Year 6 – Oak Class

Welcome to Oak Class.

Oak Class is our fantastic Year 6 class, taught by Mrs Collins, and supported by Mr Thomas, Miss Darby and Miss Scott!

In our class, we learn with enthusiasm and work together to create amazing outcomes!

During the summer term, Year 6 will take part in a number of exciting experiences, from the Key Stage 2 tests at the beginning of the term, to the fun of the L-Factor and our sleepover in the final half term! There will be ‘move-up’ days at their chosen secondary schools and lots of creative opportunities in their wider curriculum subjects.

In Science we are going to study the natural world learning all about the classification of living things.

In Maths, we will be focusing on  revision, reflecting on what we already know and what we need to work on – particularly
around our understanding of fractions, decimals and
percentages.

PE takes place on Mondays and Thursdays. PE kits need to be worn all day.

Our class novel this term will be ‘Holes’, by Louis Sachar – Mrs Collins’ favourite book – and this will form the basis of many of our reading lessons.

Homework is set every Friday, and collected in on a Wednesday. Children are given time in class to review and discuss answers, so it’s important that they have had the opportunity to attempt the work set, as it is designed to support the learning we’re doing in class.

Later this year, we will be completing the End of Key Stage 2 Statutory Assessments, so we will gradually begin to practise some test questions in creative and fun ways. Reading at home is the BEST preparation for these tests, so it’s important that we share and read books at home to improve our stamina and comprehension.

Thanks for reading about us! If you ever want to come and visit, please do! We’re a friendly bunch
