The School Prayer
Thank you for the wonderful world that you created.
Help us not to give up on our dreams.
Bless my day and our school,
Welcome back! I trust you have had a relaxing break over the Summer and are as raring to go as I am for this new term! This year promises to be a great one in Oak Class, filled with a wide range of topics and adventures along the way.
This is an important year for a lot of Oak Class, not only with SATs in May, but also ensuring your child is fully prepared to take their next step up to secondary school.
For the first part of this term, we will be answering the question ‘Who Do You Think You Are?’ through looking at the ‘Woeful World War 2’. We will be exploring all there is to know about how it started, key roles that were played and the impact it had then, and now.
If you have any questions regarding routines, homework or you have any concerns, please don’t hesitate to come and see me.
PE will be on Tuesday and Thursday Afternoons.
Please ensure that your child has his/her PE kit in everyday so that they can attend the vast variety of clubs we have on offer.
Spellings: Each Friday your child will be sent home with a list of spellings to learn ready for a test on the following Thursday.
These will consist of the spelling pattern learnt in that week and a selection from the Year 5/6 spelling list. Please find time to encourage and help your child with these.
Maths and Times Tables: Maths homework will be set weekly, based on the area that has been focused on during the week to consolidate their learning. It is also important to continue practicing their times tables.
The National expectation for children in Year 5 and 6 is to know the 12 x tables fluently (including the inverse operations) and for SATs this year they are introducing a new ‘Times Tables Test’. It would be fantastic if you could aid your child in reaching this goal.
