Oak - Year 6

IMPORTANT UPDATE: The spelling list for the remainder of Term 2 has been added below as per parental request.  Also if any parents require passwords for Times Tables Rock Stars, please let me know.  Many thanks.


We hope that your children have all enjoyed themselves in the term that we have all been back at school and are looking forward to our second term of learning together. 


What are we learning this term?

In Topic, we are learning all about the World War II and in Science we are learning about evolution and inheritance.  This is a chance to complete really fun, exciting activities in class and outside in the forest.  Meanwhile in RE we are considering the evidence that Jesus is the Messiah in the Bible and learning about the effect on Christian lives of this key belief of incarnation.  The termly newsletter gives greater detail on each subject.


What is the weekly homework?

Every week for homework, the Year 6 children need to practise their times tables using either “Times Tables Rock Stars” or “Hit the Button” (free on the internet) and learn their spellings for the week.  They also should read their home reading book every night.  This reading can sometimes be independent (though reading out loud to an adult is best); however the reading record should be signed by an adult every night.  In addition, there is a creative, fun, topic related set of termly homework task, a copy of which can be found below.


When is PE?
PE is every Tuesday (Judo) and Wednesday (Rugby) and the PE kit should be worn to school.


Please use the class email address to send us your children's homework (if it is a document) and for any other queries.


We are really looking forward to the upcoming term!

What is happening at the moment in Oak Class?

As you can see above, we have been doing some really exciting computer programming with robots!!  Other exciting tasks we have done this term include painting in the style of Winston Churchill, creating a graffiti-style WW2 war memorial in honour of local soldiers who died and performing/improvising Jazz music!  Finally, this week we have been writing a recount of the real-life story of a Hever WW2 (with a bit of poetic licence)!  

Oak's tribute to Kent soldiers who gave their lives in WW2.

An account from Betty Sutton, a Hever evacuee.

We've been making Anderson shelters!
