Welcome to Apple Class
We have a fabulous team working in Year Six. Mrs Middlemast is the teacher in Apple Class, Mr Warren is the teacher in Cherry Class and Mrs Rhodes assists both classes. Y6 are also supported by Mrs Brailsford.
In Apple Class we work extremely hard to ensure that children leave Oakhill Primary School having achieved the best they can in all areas. We encourage children to become resilient, independent learners.
The Year 6 classes are mixed for Maths, this enables us to provide a personalised curriculum for all. We us Master Maths to ensure full coverage of the national curriculum whilst also providing challenges for children of all abilities. Maths homework will be given each week and is expected to be completed to a high standard and returned to school on time.
We continue to challenge the children to learn their times tables as this is a very important skill and will help greatly with work in class. The children should continue to use Times Table Rock Stars to help them.
Our learning will take place around a variety of texts, including Kensuke's Kingdom and Running Wild. There will be a big focus on SPAG (spelling, grammar and punctuation) throughout the year as this is an area that the children will be tested on in May as part of SATS. Please support your child by encouraging them to read and practise their spellings.
We are working hard to develop a love of reading in Year Six. We encourage children to read daily and rewards are given to those who get their diary signed by an adult. Reading Diaries should be brought in daily.
Alumno Curriculum (Topic)
We have lots of exciting topics to investigate this year.
Anglo-Saxons and Vikings
Humans and Animals (including the human body and evolution)
We are planning several trips and visits over the year. This is to give children first hand experiences to support their learning. We will be visiting Tatton Park for an Anglo-Saxon day and will also enjoy a post-SATS treat: a trip to Alton Towers. At the end of the year we are booked in on our annual residential trip to Stanley Head. We are also working with our feeder high schools to provide the children with an experience of a high school.
Things To Remember
P.E. sessions will be on Monday (dance) until October half term. All children are expected to take part in this area of the curriculum wearing the correct P.E kit - yellow/white t-shirt, black shorts/tracksuit bottoms and trainers/pumps. It is vital that children bring the correct kit into school as this counts towards their uniform point.
Water- we encourage the children to bring a water bottle into school daily.
Homework- all children are expected to complete and return homework on time. Rewards are given to children who complete homework to a high standard. English and Maths homework are given out on a Friday and are due in the following Friday. Spellings are given out on Fridays too and will be tested the following week.
Reading books and diaries need to be in school daily. Every Friday, Cherry Class hold a reading raffle where children who have had their diaries signed that week have the chance to win books to take home and keep.
Dojo points are given to children who arrive at school on time in the correct uniform following the school rules.
Remember our door is always open.
