Class 4 Information

Class 4 is where the journey through Landscove reaches its finale. The class is taught by Mrs Neville and Miss Capaldi. Mr Tanner is in on Monday to lead PE.
We are looking forward to an exciting year, including a residential with lots of adventures along the way.
In this class, the aim is to fully prepare the children for what lies ahead when they take those first steps away from Landscove onto the next part of their educational journey. It’s always an interesting time watching the children grow and prepare for their futures. We hope that we have planted lots of seeds that will flourish!
