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.

Spring 2020: Investigators

Term Focus: Goals and Dreams/Healthy Me

School Values: Courage, Justice, Self Discipline, Gratitude

Acer Class have an exciting term ahead!

This term we investigate water, rivers and The River Exe in particular.

How are rivers formed and what part do they play on our every day lives? What happens when we turn the tap or flush the toilet? Which wildlife relies on the river for its habitat? We'll learn about each section of a river from its souce to its mouth and everything in between! We plan to visit Exeter Quayside to  see how we have used the river over time. Why should be look after and protect our rivers for the future? How is water cleaned and reused? 

Our popular Science Fair will take place at the end of term when we hope to share our learning with our parents and carers!
