Welcome to Oak Class
Happy New Year to you all!
We hope you had a wonderful Christmas and New Year and are all fully rested and but full of energy ready for the spring term.
This term we are learning about the ‘The Battle of Britain'. We have launched our learning theme with the children creating their own gas mask and box; followed by an air raid experience. We will be finding out about what life was like in Britain during the war years; in particular the Blitz, evacuation and rationing and we will use primary and secondary sources to help us.
P.E - Year 6 are lucky to have a football coach during this first half term on Tuesdays and he is working on a range of games skills and team work. Please ensure your child's P.E kit is in school every day. 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 ‘The Human Body'.
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 to look forward to this term; 12 children visiting Spain, a trip to Duxford to enhance our learning about the Second World War, and as part of our real life outcome for our learning theme we are hoping to take the children to a local residential care home to perform war time songs – details to follow later in the term.
We are also hosting after school revision sessions for identified children in the year group. In school, we will be leading intervention with individual children and focusing on developing on the key skills they will need to prepare the children for the SATs in May.
We will host a parents’ meeting in the spring term to give you helpful advice and tips.
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.
