We have a fabulous team working in Year Six. Mrs Heath is the teacher in Apple class, Mr Warren is the teacher in Cherry Class and Mrs Hughes assists both classes. Y6 are also supported by Mrs Brailsford and Mrs Corne.
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.
Teaching and Learning in Maths follows our Oakhill planning document which teaches the four main areas in Maths. These are Number and Place Value, Geometry, Measure and Statistics. Where possible, links have been made across the Maths curriculum to provide children with as many opportunities as possible to apply their knowledge and understanding.
Maths homework is always due in on Mondays.
English lessons are planned and delivered around a variety of texts. In addition to the work we do in Reading and Writing, there is an increased focus on SPAG (spelling, grammar and punctuation) throughout Year 6 as the children will be tested on this in May as part of their SATs.
Please support your child by encouraging them to read at home and to practise their spellings. Reading cards are signed by the teacher on a Monday and spellings are tested on a Thursday.
Alumno Curriculum (Topic)
We have lots of exciting topics to investigate this year:
Humans and Animals (including the human body and evolution)
Anglo-Saxons and Vikings
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 Chester Zoo as part of our Zoo Project 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 experiences of high school before they move up to Year 7 in September 2020.
Things To Remember
P.E. sessions are on Monday. 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. Maths homework is given out on a Monday and is due in the following Monday. Spellings are given out on Thursdays and will be tested the following Thursday.
Reading books need to be in school daily and reading cards are signed on a Monday.
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.
