Welcome to 4/5R's class page. Take a look around to find out more about our class and to see what we're learning about.

 

Our class is rather special because we have two year groups learning together.

 

Miss Richards is our class teacher and we work with Mrs Jelley in the mornings.

 

In the afternoons, Year 4 pupils go to Lower School for their Reading, Topic & Science lessons. On these afternoons, we work with Miss Ottowell, Mrs Cave & Miss Mercer.

 

Homework & spellings for both year groups will go home on Fridays.
