Welcome to Autumn term in Stag Class

We are Years 5 and 6 and our teacher is Mr. McCutcheon.

In Stag Class we are independent learners who look to show excellence as standard.

We “aim high by trying our best in everything that we do” and we don’t give up, even if we find things difficult. We show a passion and enthusiasm for learning as we start to piece our learning together and build on what we already know.

We are “kind”, “polite” and “helpful”. We are “honest” and “friendly” and we “support each other”. We “respect each other” and we respect our beautiful learning environment.
In our class we particularly enjoy sport, art and maths.

Using the 4 cornerstones of our C360 curriculum (Innovation, Academic, Character and Community) we aim to become Inspiring Changemakers!

What do the 3Bs mean to Stag Class?

“We believe in ourselves.”

“We believe in others.”

“We believe we can do our best.”

“We believe that everyone will become something.”

“We believe that we can become anything.”

“We belong to each other.”

“We belong to our school.”

“We belong to the Devon.”

“We belong to the world.”

“We become better at what we do by learning from mistakes.”

“We become strong and healthy by eating and exercising.”

“We become inspiring changemakers.”

Below is our curriculum plan and other information sent  home with parents and carers.

Character and Community

In Stag class we are working on gaining our inspiring awards before the end of the year.  We have been learning new skills such as singing and map reading. We have been strengthening our local Devon community links by having Mrs. Partridge from Dolton school in to help us learn some new songs.  We have also applied to take part in the Exmoor Challenge this year and we look forward to using our newly learned map reading and compass skills.

Innovate and Academic

In Stag class we are using our Chromebooks a lot to help us research the Poles.  This is helping us with our writing and our artwork.  We wrote Haikus about Polar animals to generate evocative vocabulary which we can use in our adventure story writing later in the term.

In art we have researched Inuit art called Inuksuk.  We have researched using our Chromebook, then used pencil, charcoal and natural materials to recreate their artwork.
