In our class, we aim to create a nurturing environment, where the children can openly discuss their feelings and feel that they are listened to.

We provide a varied and creative curriculum, which builds upon existing skills to become more challenging.

It's a delight to see the children developing their knowledge and understanding of the world as they question, research, make theories and form opinions about the different topics we study.

By the summer term, the children have developed the confidence and resilience to take part in our residential trips to the Lake District.  As the children become more independent in their learning, we find they rise to the challenges this experience brings.

Year 4 join Butterfly Class for their overnight Youth Hostel stay and Year 5 enjoy the experience of a two-night camp, which they plan and prepare for.
