Class 5 - Y3/4
Welcome to Class 5
Welcome to Class 5. The teaching team this year is Mrs Godsell (Class Teacher), Mrs Champlin (who will cover PPA and/or Leadership Time every Thursday afternoon), ably assisted by Mrs Mycroft (Teaching Assistant). We are all very much looking forward to working with your child.
It is important to us that your children enjoy coming to school and are motivated to take responsibility for their own learning. We want to help them do this by having a classroom environment which encourages everyone to:
- Be actively engaged and committed to their learning
- Achieve the best that they can both in and out of school
- Be successful, confident and self-motivated
- Have respect for everyone around them and to value difference
- Be open to new ideas and be willing to take risks
- Participate fully in the many opportunities available to them
This year the staff in Class 5 aim to inspire your children by embracing the ‘Creative Curriculum’ which uses creative, cross-curricular themes to enhance learning, all within one common theme for a term or half a term. We will be trying new ideas and using exciting and creative hooks to deliver broader and more varied lessons so that your children are motivated to achieve their best and to fully participate in their learning.
Class 5 are a very enthusiastic and sporty class and we are also looking forward to extending our learning outside of the classroom environment wherever possible in order to stay active, have fun and enjoy school!
Please have a look at the ‘End Of Year Expectations’ leaflets attached below to see what skills and knowledge children should have acquired by the end of each year group.

Homework Menu & Homework Books
Each half term, children are given a new ‘Homework Menu’ from which they can select a specific number of activities to complete from the different areas of learning.
They can present their work in their homework book by either drawing/writing directly onto the paper or by sticking in printed sheets or photographs. Homework books should be returned to school during the last week of each half term.
There is a lot of choice on each menu and we really hope that pupils have fun working on their chosen projects!
A Knowledge Organiser is a go-to document for a topic/unit of work: each one identifies the key information that children need to have learned by the end of a topic. It also acts as a tool to support children in retaining and retrieving knowledge for life-long learning.
We have developed our own Knowledge Organisers to support the delivery of the curriculum, with each one starting with knowledge children should already know from previous learning. Each organiser also has a quiz to help children recall the knowledge and a list of technical vocabulary with definitions.
