Oak Class (Year 6)
Welcome to Oak Class (The Mighty Oaks!)
In Year 6 we are taught by Mrs Cox (Mon-Thurs) and Mrs Burns (Friday). Mrs Collins is our teaching assistant.
During Autumn Term 2 we will be continuing our 'Britain at War: The Home Front' topic but extending it to cover Remembrance Day, WW1 and D-Day. To find out more about what we are learning across all of our subjects please download the 'Curriculum Overview' document below. To see photographs of what we have been up this term to please scroll down this page.
Learning at Home (in the event of self isolating)
For children who are having to self isolate at home, daily learning will be uploaded to our Google Classroom.
PE & Forest School
We have PE with Mrs Javes on a Wednesday afternoon. We will have forest school every Thursday Morning.
Home work will be set on Google Classrooms. In addition to set homework, children are expected to read every night and do regular spelling and times-table practice. Spelling tests will take place on a Monday and Times Table tests on a Friday. Parental support and encouragement with this is key to success.
Visit the 'English at Woolhampton' page for lists of recommended reading books.
Have a good at 'ReadTheory' to help improve your reading comprehension skills.
SATs are scheduled to take place 9th - 12th May 2022.
