Small School... Big Family!

Brecon Class(Year 4, 5, 6)

Welcome to Brecon Class! 

 

Welcome to Brecon class where years 4, 5 and 6 learn together. Our class is taught by two teachers: Mrs Grinnell and Mrs Gomersall and we are supported by our amazing teaching assistants. In our classroom, we work hard, support one another and celebrate each other’s successes.

 

We strive to provide as many opportunities for our KS2 children as possible. We are actively involved in local sporting tournaments and festivals and have a weekly session with our sports coach too. This term the children are also involved in an inter-school times table championship, sporting events run by our Year 6 Bronze Ambassadors and they can also attend Stop Motion lunchtime club if they wish.

 

Please take a look at our photographs to see what else we get up to!

In Geography, we will be completing map work to identify the continents, countries and key cities as well as other important features including the tropics, equator and lines of latitude and longitude. We will make a comparison between the human and physical geography of the USA and areas more local to us. We also will study the Seven Wonders of the World

In science,we will be looking at the life processes of all living things. Children will learn how to classify animals and plants into different groups before learning how to create a yes no decision tree to classify unknown animals or plants. 

In RE, we will be asking the question: When Jesus left, what was the impact of Pentecost? We will learn about how Pentecost marks the birth of the Christian Church and why symbols such as dove, fire and wind are associated with this time in the Church calendar.

PE is led by our sports coach who will be developing our netball skills and helping us to improve our fitness.
