Bees Class

Class Teacher: Mrs Layzell

In Year 4, we focus on developing children's independence and resilience. Our lessons are to engage and encourage the children to develop their own interests and feel a sense of confidence and achievement in their learning. We strive to create an environment where the children are excited to come to school and feel safe and nurtured during their time with us.


Every day, we start with early morning work which is followed by Spelling or Handwriting practice. Maths and Literacy and Guided Reading are taught every day, RE is taught on a Friday. Our afternoons are spent working on Science, Topic, Art and D/T, PSHE, Computing and Music. 

For further information on our curriculum, see our half termly curriculum overview.

Children attend collective worship every day which includes singing and celebration and collective worship in class.


Each year, our Year 4 children take part in a class band where every child receives a term of instrument tuition. This year, we are doing SAMBA music and learning how to play the drums with a teacher from Dorset Music Service.
