Oak - Year 6


Welcome to Oak Class

Class overview

There are 30 children in Oak Class and we are taught in the Lee Building.
Mrs Sofflet teaches us everyday except Tuesday afternoons when we are taught Spanish by Ms Hategan and RE by Mrs Millard. Mrs Millard also supports us in some maths and English lessons. 



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 geography one: "Extreme Environments". For more information about learning in all areas of the curriculum this half term please see the Autumn 1 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 shool 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.


On days we have PE (Mondays and Thursdays), we should come to school in our PE kits and wear them for the whole day. We could wear a school jumper or plain fleece or tracksuit top and leggings or tracksuit trousers to keep us warm on cooler days.
