Adventure Class

Welcome to our class, we are all proud to be members of Team Adventure.

The staff who work in our class are Senor Gamez (Teacher) and Miss Walton (Teaching Assistant). As a team, we learn to work collaboratively by solving problems, sharing ideas, supporting each other and having open discussions with the teaching staff.

Our classroom backs onto our playing fields, quarry and woodland area. We enjoy direct access to our outside area, which we use as an extension to our classroom, and make full use of our great learning environment. The majority of our learning is cross-curricular and experienced over six half month topics which we call learning experiences. These include 'Crime and Punishment'; 'The Maya in the Americas' and 'Planet Earth'.

To put our learning in context and bringing meaning to it, we make use of a wide variety of resources, hands-on artefacts and visual aids. We also experience a wide variety of trips and have the opportunity to work with specialist teachers in music, computing, horse-riding, PE and swimming.

We are developing our knowledge across both Key Stage 2 and Key Stage 3 curricula in preparation for transition to the next stage in the pupils’ education.

We are fortunate to go on some amazing trips, especially residentials which we are looking forward to.  We are also learning to interact with others in fun, educational activities with local schools. 

We are learning: Autumn Term

Our first learning experience in September will be 'Crime and Punishment'. During the half term, we will be finding out about the history and development of crime and punishment. We will be investigating the history of crimes, and the sanctions used as deterrents, from the Romans through to the present day. To support our engagement with the topic and deepen our knowledge, we will be visiting the former prison at Shepton Mallet to discover its 400-year history and having a CSI Day.

We will be examining some of the structures and devices that were used as punishments and will gain inspiration from the stocks in North Cheriton to make replica models. 

In Art, we will ask the question; 'Is Graffiti vandalism or art?' and study the works of Keith Haring and Banksy.

Narrative poems will be the focus of our English lessons and we will use inspiration from Alfred Noyes' 'The Highwayman' to write our own.
