Lions Class

Welcome to Lions Class from Mrs Beardon

Our class name is from the Bible story of Daniel and the Lions Den and as a class we strive to follow the courage, bravery, hope and trust learnt from this story.

We are a mixed Year 5/6 class and we enjoy learning and collaborating together. Our spacious classroom is tidy and well organised with working walls and resources designed to support our learning and to celebrate it. Reading is promoted and valued with books read and recommended by Mrs Beardon. We are encouraged to be independent learners, curious and questioning the world in which we live. We try to be helpful role models for the younger children and to be prepared and ready for our transition to High School.

River Crossing

Lions class had to cross the river in PE using their balancing and cooperative skills to get their team across. A foot in the ‘water’ meant taking your team back to the ‘river bank’. It was good to see them working together as teams.
