Miss Rickards

This is our Year 5/6 class for 10-11 year olds – Oak Class are brilliant! At the end of Year 6, children take their national SATs in May each year and we are always proud of how hard the children work – we believe that trying their absolute best is all that we can ask and we celebrate progress in every child.  In Oak Class we believe that enriching the children’s learning with as much topic work as possible allows our pupils to enjoy their school experience without constant pressure of tests – when the children are expected to take their tests, the majority of children cheer, ‘Yay!’

Our topic for this half term is Healthy Bodies;  we are focusing on Animals including Humans – what happens to our bodies as we grow older and what helps to keep those bodies healthy.

Our quality text this half term will be Darwin’s Dragons by Lesley Galvin and we will use it to base some of our English work on, enabling children to further understand evolution and adaptations.
