Badgers (Year 6)
Our classteacher is Miss Allen. She is really passionate about getting the learning environment right for everyone in the room. "If you're not happy and safe, you won't be able to learn!"
Mr Reilly also comes into class and teaches us maths. This is not because Miss Allen is rubbish at maths but because she has a specialism in English and Mr Reilly has a specialism in maths. This means we get the best education from people who are passionate about their subject. If you would ever like to speak to either of us, please catch us on the door at the end of the day or you can book an appointment through the office.
Every half term, as a parent or carer, you will receive a letter giving you an overview of what we will be learning that half term. You will also receive RKE sheets (Remember, Know, Explore) for each foundation subject we will be focusing on. These RKE sheets let you know in more detail what we will be learning about and key vocabulary which will be coming across.
At Fernhurst Primary School, we are lucky enough to be an accredited Forest School Provider. Mrs Corps, with her band of volunteers and teaching assistants, take a class off site to a local forest we have special permission to use. This site is a hugely valuable opportunity for pupils to the natural world and learn to take risks.
Our class learning:
Year 6 residential to Calshot
In September, we were lucky enough to attend Calshot Activity Centre for an entire week. We learnt to climb huge walls (on the largest climbing wall in Hampshire) sail boats and work together as a team. Not only this but we built more secure friendships which we hope will last forever. See our school photo album for photographs of our visit.
