Lions class teacher is Miss Charlotte Baker.
Welcome to Lions Class. We use our name from the Bible story of Daniel and the Lions Den, and as a class we strive to follow the bravery, hope and trust learnt from this story. We are a mixed Year 5/6 group and we enjoy our spacious classroom as we learn and collaborate together. Our room is well-equipped with computers, a calm reading and reflection corner and an art area for crafts. Our teacher uses an interactive touch screen board for our learning, and in our own outdoor area we have a brand new table tennis table that we freely use at break times. We do Outdoor learning in a designated area of the school grounds with Mrs Cairns.
Miss Baker teaches the class everyday. Mrs Sparey and Mrs Curtis support the class during the week.

Today we visited the incredible, very grand Chatsworth House. It was an amazing experience walking through the house, learning about the history and the old and contemporary artwork. The photos really speak for themselves. We also enjoyed the farmyard, playground and paddling on the cascade on the grounds. Final day of activities tomorrow!
We’ve certainly had an action-packed day today! Rock climbing, abseiling and caving were our main activities. Photo opportunities were limited today but we’ve taken a few. Many children faced their fears and gave things a go, which is fantastic. They were all so pleased with themselves and what they achieved today. From the tight squeezes … Read more
