Welcome to Oak Class!
Welcome to the year 6 class page!
Happy New Year to you all! We hope you've had a fantastic Christmas break with your families and friends. This half term, to build upon our Victorian topic, the children will be learning about Underwood as a locality and will explore how and why it has changed, since Victorian times. If you have any information or photographs that document these changes we would really appreciate you sharing them with us.
To make sure that the year goes well for you child in maths, please support them with the following at home:
-Regular practise of times tables (very important).
- Providing opportunities to practise mental arithmetic in real life situations. - Encouraging you child to follow recipes and measure out ingredients.
To encourage the development of your child' skills in English here are a few things that you can do at home to support your child as they learn:
- Listening to them read of a regular basis and discussing their reading material with them.
- Supporting them as they learn their weekly spellings.
- By encouraging you child to write at home about a topic of interest.
P.E. lessons take place on a Tuesday and Friday but please ensure that P.E. kits are in school all week as sometimes the days change to accommodate the curriculum.
Each week your child will be set a piece of maths and spellings homework (that includes spelling sentences). These will be set on a Thursday and should be completed by the following Wednesday.
We are very much looking forward to a fun-filled term! If you have any questions at
all please feel free to pop in and see us.
Mrs. Wilson and Mrs. Raynor
