Welcome to Pyrenees Class
Pyrenees Class contains the current Year 6 children and is taught by Mrs Adams and Miss Austin who share the teaching week.
Children in Pyrenees class are the oldest in the school and are preparing for the next phase in their education; we aim to foster independence and resilience whilst being a close knit team; we look out for each other and support each other in every aspect of school life.
We are proud to offer a wide and varied curriculum and all children have the opportunity to experience learning through a range of practical-based and written tasks in all subjects. We take our learning outside the classroom whenever we can, utilising our grounds, taking an organised visit, orienteering to practise our geographical skills or exploring our local area as part of our learning in history. Further information about our curriculum can be found by following the link at the bottom of this page.
As part of their personal development, we provide opportunities for the Year 6's to take on leadership roles and build a civic awareness. Children in year 6 have the opportunity to work with charities in the local area which we strongly believe develops an awareness of needs within our local community and what our civic responsibilities are. In addition, we add value to our school community by taking on various leadership roles, such as Playleaders who organise activities for younger children during play and lunch times and Reading Buddies, who pair up with children in Alps class to foster a love of reading.
The children in Pyrenees Class, being the oldest in the school, are looked upon as role models by the rest of the school, exemplifying the high expectations in learning behaviour that we want to see in all our children. Our year 6's have the opportunity to earn the role of school Prefect, which brings with it further responsibility in aiding our Head of School with tasks.
A typical day in Pyrenees Class
The school gates open at 8.40am, when the children make their way independently to class. We expect them to be well prepared with all relevant equipment being brought into school. Early morning work is set for the children to complete independently.
Register is taken promptly at 8.50am, after which we begin our school day.
The morning is divided in two; the first part of the morning is given over to learning relating to English. We complete our spelling programme, handwriting activities, and reading and vocabulary work. Our learning in writing is driven by the Talk for Writing programme and is supplemented with 'Take one Book'.
We break mid-morning when the year 6's lead the school in Daily Physical Activity; they choose the music and create a fitness routine to go with it.
After break we carry out our Maths learning; we begin with recalling systematic number facts, practising our mental maths skills and then move on to more deeper learning through practical activities, problem solving and reasoning.
After lunch, we enjoy learning aspects of the wider curriculum, all subjects being taught discretely.

Elf Road Story Mapping 15.09.21
In Literacy learning, we have been busy immersing ourselves into our Portal Story "Elf road". The children have come up with excellent ideas for our class story map. This story map will help them to remember the structure of the story as well as key grammatical features that they will be able to use in their own texts in the coming weeks.
Our first PE session of the new academic year and the children have dived in with great enthusiasm. Children have been busy creating and perfecting their DPA (Daily Physical Activity) dance routine ready to share with the rest of Lady Seaward's School. We can't wait to teach it to all the other year groups. Well done Pyrenees Class!
Welcome back to the pupils and families of Pyrenees class. We have all thoroughly enjoyed our first day back of the Autumn term. As you can see the children have been hard at work in Maths already but who says learning can't be fun?!
