Welcome to Oak Class!
Welcome to the year 6 class page!
We hope you've all had an enjoyable half term break. This half term Oak Class are starting a new topic called Mountain Environments. This topic has a geography focus and will enable the children to learn about mountain ranges throughout the world as they explore key questions to find out how these spectacular features are formed, what conditions are like in such environments and what climates can be expected.
To kick start the topic we are looking forward to sharing the homework that the children have done over the holidays to begin the topic with enthusiasm and a thirst to find out more!
A little reminder that our Time Travelling trip takes place on Thursday 8th March
This half term the children will be focusing upon the following areas:
Data handling, answering worded problems using addition, subtraction, division and multiplication, using known number facts (especially times tables), coordinates and written arithmetic strategies.
Our focus in English this half term will be on the following areas:
story writing techniques, explanation texts and discursive texts, spelling punctuation and grammar and comprehension skills.
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
