All About Aldridge Class

Welcome to Aldridge Class.  Our class is named after John Aldridge who was one of the Great Bardfield Artists.  He lived in Place House in Great Bardfield and spent a lot of his time painting landscapes around the village.  He liked to use oil paints and we have created our own landscape paintings using oil pastels.

We have an amazing classroom with a cosy reading area where we sit among the plants and work really hard to improve our reading, although it is so nice here that it doesn’t really feel that we are working hard at all.  We know that the more we read the better we get and then there are some really amazing and cool books to learn from.  One of these is on the skeleton, and as we really like science (and would like to make explosions) this is helping us to investigate the human skeleton and muscles.  After all, if we didn’t have muscles and a skeleton we would be like a lump of jelly and wouldn’t have been able to paint our pictures!

Every year on the Friday preceding Remembrance Sunday our Year 6 pupils visit the war memorial in the village to lay a wreath on behalf of our school community. The wreath is laid by our Head Boy and Girl each year and this time it was the turn of Dylan and Martha.
