Chough

 

Welcome to Chough Class!

 

We have our fantastic Year 3 and 4 children in Chough Class, with our teacher Mrs Elsden and teaching assistant Mrs Blake

Choughs are proud to represent the blackbird in our school emblem and enjoy a lovely bright, spacious classroom which over looks our village Church.  As the children journey through Lower KS2, they develop their independence; are supported with lessons and develop their essential learning powers to take pride in their work and achieve the best they can. We encourage all children to make the most of every opportunity in and out of the classroom; but most all to keep reading…!
