Welcome to Cherry Class
We have a fabulous team working in Year Six. Mr Warren is the teacher in Cherry Class, Mrs Heath is the teacher in Apple Class and Mrs Rhodes assists both classes. Y6 are also supported by Mrs Brailsford and Mrs Corne.
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.
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 usually set on a Monday (to be in the following Monday).
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. Spellings are usually given out on a Thursday and tested on the following Thursday.
Alumno Curriculum (Geography/History/Science)
We have lots of exciting topics to investigate this year in Science:
Humans and Animals (including the human body and evolution)
In History we will be looking at:
Anglo-Saxons and Vikings
Local History at the time of The Industrial Revolution
In Geography we will be studying:
The Alps and mountain ranges
Asia and how a particular city/town in Asia is different to Oakhill
Trips provide children first hand experiences to support their learning. At present we are not able to arrange trips, but hope that this will change in the near future.
Where possible, however, we will be working with local high schools to provide the children with experiences of secondary school before they move up to Year 7 in September 2021.
Things To Remember
In Autumn Term, P.E. sessions are on Thursdays. 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 in a named bottle.
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.
