Class 6 - Autumn 1

This term in class 6 we have been taking a nurture based approach. We have been working hard on developing coping strategies and resilience when meeting challenging situations and developing a love for learning. Through this we have begun to talk about our class family and how we interact with each other and those around school. 
Since September our class group has changed and grown and we have been welcoming and adaptable to each new challenge that we have faced. Our children are among the most vulnerable in our area so we always promote kindness and model appropriate behaviours, giving the group vital skills for later life. 
In our maths lessons we have been focusing on number, which includes place value and the 4 operations, addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. In English we have looked at the William Shakespeare play Julius Caesar, which crossed over into our humanities lessons around Ancient Rome and Italy and then written an alternative ending to a traditional tail. We have written in many forms from newspaper articles, letters, dialogue and written creatively in our POW lessons developing many skills and practiced ones we already knew. In science we enjoyed learning about plants and biodiversity. While in PE we have had the opportunity to use our brand new gym which has been very popular. The class have also had many nurture lessons, which have been both creative and thought provoking, developing communication and social skills.
The children have also had lots of opportunities to go on trips, some have been scuba diving and trampolining and we have also had many trips to the park and one very windy walk in the wild.
We have unconditional positive regard for all the children in our school and we are very proud that this is a whole school approach. We care deeply about each child and want them to reach their potential. We will strive to do this and look forward to seeing class 6 continue to grow and develop.
