Class 5 - Mrs Harrison
All about Class 5
This is the first step into the Juniors & the children in this class are in Year 3 and 4. Their class teacher is myself, Mrs Harrison and their teaching assistants are Mrs Mooring and Mr Smalley.
In our class, we cover a range of exciting topics such as Explanations, Poetry, Stories with Issues & Dilemmas and Magazine Articles in English, Textiles & Collage in Art & Design Technology, Vikings & Anglo-Saxons in History, Map Reading in Geography, Sound & Electricity in Science, a range of bible stories and all about other faiths in RE and a range of skills in PE.
During the Summer Term, the children enjoy visiting Accrington Academy for swimming lessons. These weekly lessons teach them some fantastic water safety skills and also allows them to become more independent in the pool. It is important that children are in school at 8:30 on swimming days and that they remember their swimming caps.

If you wish to know more about the Year 3 and Year 4 curriculum, please do not hesitate to contact school.
Within Class 5, the children will cover a range of topics across the curriculum. Due to the amount of history and geography topics that the children are required to study in Key Stage Two and the mixed aged classes that we have at St Oswald's, we run a four year cycle.
