Who works in the class?
In the autumn term, we study in depth World War 2 and the ramifications of what transpired. This is taught through our creative curriculum; which allows us to get a broader understanding of the subject in a fun, informative way. We will study the street artist Banksy and link our learning to world news: conflict in Syria. This allows us to deepen our understanding of the world around us and enable us to impersonate a modern, local artist's work. In addition to this, the children will experience a variety of new sports through PE including: tag rugby, lacrosse and dodgeball! Year 6 have a week-long, residential trip to the Isle of Wight which is a highlight of the year!
Class Rules and Expectations:
Behaviour, manners and team work are our main class rules. There is an extremely high level of expected behaviour in St Cecilia's. All children must adhere to the behavioural policy set out in the classroom. All children are expected to dress smartly at all times. Shirts MUST be tucked in and ties should be on straight. Finally, children are actively encouraged to work collaboratively in order to build and strengthen friendship groups across the class.
- Each night three pieces of homework will be set: Reading, Spellings and Maths.
- Reading: a minimum of 20 pages or 20 minutes (30 on weekends).
