Exe Valley


Exe Class are a mixed age class of Year 4 and Year 5 children, taught by Mrs Roper and Mrs Lewis, supported by a team of Teaching Assistants over the week (Mrs Bradford, Ms Bloch, Miss Finch, Mr Pope and Mrs Thresher). 

In Exe Class, we work hard to become increasingly independent learners. We think carefully about our own individual learning journey and develop a range of learning behaviours to help us.  Each term our learning is led by a history, geography or science topic where we weave the threads of that theme creatively and purposefully through other subjects as much as possible.  Please see the learning webs for more details. 

Our main homework focus is reading (being listened to by an adult or by an adult discussing their child’s reading book with them).  Our aim is for all children to find their great love of reading and be able to share that with others.  Another big focus for us is the learning of all multiplication tables.  We have checks each week in class and children have logins for TTRockstars for home use.  We also recommend Mathsframe for extra practice.  Our spelling check day is Friday for weekly spellings.
