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.
This term will be another busy term for our Year 6 children, they will continue to work hard towards their SATs before sitting them in May, they will be practising and performing their leaving assembly and they may even have a few treats before leaving Oakhill to go to their chosen high school!
The children work across Y6 for Maths, this enables us to provide a personalised curriculum for all. We are following the national curriculum for year six. 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 tables as this is a very important skill and will help greatly with the Maths work in class. The children have online access to Times Table Rockstars and we encourage them to complete practise questions and tournaments regularly - certificates and prizes are available!.
Our learning will take place around a variety of texts. 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 upon in May (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.
Learning Challenege Curriculum
We have some exciting topics to focus on in the Summer Term. These include Anglo-Saxons, Vikings and Scots and Light. We will also be spending time on 'World Cup' themed lessons. As always, these topics will provide opportunities for work across many subjects, allowing the children to use their skills across the curriculum.
During the Summer Term there will be the Year 6 residential visit to Stanley Head, as well as a possible visit to Alton Towers as a post-SATs treat! There will also be some transition with our feeder high schools.
Things To Remember
P.E. sessions will be on Monday (dance) and Wednesday (athletics), 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 as this hydrates the brain.
Homework- all children are expected to complete and return homework on time. Rewards are given to children who complete homework to a high standard.
Spellings are taken from the school spelling policy and children are expected to learn them weekly.
Reading books and diaries need to be in school daily.
Team 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.
