In Stags class we encourage the pupils to be independent, confident and hard-working. Not only does this give them good grounding for their learning in Year 5 and 6, but also prepares them for Secondary school.

Much of our learning is linked to themes, which often covers a number of subjects across the curriculum. Visits and using our outdoor 'classroom' form an integral part of the pupil's education, whilst encouraging them to carry out their own research to supplement their lessons.

As they become older, responsibility for caring for others in school is promoted. These may be in the form of play leaders, organising events and fundraising for the community, giving them skills which can be built on as they move up to their next school.

Class Teacher: Miss Newcombe

Teaching Assistant: Mrs Trish Palmer

We are fortunate to be able to use the Village Hall for teaching drama, gymnastics and dance.

We learn to collaborate with each other when we work in DT learning about cogs and gears.

Whenever possible we invite visitors into school, or take educational visits, to enhance the learning opportunity for our children. This year we visited 'Wildwood' where we experienced life in Anglo-Saxon times. We were able to cook, forge iron and trial wood-turning using tools similar to our ancestors.
