Year 5 & 6

Welcome to Year 5 and 6


Message from the class teacher

Welcome to class 4!  In this class we work hard. We learn every day and we have fun while doing it. We encourage individuality and create citizens of the future.

Mistakes are welcomed in this class. We make them, we correct them and we learn from them. As Albert Einstein said:

‘Anyone who has never made a mistake, has never learned anything new.’

We dream big but work hard.

We develop our ability to critically evaluate the world around us. We further develop our confidence, knowledge and skills to prepare us for a future world and realise the high aspirations we have for ourselves.
