Class 4 (Year 5&6)
Welcome to Class 4
In Class 4, Mrs Rambridge is the class teacher and she is supported by Mr Risbey.
When children reach Class 4 at Eastnor, they are encouraged to continue to build on their learning from all previous year groups. Encouraging children to make links within and across curriculum areas enables them to ensure that their learning is memorable and meaningful. Similarly, placing new learning in its context ensures that the children see how acquisition of key skills will empower them in the future.
In Class 4, we are avid historians, and get our teeth into wonderful historical topics, such as exploring the mythical worlds and legends of Ancient Greece, sailing across the stormy seas and settling with the Vikings and Anglo-Saxons, and learning about the wonders of The Kingdom of Benin.
We are also intrepid explorers, examining the human and physical features of our own country, and others in Europe and the Americas. We travel through exotic biomes and climates, and even use our mapping skills both digitally and by hand, to explore lands near and far.
Alongside each of our wonderful topics, we enjoy many enriching opportunities alongside a busy curriculum. We annually take part in Hereford's Performing Arts Festival, work regularly with the Ledbury Poetry Festival and attend musical events, such as the Young Voices. We also get outdoorsy and active with our residential to Red Ridge Activity Centre, and every other year, enjoy the history and culture of the Isle of Wight.
In Class 4, we are committed to ensuring children have all the skills they will need for our time at Eastnor, and for the next steps they take in the world. Encouraging the children to become courageous advocates is at the heart of our intent in Class 4. Equipping children with the knowledge and skills that they will require to make the move to secondary school as confident individuals who appreciate the importance of their education.
