Wildcat Island Class
We are a happy and friendly class of 18 year 5 and 6 children, who have a love of life and learning. Our teacher is Miss Rackham and our teaching assistants are Mrs Whitwood, Mrs Rivett and Mrs Grey.
Our class name comes from a place which appears in a series of books written by Arthur Ransome. One of them, Swallows and Amazons, is going to be the first book we read together this year. Our year 5s are going to be the Swallows and our year 6s the Amazons.
In our class we aim to focus on building our knowledge and skills to become independent learners. We encourage each other to progress and we always try our best at everything we do. We also enjoy exploring new topics, taking on new challenges and going on new adventures.
One of our first new adventures is to go sailing as this is something the Swallows and Amazons do lots in the book.
We hope to use this webpage to share some of our exciting experiences, so welcome aboard our learning journey!
