Each class at Drybrook Primary is named after a tree natively found in the Forest of Dean. Pine class is home to years 3 and 4. Pine trees are sun-loving and don't grow well in shady conditions. In Pine class, we always strive to do our very best and achieve together, and we know that this can only happen if we keep our potential in the light.
