Class 3/Panther Class
Welcome to Panther Class.
Panther Class is our wonderful Year 4, 5 and 6 children.
Mr Barnes is our class teacher and Mr Ashworth and Mrs Jackson are our teaching assistants. On Wednesday afternoon we are taught by French teacher Mrs McElroy.
Our learning is hands-on and fun. You can keep up to date with all of our exciting events in our Class Blog page.
Each morning we work in smaller groups to learn our maths. The Year 4 children work alongside Year 3 with Mrs Astley in order to follow age appropriate coverage of the curriculum and Years 5 and 6 work with Mr Barnes.
For English we stay together to cover a range of different fiction and non-fiction genres.
In order to meet the requirements of the National Curriculum we have worked hard to design a 3 year rolling programme. The children have already been taught Cycles A and B and this year we will be working thriough Cycle A.

Homework is given out on a Thursday and needs to be returned on a Wednesday.
The children will be given work which will consolidate the lessons we have been taught in class during that week. Please feel free to come and ask for help during any point of the week if you are finding anything tricky.
Reading homework. We want all children in Panther Class to continue to read regularly at home. For many of the older children this will involve children reading quietly to themselves and then discussing what they have read with an adult. We request that parents please sign their childrens' reading record at least 3-4 times a week to confirm that their child has been reading and to make sure that their book is back in on a Tuesday and a Thursday to show to Mrs Jackson.
