Year 6 Class Charter
As you know, at the beginning of the new school year we set up our new class charters. By doing this, we aim to support a positive learning environment in our classrooms and the wider life of our school.
This important element of our classrooms, outlines your unconditional rights as children and aims to promote responsible behaviours through respecting our own rights and those of our classmates.
We know that you have had the opportunity to assist in the development of your classes charters in past years, so we are again aiming to develop the most effective charters to make our classrooms into the best learning environments for everyone.
Today, it is your job to have a careful look through the rights/articles below. Once you have read through them all, you need to choose your top 3 rights/articles for our class charter. Whilst you are reading them, you need to think why you are choosing specific rights/articles as you will need to explain your choices too.
1. I am choosing Article -- because ...
2. I am choosing Article -- because ...
3. I am choosing Article -- because ...
Nobody knows YOUR class better than YOU. Therefore, you need to explain your choices using detail.
You could even use Point, Evidence, Explanation (PEE) for your response to this!
It is vitally important that everyone completes the task as this will be your pledge to our class charters in Year 6.
You need to record your choices in an email on Purple Mash and send it to Miss Wallace or Mr Grimshaw.
