on loan from AsOne Perform (formerly The Music Hub), and we hope this will be able to continue.  We thoroughly enjoy her lessons and recognise that to share in her expertise is an opportunity too good to be missed.


Many pupils in Class Four are keen participants in Sports and PE.  All are enthusiastic to take part in PE lessons, enjoying practicing their skills and competitive tactics in small sided games during PE sessions. During the year, we are lucky to have the opportunity to work for several sessions with specialist coaches from Plymouth Argyle (football and a range of other sports). In addition, we are pleased to enter pupils into team and individual competitions with other schools (often at Launceston College - the first steps towards secondary school transition), including those involving football, netball, rugby, swimming and cross country.


Being the oldest pupils in the school, Class Four are pleased to take on additional responsibilities. The School Council is run by members of Class Four (under staff guidance), and we have The GrEAT Team (Green Eco Action Team), a Sports Council, Learning Family leaders, House Captains and Vice-Captains.  We also enjoy helping out around the school less formally, for example, assisting with office tasks and working in collaboration with the PTA when opportunities arise.


As you can see, Class Four is a busy but exciting place, and it has not been possible to mention all that we do!  Therefore, if you require any further information, please do make contact with us via the school office, or pop into school and see Miss Wills.

Class Four Homework 2023-2024

Each pupil will be issued (on Friday 7th September) with a homework folder containing homework information and a spelling booklet.  A reading record has already been issued. 

A copy of the information sent home in the folder, along with a range of other resources to support homework, is provided on the Class Four Homework page of the school website.

Parents of Year 6 pupils have the option of requesting (via a letter also issued in the homework folder on Friday 7th September)  an additional SATs-linked homework resource containing tasks and an answer pack. This is not compulsory, and in the interest of being both "environmentally friendly" and "budget-conscious," will only be issued to those who specifically request it.

 Thank you
