Welcome to Acer Class

Mr Jeremy Davy is delighted to welcome you to Acer Class!

Acer is a class of Year 5 and 6 children and, as the oldest children in the school, we take our responsibilites very seriously. We always work hard and strive to 'Aim High, Achieve the Best' every day. Mr Davy is supported by Teaching Assistant Mrs Clare Breading.

Learning in Acer Class

Acer Class is a class of Year 5 and 6 children who take part in a huge range of experiences and activities throughout a very busy year. Children are always challenged through a broad curriculum which is current, relevant, engaging - and FUN !

We encourage all our children to be independent learners, to think deeply about their learning and to be resilient when the going gets tough.

We encourage children to develop a sense of respect and responsibility for themselves, their peers, their school and the wider world. We liaise closely with local High Schools to prepare children for their transition into Year 7.

Year 6 SATS Tests take place in May each year and the children are thoroughly prepared for the experience.

Our residential at Hooke Court in Dorset and activity days at Haven Banks are great experiences for all our children. We take part in a range of exciting activities from orienteering and cooking to launching our own rockets!

Our PE afternoons are TUESDAY and WEDNESDAY - please ensure children have their kit in school.

Homework is set on FRIDAY and is due in the following WEDNESDAY.

Many thanks for your continued support.

Acer Class have an exciting term ahead!

This term we will be studying Great Britain and Europe examining both the   physical and human geography of the continent. We will learn to read maps, use a compass and research a chosen country. We will be writing a non-chronological report on our country, practicing the correct style and formality required.

Our science investigations this term will be based on the forces of gravity, friction, magnetism and air resistance. Look out for falling parachutes, balloon rockets and aerodynamic car designs! Later in the term we will be holding a  Science Fair where we plan to display our findings to parents and carers.
