Oak

Oak class is home to our oldest pupils in school, Year 5 and Year 6.  Our teacher is Mrs Harrison and she is supported by Mrs Hartley.

Our PE days are Thursdays and Fridays. Children can come to school in their PE kit.

 In Oak class we know how important hard work is and every lesson is a new opportunity to challenge ourselves and learn new skills. We really try to be good role models in school and undertake a lot of daily responsibilities. You might see us on the playground in our buddy vests or delivering letters around school.

Year Six responsibilities – Tuesday 12th October 2021

It is National library week and to celebrate our library is now open for business.  Year Six have worked with Mrs Harrison to tidy, sort and prepare before the grand opening this week.
Every library needs a good team, and this year our year 6 children will be taking the lead. Each child has a set day to work and class to support.

Amazing writing – Friday 22nd September

This week, Oak class concluded their work on the Anglo Saxon text Beowulf. After three weeks of learning they planned and wrote their own story around the theme of defeating a monster.  To publish their work, they used the ipads to create an audio recording. We cant upload them all, so as a class, chose our top three.

A visit from an Anglo Saxon – Friday 10th September 2021

To kick off our English and Topic work, we had a visit from an Anglo Saxon!

We heard stories about life during that time and got to explore different artifacts includng weapons. Then we split into groups to try a strategy board game, writing in the Anglo Saxon alphabet and using a shield.

Our visitor was very impressed with our children and the questions they asked during the day. 

“It was lovely to visit such a great school with fabulous staff and wonderful children who engaged so well with the activities. They were a credit to you.”

History into schools staff.
