Welcome to Oak Class
We hope you had a wonderful summer holiday and are all fully rested and full of energy ready for the autumn term.
This term we are learning about the 'Mysterious Mayans'. We have launched our learning theme with the children creating large scale Mayan mosaic masks which look truly spectacular. We will be finding out about where the Mayans were from, their belief system, daily life and the explorers who discovered Mayan landmarks. We will also investigate what life is like in modern day Mexico and we will use atlases and secondary sources to help us.
P.E - Year 6 are swimming during this first half term on a Monday. Please ensure your child's P.E kit is in school everyday. To also help with the children's fitness levels we are completing a 5 minute run on most mornings.
Science - Our science this term is 'Classification, Evolution and Identification'.
Homework - In Year 6 the children will be issued with English homework on a Monday and Maths homework on a Tuesday. Both sets of homework will need to be completed by the Friday and handed in so they can be marked. If you need any further help or explanation please come and discuss this with us.
Year 6 have a number of exciting events and roles/responsibilities to look forward to this year such as Derbyshire and the summer performance. This term there will be a theatre trip (details to follow soon) and the children have been invited to apply for a variety of roles and responsibilities.
We are available on the playground in the morning and after school for you to come and talk to us, if you wish to discuss something of a more confidential matter or you need a longer length to discuss matters then please make an appointment through the school office.
