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 practised weekly during sentence activities. Times tables are practised weekly through various activities, games and quizzes! We also enjoy using Times Tables Rockstars to improve our fluency.
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.
