Class 4 is a mixed-age Year 4 and Year 5 class, taught by Miss Sawyer and supported by Mrs Poulter. The main focus of each and every day is for children to try their utmost, put in their best effort and to challenge themselves. Children will accept that they will not always succeed, but have the courage to try again and be resilient in the face of failure in a safe and supportive environment. To make the curriculum fun and interesting, lessons are made stimulating and relevant and target pupil's personal needs for learning.
Miss Sawyer studied for her undergraduate degree at the University of St Andrews, gaining a BSc (Hons) in Management. She began her teaching career a year later, receiving a PGCE Primary Mathematics Specialist qualification from the University of Worcester. Her teaching philosophy is to respect and understand each child as an individual, nurture children’s natural curiosity through engaging lessons and develop independent thinkers and problem-solvers. Outside of school, she is part of a Herefordshire soul/gospel choir and spends as much time as possible exploring the outdoors.
