Welcome to Jupiter class! (Years 3 and 4)

Please take a look at our Healthy School page to look at all the hard work Jupiter has put into our school allotment...


The class teacher in Jupiter is Mr Bettesworth and the TAs are Miss Thompson, Mrs McBride and Mrs Wright.

 Learning in Years 3 and 4

Lessons taught in years three and four follow the National

Curriculum. The subjects within the National Curriculum are English,

Maths, Science, Computing, History, Geography, Art, Design

Technology (including Food), Music, Physical Education, PSHE and


Year Three and Four children learn through a topic based creative

curriculum which enables them to make sense of their learning. It is

also important that the children start to take responsibility for their

learning. The children are encouraged to do this with problem solving

tasks and independent research.

St Marks - 2019 

Jupiter class has recently been on their residential trip to St Marks. They had a fantastic time taking part in many activities such as heraldry, archery and a drumming workshop. This is a great trip for the children to grown in confidence and become a little more independent. 

Please take some time to have a look at Jupiter's windows for more photos of the children and what they got up too. 

Here are some quotes and feelings from the children. 

Isla Bidwell - "St Marks College was brilliant, I recommend it, i would rate it 5 stars. It was fun, jolly and excited.

Bibi Anderson-Jones - "I recommend St Marks because it was a great experience."

Poppy Pritchard - "St Marks was an amazing experience and definitely recommend it for other school trips. I loved who i was sharing my bedroom with and liked how we got to bond in the common room."

Archie Smith - "It was amazing sleeping in a new room. The place was amazing!"

Pupil Achievements 

At Ridgewell Primary School we love to celebrate our children's achievements. Some of you might be aware that both Jocelyn Wix and Tula Benwell decided to do a sponsored silence to raise money for Red Nose Day, which they both very kindly donated to the schools total. It was such a kind and thoughtful act we contacted the local papers. The Haverhill Echo has published the article which is fantastic. Take a look at the picture below. 

Annual Litter Pick 

Jupiter class took part in the village's annual litter pick this week. They all done a superb job of keeping our school and the surrounding areas nice and tidy. Thank you to everyone. 

Clay Day 

The children have had a great opportunity this week. Mrs M from Time For Clay came to visit and the children have produced some high quality artwork. The artwork has been linked to the class Topic and the children have produced some beautiful butterflies.
