Oak - Year 6



There are 33 children in Oak Class. Mrs Sofflet teaches us Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays and Mrs Halford teaches us on Thursdays. 

Mrs Spight, Miss Gourley and Mrs Tanega (Teaching Assistants) support some of us with our learning and Roger kindly volunteers to help us each week too.


Life in Oak Class

In Oak Class, we are keen to learn and make progress. We work hard but also know how to have fun! We enjoy all the curriculum subjects and are a very creative bunch! We love to read and be read to. We can work independently but there are many opportunities for us to work collaboratively too. We support each other and the children and staff in our classroom make a great team!



As well as practising reading, spelling and number facts regularly, we are given a menu of activities to choose from each half term. We are expected to complete at least 3 of these activities over the half term and should hand each one in as it is completed. Now that we are in Year 6, we will also have a maths activity to complete each week.



Spellings are sent home on a Friday and we will be tested on the words the following Friday. It will really help us if we practise our spellings every week!



We are expected to practise our reading everyday by aiming to read at least 10 pages. It helps us if parents talk to us about what we are reading. For fiction texts, we could discuss the genre, plot, characters, endings, language used etc. For non-fiction texts, examples of things we could talk about include the type of text, its purpose, audience and structure.



We will be taught to play cricket with a 'Chance to Shine' visiting coach on Thursday mornings. We need to bring a PE kit to school to change into. 

This half term we will have swimming on the following dates:

Wednesday 5th June

Thursday 13th June

Thursday 20th June

Tuesday 25th June

Thursday 11th July

Thursday 18th July

We will therefore need to bring a swimming costume/shorts and a towel on those days. Goggles and swimming hats are optional.  As in all PE lessons, long hair will need to be tied back and jewellery removed.
