Welcome to Year 5 and 6 > Oak Class




This term we are very excited to be learning about New York. We will be learning all about the buildings, music, art and geography of the city, as well as North and South America. We will be looking at the prodigal son and how it can help us with forgiveness, respect and acceptance, we will be creating some wonderful patterns inspired by designers and creating some bridges, flying objects and inventions inspired by great architects!

In Oak class, we love Maths, reading and English because we are challenged to try our best and have great times learning in a creative topic based way! We will be focusing on a range of skills and growing our knowledge of reading, grammar and arithmetic throughout the year!

We are getting to grips with our Tackling Tables challenge, with everyone of our class on green level. We now have no children on blue level and we even have a few who have completed all of the tackling tables resources!

We will be continuing to learn to play as an ensemble with our weekly recorder lessons and learning outdoors every Wednesday at Mount Amelia.

We work hard in school and out of school, handing in our homework every Friday ready to receive our house points before Sharing Assembly.
