Seatown Class

 

Seatown class is the home for Year 5 and 6 pupils and is led by Key Stage 2 teacher, Mrs Jo Cleden and is aptly located at the top of the school in a beautiful new classroom created as part of the school rebuild in 2011.

In Seatown class, pupils are encouraged to take more responsibility for their own learning and homework in readiness for secondary school.  Pupils in Years 5 and 6 often take on formal ‘Sports Leaders’ roles in selected play-times, are mentors for the lower school and balance preparation for end of year exams with a wide curriculum including plenty of sports competitions, curriculum-linked trips and the ever-popular annual sailing experience!
