Years 5 and 6 work together under the direction of the class teacher Mr Murray, with the support and help of Mrs Herbert. Together they make sure that we have access to a rich and varied curriculum with support and encouragement where necessary.
The children in our care will each have had unique experiences of and responses to the events of 2020/2021. This has been a year of significant world events, disrupting and changing the ways of life of people across the globe.
Every morning we talk, think, investigate and practise our maths skills and understanding. We read both independently and as a class. 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.
Every year the PTFA very kindly gives us some money to spend on resources for the classroom. This money is essential to help us buy all those "extra" bits and bobs that really help the children to engage in their learning and bring that learning to life. The fundraising ideas are always inventive and great fun for all involved.
