Welcome to Drake's Website Page! We have a great group of children taught by Mr Snow and assisted by Mrs Wakefield. We are also really lucky to be taught R.E and art by the ever-so-talented Miss Keary and our outdoor provision (and bonus maths sessions) by Mr Curnow.
In Drake Class the children of Year 5 and 6 are given the opportunity to take risks with their learning. We aim to provide challenge and interest by linking our themes to real-life opportunities in all areas of the curriculum. We pride ourselves in the links we make in the community both locally and nationally and we do this by planning key events into our curriculum each year.
During their time in Year 5 and 6 - and depending on whether Covid-19 guidance allows it - the children get two fantastic opportunities to go on residentials:
London for the Year 5s where they visit Harry Potter Studios, a range of museums, eat out in a restaurant and then take in a West-end show!
Grenville - an adventure centre in Brixham - for the Year 6s where they take part in a full range of adventurous activities including: abseiling, climbing, high ropes, team building, orienteering, raft building, caving and canoeing!
Year 5 and 6 pupils also have opportunities for roles and responsibilities where they develop leadership and independence skills and model our six school and Christian values - Teamwork, Kindness, Respect, Honesty, Forgiveness and Faith.
We promote healthy bodies and healthy minds and the children are given the chance to take part in numerous sporting and physical events which stretch both body and minds.
