Pine Class

Lead Learner: Fergus Reid

If you have any questions or concerns regarding teaching in these classes please contact Fergus or the class teacher.

Pupils are placed in chronologically aged and mixed ability classes with a team of adults who support the delivery of the National Curriculum. Throughout out years five and six children are provided with inspiring learning topics which are personalised to meet every child’s individual needs and learning style.

Our classrooms are exciting, safe and stimulating learning environments with an emphasis on creativity and cross-curricular learning.

As part of our learning journey we go on a number of educational visits, topic based theme days and take part in whole-school events to give our pupils memorable experiences that maximise learning opportunities.

A big part of our learning is providing the younger children with positive role models. The pupils in year five and six start to take on active responsibilities around the school; this can range from taking registers to being lunch time buddies. It is an important step that prepares pupils for transition to the next part of their academic career.

In year six we have a fantastic residential trip to Hindleap Warren or Butlins. It is a great trip for the pupils and the children really develop their confidence. It is a real celebration of their time at Manor Green Primary just in time for our Leavers Celebrations.

We are now lucky enough to have regular visits from the fabulous Dotty the Dog and her lovely owners Lyndsay and Ant. Dotty is a trained PAT dog from Pets as Therapy and she has been visiting different classes since the Autumn term. The children have loved spending time with her and she really has become a part of the Manor Green Primary family. Dotty has really benefited the children overall as she brings such pleasure in her interactions with them, and we have found that over a few weeks, children that have been worried around dogs have become less anxious as they have developed a relationship with her.
