Years 5 and 6 work together under the direction of the class teacher Miss Bancroft, with the support and help of Mrs Pearce and Mrs Dilibero. Together this team make sure that we have access to a rich and varied curriculum with support and encouragement where necessary.
Every morning we talk, think, investigate and practice our maths skills and understanding. We read both independently and as a class. As part of our topic web for this term - Powerful People - we will be: reading 'Holes' by Louis Sachar; creating our own pieces of art in the style of Frida Kahlo; designing pin hole cameras; composing and playing our own piece of 'Hoe Down' music based upon Rodeo by Aaron Copland; studying light and shadows and understanding how the human eye works; and studying the geography of North America and the history of crime and punishment.
In Oak Class we also have opportunities to sing in the school choir, learn to play musical instruments and partake in out-of-school activities. We take on roles of responsibility as House and Sports Captains and as members of the School Council. We continue to develop as independent learners and thinkers. We make links across the curriculum and ground our learning in real life situations so that it makes sense to us and is relevant to the way we live now as well as preparing us for the future.
