Year 5/6 - Indigo

  • Welcome to Year Five/Six – Indigo Class.

    Welcome to Indigo Class where Mr Matthew Barnard and Mrs Gemma Dower are the Class Teachers and Mrs Claire Blackford and Mrs Elizabeth Tregidgo are the Teaching Assistants.  The children follow the expectation of the National Curriculum and the learning is carefully planned to ensure that all children are motivated and excited to learn.



Every Friday morning, Indigo class have visited Swanpool Beach. We are completing a Swim Safe award and have learnt all about safety in the sea. We have also been Paddle boarding, Coasteering and jumped off the rocks. In three weeks we have gained some invaluable life skills and it has been fantastic to see the children's confidence flourish! 
In Geography, we have learnt all about OS maps. We have used contour lines to decipher the relief of Falmouth. We have studied the Human and Physical features of our local area. The children were amazed at the size of the OS maps and enjoyed comparing their maps to Google Earth. 
Indigo class have been reading Coraline. We used thought bubble flashback scenes to recreate her memories of being chased by wasps. Can you guess what each character is thinking and feeling?
