Welcome to Oak Class!
Welcome to the year 6 class page!
This half term will be a very busy and exciting one in for year 6. Our new topic will be 'Invaders and Settlers' and we will learn about settlements, Romans, Anglo Saxons and Vikings in a range of fun, exciting and cross curricular ways.
In maths, this half term, the children will develop their knowledge and understanding in the following topics: Calculator skills, problem solving and shape investigations.
Mathletics is going well in year 6 and the children are enjoying using this as a learning platform at home and school. Children are encouraged to use Mathletics at home each week to consolidate their understanding of concepts that they have been taught in class.
Over the half term, the children will continue to focus upon specific spelling, punctuation and grammar as well as writing explanation texts, play scripts, short stories, diary extracts and recounts. Please continue to support your child by hearing them read regularly as this makes a big difference to their progress at school.
P.E. lessons take place on a Tuesday and Thursday but please ensure that P.E. kits are in school all week as sometimes the days change to accommodate the curriculum.
This half term the weekly homework will be topic or science based to encourage the children to confidently research and record key facts and information. This will be set on a Thursday and should be completed by the following Wednesday.
We are very much looking forward to a fun-filled half term! If you have any questions at
all please feel free to pop in and see us.
Mrs. Wilson and Mrs. Raynor
