Welcome to Cherry Class
We have a fabulous team working in Year six. Mr Warren is the teacher in Cherry Class, Miss Harris (Monday and Tuesday ) and Mrs Jones ( Wednesday, Thursday and Friday) are the teachers in Apple Class. The support staff in Y6 are Mrs Weaver and Mrs Rhodes. Y6 are also supported by Mrs Brailsford.
In Cherry 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 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 will also continue this year with Times Table Rock Stars online challenges.
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 on 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. Reading Diaries are checked on Fridays.
Learning Challenege Curriculum
We have lots of exciting questions to investigate this year such as:
What does a journey through your body look like?
What is slavery?
Can you set up tour own company to sell an electrical product?
Were the Viking always victorious and vicious?
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 the International Slavery Museum 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) 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.
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 homework is given out on a Thursday and is due in the following Tuesday.
Maths homework is given out on a Friday and is due in the following Wednesday.
Spellings are taken from the school spelling policy and children are expected to learn them weekly. They are given out on a Friday and tested the following Tuesday.
Reading books and diaries need to be in school daily, but will be checked every Friday.
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.
