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.

Autumn 2019: Time Travellers

Term Focus: Being Me in My World/Celebrating Difference

School Values: Courage, Justice, Self Discipline, Gratitude

Acer Class have an exciting term ahead!

Our learning this term takes us to the shores of Ancient Greece where we will discover the legacy of history, culture, art and science this ancient civilisation has left the modern world. 

We will investigate the Athenian and Spartan life and compare the two. Who would you rather be? An intellectual and wise Athenian living in comfort? Or an athletic Spartan, living in the harshest conditions? 

Our scientific studies will include an examination of the classification of animals and the characterisitics of living things. We will also explore the workings of the human body and what we should do to keep ourselves healthy.
