Priory Class

Our Year 5/6 class is called 'Priory Class'.

Our class teachers are Mrs Scott and Miss Rawlings.

Mrs Scott teaches us until part way through Thursday morning. Mrs Rawlings then teaches us until school finishes on Friday.

Mrs Blundell supports our class too.

At St Mary’s we have a mixed Year 5 and 6 class. We aim to create an enjoyable learning environment where each child can acquire knowledge, skills and practical abilities through a variety of topics. Our curriculum is carefully planned as a whole school to ensure continuity and progression for all. The children are regularly taken on journeys to new worlds through the books we read, covering a wide range of genres and cultures.  

In Priory Class, we understand that all children learn at different paces and in different ways. Lessons and resources are chosen carefully to support all children to become independent learners. We celebrate marvellous mistakes and are courageous in asking for help when we need it. Our learning and class-based discussions are linked to our four school values: courage, curiosity, community and compassion – values we aim for all children to leave our school with a good understanding of. Additionally, St Mary’s School is linked to the nearby Church and we attend regular worship and whole school celebrations there. 

In our class we are all friends and have lots of fun learning, asking questions and solving problems. We enjoy working as a team and learn to share, take turns, help each other and always use kind words. We feel it is very important that the children feel happy and safe in the classroom. We discuss how we can all work together to understand what makes a 'good listener' and how we can look after ourselves, our classroom and each other.
