Welcome to Ezra Class. We have been named after George Ezra ‘the famous English singer, songwriter, and musician’.
Your child’s class teacher’s name is Mrs. Mohideen and Mr. Cummins and Ms. Bishop will be supporting your child’s learning throughout this year. This year is going to have some great topics and children will be learning about Charles Darwin, World War 2, Frozen Kingdom, Blood Heart, Hola Mexico and Gallery Rebels. An exciting year of learning I am sure you agree.
In Ezra Class we encourage children to be independent and role models, so we have job monitors: The children are chosen fairly and they are given jobs such as: I leaders, house captain, Ubuntu Leader, School Councillor, Peer Teaching, Book Corner Monitor and Register Monitor.
We celebrate positive behaviour by using various reward systems. Some of the behaviour management systems are: Good to be Green system, stickers and Dojo points (which is a whole school reward system where teachers of other classes can reward your child for positive behaviour) and also lots of photos of them promoting positive behaviour.
We will be learning about British values, which links very well with our school value of ‘Ubuntu’, which believes ‘I am, because you are, because we are’.
The Year 6 curriculum is made of:
Our planning is very cross-curricular and ensures it inspires and motivates children to be active learners.
Important things for you to remember:
Homework – We send the Homework out Wednesday and it needs to be returned on Monday.
Reading Journals – Your child needs to bring their reading books in every day to ensure they have it for when we listen to them read.
PE kits – PE days are on Wednesday and Friday . PE kits need to be brought in on Monday.
We hope that your child enjoys their time at school and has fun learning lots of new and exciting things!
Please feel free to speak with us at the end of your child’s day if you have any questions for us, however if there is something urgent do not hesitate to speak to us in the morning if it is likely to affect your child’s ability to learn.
