Welcome to the Spring Term in Stag Class

We are Stag class and we are years 5 and 6. Our teacher is Mr McCutcheon. We have many responsibilities now that we are in Upper Key Stage 2, such as being playground leaders, hall monitors and lunch time helpers.

This term we are learning about Africa, with a focus on human rights and human wrongs.  Our story in literacy is Journey to Jo'burg by Beverly Naidoo, which highlights what life was like for the majority of South Africans during Apartheid.  We will also look at the struggles of Nelson Mandela and how his actions changed South Africa. This term we will also be offering the following extras: London residential, youth speaks, swimming gala, World Book Day celebrations, year 5 bikeability, cuppa club, Exmoor challenge walks and an African drumming experience.

Part of our class and school ethos is believing, belonging and becoming. These three B's are part of our every day approach to learning and school life. Below are just a few examples of what these three B's mean to us in Stag Class...



In Stag class:

  • We believe in each other.  We also have our own beliefs whilst respecting the beliefs of others.  
  • We belong to our classroom community, the school community and the Alumnis Mat community and of course the local Bampton community.
  • We will strive to become the best we can, through hard work, as well as living by the school values.
