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 'Groovy Greeks'. We are launching our learning theme with the children creating spectacular mythical masks. We will be finding out about the legacy of the Ancient Greeks and their influence on the Western world, their beliefs, daily life and their achievements. We will also investigate what life is like in modern day Greece and we will use atlases and secondary sources to help us. At the end of the term we will be hosting a Greek Taverna for families to come and sample our Greek foods and share in our learning of the term.
P.E - Year 6 are swimming during this first half term on a Monday. Please ensure your child's correct P.E kit is in school every day. To also help with the children's fitness levels we are completing an active start to each morning.

R.E – We will be studying Sikhism
PSHE – We will be discussing the NSPCC’s PANTS rule and using this to help us understand appropriate and inappropriate touch, healthy & unhealthy relationships and also trusted adults you can turn to for help. We will also be studying online safety.
Homework - In Year 6 the children will be issued with English and maths homework on a Monday and 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, Spain and the summer performance. In Upper Phase all 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.
