Welcome to Oak Class!

We are Year 6s and our teacher is Miss Harris. Our teaching assistant is Mrs Griffin.

Hello and a very warm welcome to Oak class! 

We are a class full of wonderful Year 6 children and we are very lucky to have a wonderful classroom to work in. In Oak class, there is a very high level of expectation to be the best learners we can be and we try our hardest in all areas of the curriculum. Oak class is an exciting year as there are lots of opportunities for more responsibilities and be role models to the younger children in the school. We will use our gem powers to be the best learners we can be which include perseverance, asking for help, bouncing back from disappointment and defeating monster distractions! As well as the incredible units, we will be delving deeper into high quality texts through our English lessons and developing our oracy and reasoning skills in Maths lessons. We will have the occasional SATs paper to practice but we’re all going to stick together and know it doesn’t define us as learners or as individuals.  

This year (2022-2023) we will be learning more about some of the following topics: 

History 

  • The rise of the Roman Empire and its impact on Britain 
  • Ancient Egyptians 
  • World War 2 

Science 

  • Light 
  • Our circulatory system 
  • Evolution 
  • Properties and changes of materials 

Geography 

  • Locational knowledge and developing geographical skills 
  • Civil rights and freedom 
  • Natural hazards such as volcanoes, earthquakes… 
  • Renewable energy and sustainability 

Art and DT 

  • Food 
  • 3D art 
  • Drawing skills 
  • Mechanical systems 
  • Collage 

We are really looking forward to learning as much as we can and enjoying this curriculum which has lots of opportunities for ‘hands on learning’.  

Miss Harris and Oak Class.
