In Oak Class we work as a team to help each other learn, have fun and develop our independence and resilience. We love spending time outside and particularly enjoy creative activities and sports. We are kind to others and have a great attitude to learning. We also enjoy a good joke!
In Year 6, we are encouraged to take more responsibility for our own learning, behaviour and progress. This helps us to become more independent and prepares us for secondary school.
Our teachers help us to have self-belief, self-confidence, the ability to work on our own and as part of a team, and to develop a love of learning.
Our main topics for terms 1 and 2 are the Ancient Greeks and Earth & Space. Please read our term 1 class newsletter to find out more about our learning for this term.
Please remember to read at home three times per week and record this. You now have access to GoRead and can record all of your reading electronically so that I can see how you are getting on! Here's the link to the website: GoRead

There are also lots of books recommended for children in Year 6 on this website.
Remember that it is important to read lots of different types of reading material. This should include non-fiction such as newspapers, recipes and instructions, as well as fiction (stories) and poetry. Just like with food for your body, a balanced diet is the aim!
Do you have some extra time to practise spellings?
Practise your spelling patterns using the Spelling Frame website. Choose Y3/4 if you struggle with spelling and Y5/6 if you are more confident. Here's the link: Spelling Frame
