Oak Class (Year 6)

Welcome to Oak Class (The Mighty Oaks!)


In Year 6 we are taught by Mrs Cox Monday to Thursday, Mr Thorne on a Friday.



Welcome to the Spring Term in Year 6.  This term we will be focusing on SATs which take place during week of 13th May.  We will still be continuing with our full curriculum until the end of the school year and have many exciting areas to cover.  Our first main text in English is 'Darwin's Dragons' which is set in the Galapagos Islands.  This links in with our study of Darwin in science - our topic is Evolution and Inheritance - and the study of the Galapagos in geography.        


To find out more detail about what will be learning in each of our subjects please download the 'Curriculum Overview' document below.  You can also download our weekly timetable below.   


PE & Forest School

Children should have their PE kit, including trainers, in school all week.  

The Golden Mile will happen every Tuesday and Friday mornings - all children must wear trainers for this.

We have PE and Leadership with Mrs Javes on a Monday afternoon.  

We do not have forest school in Summer Term 1 - we will have forest school in Summer Term 2 after May half term.



Home work will be set every week on Google Classrooms.  Children are expected to complete a maths and an English task every week.  Sometimes additional subject related work will be given.  In addition, 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.
