Class 4 is a mixed year 5 and year 6 group.

Information from the teacher

Childline Schools Service

Just a reminder that swimming starts on Monday 3rd June.

Here is the weekly timetable for class 4. Here is the topic web for the term.  The topic for the Summer term is the Napoleonic War.

Although PE is timetabled for set days, please ensure your child has their PE kit in school at all times as inclement weather can effect our timetabling. Can pupils also ensure that they have a waterproof coat in school as we are often outside for outdoor learning.

Please feel free to contact me on mpinfield@harrowbarrow.cornwall.sch.uk

Visit from Daya

On Tuesday 23rd April Daya came in to talk to us about Sikhism.  We had an opportunity to dress up and try some Indian dancing.

Visit from the RNLI to talk about beach safety

On Wednesday 24th April the RNLI came in to talk to KS2 about keeping safe on the beach this summer.  They explained about how important it is to go to a beach with life guards and to always go the beach with a trusted adult.  We even did some role play with a very young lifeguard!

Tamar Grow Local Daffodil Talk

We were lucky to have Dale to come and talk to us about daffodils.  We then had a chance to press a daffodil and to create our own daffodil species.

Trip to Dartmoor

On Monday 1st April we went to visit Merrivale with Chris and Colin from the Dartmoor Rangers.  They taught us about what to find in the landscape using an OS map.  We found Bronze Age hut circles, evidence of Medieval mining and a Victorian millstone.

Learning Ambassadors

This year the Year 6 are taking on the role of learning ambassadors in the school supporting pupils in other classes.  Here is a copy of the agreement as well as a letter explaining what the learning ambassadors are.
