News and Photos from The Oaks

Welcome to the Oaks, Year 5 and 6. Our teacher is Mr Bailes and our teaching assistant is Miss Sweatman with Mrs Constable on Tuesday and Thursday morning.

In Oaks we are very excited to be some of the oldest children in the school; we aim to be great role models and take our jobs and responsibilities very seriously. As we speak Year 6s are preparing to give their speeches for their house captain presentation. Their votes have been cast and the winners announced.  Well done to Chloe, Millie, Arundeep, Danny, Tyler, Cecily, Jake and Francesca.

In class we always try to be the best we can be and are working hard at becoming resilient, self-reliant, problem-solving learners. We like to learn in all sorts of different ways; using talk partners to support us in our learning; using resources and mental activities and investigation. We are working hard on our times tables and spellings and also practicing our handwriting so our work always looks presentable.

We are looking forward to our exciting topics and trips this term, including World War 2 and our trip to Duxford Museum. We will be putting up work and pictures so you can see just how well we are doing!


Last week’s homework was amazing! Well done to everyone who accepted the challenge of creating a circulatory system. This weeks (18th September 2019) homework will continue on with place value and spellings. This will be back with us on Tuesday and sent out the next day. On top of regular weekly homework, we still expect the children to read every day, noting this in their reading record books/ guided reading journals which will be checked on Monday mornings. You can read the Homework Policy on the website for more details of homework expectations. Check out our wonderful science display on humans including animals where we have been investigating many things including what are the main systems in the circulatory system, what are the main blood vessels and also how nutrients and water are transported around the body.
