Our class is a mix of Year 4 & Year 5 pupils.
We study Maths & English in the morning & all other non-core subjects in the afternoon. We have access to 3 computers in the class, laptops & the use of ipads, so that children can carry out research, investigations & reinforce their learning through various educational games & programmes.
Spelling patterns are taught in class and tested weekly during dictation. Times tables are tested weekly in our class Times Tables Rock star Challenge!
Our class is a stimulating & fun place where we learn in a secure & supportive environment. Pupils are encouraged to work independently, but support is provided, if needed, by the teacher or teaching assistant. We are also lucky to have many willing volunteers, who give up their time to help out regularly, with readers & small group activities.
In Digger Bees' class, we believe that when we are having fun, we are more receptive to learning.
