Welcome to Year 4’s Class Page!
As well as myself, Mrs Hemingway, as the class teacher, Miss Squires, Mrs Markey and Mr Mensah, our class teaching assistants, make up our team. Our overall aim is to provide our children with engaging, stimulating lessons that prepare them not only for their later education, but future adult life. We want all of the children to come into class and learn something new every day whilst having fun and developing a love for learning. As part of Year 4 one of our main goals is to be independent, successful role models in everything we do. We always aim to set a good example in our behaviour and attitude by following both our class and school rules, and by learning from any mistakes we make, following and adopting a growth mind set and resilience. We are determined to become independent learners, who take an ownership over our own learning. As well as that, as I am a keen animal lover and baker, I love sharing my experiences with the children, and equally enjoy it when they share with me the things they enjoy doing.
In our class, the children have many opportunities to learn in a variety of places outside the classroom, including visits to Wakefield Museum, Jorvik Viking Centre and even Pizza Express! We also enjoy using the school grounds and our school garden where possible as part of our learning.
Our classroom is a safe, cheerful and welcoming environment, where we all, including the staff, give 100% during every lesson and activity. As a class we will take care of our learning environment and take care of ourselves, others and property so that we can strive to be the best version of ourselves. We will aim to be responsible and independent role models who make progress and achieve our targets throughout the year, but most importantly enjoy school and have happy, smiling faces at the end of every day. Also, we will work as a team, treat everyone with respect and help and support those who need us, becoming confident and ambitious role models, leaving the year with many fantastic memories.
