Oak - Year 6


Welcome to Oak Class

Home Learning

For those learning from home you can find everything you need each day on Microsoft Teams under the 'Files' tab. If you are finding it difficult to access this, contact me on or via Purple Mash.


Class overview

There are 32 children in Oak Class and we are taught in the Lee Building.
Mrs Sofflet is our main teacher but on Tuesday afternoons we are taught Spanish by Ms Hategan and RE by Mrs Sajid. Every other Thursday morning Mrs Holmes teaches us. Mr McKenna and Roger help us with our learning too.



Each of our exciting topics this year will have a geography, history or science focus. Please see the 'Y6 Main Themes' plan below for more details.

This half term's main theme is a history one: The Maya Civilisation. For more information about learning in all areas of the curriculum this half term please see the Summer 2 topic overview below.


Life in Oak Class

In Oak Class, we are keen to learn and make progress. We aim to be well prepared for the move to secondary school in September 2021. 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!


Homework is sent home on a Friday and is due back in by the following Wednesday. Sometimes our Spanish teacher, may give us some Spanish vocabulary to practise, too.


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


We are expected to practise our reading everyday by reading 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 swimming on Tuesdays and outdoor PE will be on Thursdays. We now need to bring a PE kit to school to change into. We could wear a school jumper or plain fleece or tracksuit top and leggings or tracksuit trousers to keep us warm on cooler days.
