The best thing about Cedar Class is how we are able to appreciate our differences and unique characteristics. Everybody works as hard as they can, and we enjoy pushing our learning further from our comfort zone. We aim to achieve the ambitious targets we set ourselves in order to improve across the curriculum. We want to end our Blue School journey in the most positive fashion.
In Cedar Class, we want our fellow students and teachers to know how we are feeling, so we can get help if we need it. We use Zones of Regulation to show whether we are feeling excited or optimistic about the day, or whether we are feeling tired or unwell. This is a very important resource in our classroom, which allows us to express ourselves.
Our curriculum is rich and varied, following a mastery approach in mathematics and a rewarding programme of English with fascinating texts, which challenge and inspire. We study important historical events such as the Civil Rights Movement and Twentieth Century Conflicts. Children learn about diverse figures in the world of art and design, from Vivienne Westwood to Yayoi Kusama. During Lockdown, Cedars showed their outstanding knowledge of Parliament, in a workshop led by people who work in Westminster. Furthermore, we displayed our excellent knowledge of online safety, when we took part in an online seminar on cybercrime and security. PC Dave, who led the seminar, was astonished at the extent of Cedar’s knowledge concerning online crime and how to protect themselves against fraudulent activity.
