Evergreen

The Evergreens class is for our year 5 and 6 pupils. Mrs Morley is the class teacher, supported by Miss Piper.  Pupils in Evergreens take on many responsibilities within the school, such as being 'school ambassadors', 'reading buddies', 'sports leaders' and operating the Audio Visual equipment in our whole-school worship times.

For our children at the top end of the school, developing a greater sense of ownership of their learning is vitally important. Our Evergreen pupils will regularly be involved in assessing their work alongside the teacher and using this to gain a clear understanding of their progress. As the pupils at the top end of the school there is a strong awareness of the demands of the National Curriculum tests, which are taken in Year 6. Pupils work hard alongside Mrs Morley and Miss Piper to prepare for these end of Key Stage 2 tests, regularly monitoring their progress towards them.

Our Year 6 pupils also spend time throughout the year preparing to move on to the next stage of their education into secondary school. We work very closely with all of the local secondary schools and academies to ensure that this transition is a positive and exciting experience for our children.

The Evergreen class enjoy a 5 day residential experience, once every two years, which is always a wonderful opportunity for them to develop and grow in confidence, independence, teamwork and creative problem solving.

 Our focus for this term: Rye - A Local History Study.

  • Our learning journey this term is all about Rye. We will be using maps, compasses and grid references in our geography lessons as well as researching out ancient town. We will be asking ourselves: Why certain buildings were built? Who significant individuals/people were? What significant events happened? We will also be going on a trip to Rye Harbour to investigate how Rye has changed over time, and what caused this to happen.
  • In science we will be studying light. The children will be taking on the roles of forensic investigators, who are examining the evidence left behind by a laptop thief. We will need around 15 tall juice cartons, like the Tropicana size, if we could please start bringing them in to school

 

Please could we have:

Any local artifacts, books or photographs.
