 In class we are learning...



This week, children will be focusing on fiction genres, especially fantasy, and will be answering the following objectives:

Can I define the key elements of the fantasy genres and settings?

Can I define key elements of fantasy characters?

Can I create heroic speech?

Can I examine and create plot lines suitable for fantasy genres?

Can I write a setting description for a fantasy setting?  



See the Year 5/6 Spelling page for the current rules to learn.







If your child would like to do some extra activities at home, in their own time, they need to let Mr Ridd know and he can provide a Home/School book.

PE days - Wednesday and Thursday  (Term 6)

Please can children have correct PE kit in school for these days. White t-shirt, blue or black shorts and appropriate footwear for both indoor and outdoor PE.  I am more than happy for children to wear jogging bottoms for outdoor PE when it is cold, but please can these be dark and plain.

Children will need to tie their hair back and ALL jewellery must be removed (earrings may be covered with tape)

Cycle training - Mr. Moon is organising cycle training this year. Children will know who is doing it this term. 

Termly News:

Week Commencing 5th June 2017 (Science Week)

 Oak Class enjoyed a fantastic science week exploring energy.  Throughout the week, the children did a range of different investigations, including understanding about different non-renewable energy sources.


Week Commencing  19th June 2017

Children enjoyed another busy week in Year 5/6 focused largely around preparation for the forthcoming production of 'Pride'.  A large number of Year 6 children had a fantastic couple of days visiting their new secondary schools.  The week was finished off with a great visit to the Lifeskills Centre in Bristol, which allowed the children to work through a range of different scenarios and learn about how to keep safe in these.
