Yardley Gobion Classes

Please see below for general information about our classes. Please select specific classes for further details on class topics. 

Class 1 - Mrs Parker

Reception and Year 1 join Mrs Parker in Class 1. Mrs Parker is supported by Mrs Getter and Mrs Long. The environment is a vibrant learning space with a fantastic undercover outdoor area accessible for use during the day with mud kitchens, sandpits, water and many fabulous, stimulating and exciting areas of play and development. We strongly believe that all children learn in different ways and the classroom supports this with areas of learning to ensure all children receive an amazing education. 

Class 2 - Miss Bruton

Years 2 & 3 are taught by Miss Bruton supported by Mrs Tunstall. The classroom is a stimulating and ever-changing learning environment. The class is a busy learning environment, in which children excel and are inspired and engaged whilst accessing the curriculum. The children continue their journey to become independent learners, whilst support from their peers creates a 'teamwork' approach to learning. 

Class 3 - Mrs Bennington & Mrs Penn

Years 4 & 5 are taught by Mrs Bennington & Mrs Penn, supported by Mrs Lambert. We enjoy practical learning in maths, as it helps us to understand what we are working on. We also like to do lots of practical science. In our class we learn about mindfulness and meditation to help us relax and to help us to understand each other and ourselves. In our literacy we love listening to and reading stories, then acting them out. We then use these ideas in our own work.

Class 4 - Mr Thompson

Year 6 pupils are taught by Mr Thompson in Class 4. Even though the classroom is more structured, in order to get the children ready for their secondary education, it also offers the children the opportunity to experience different learning zones. Children have plenty of leadership opportunities when running whole school clubs. The growth mindset approach to learning encouraged within the class, helps foster a mature, resilient learning outlook alongside a positive self-image that is key for secondary school.
