Oak Class 2020 - 2021

Mrs Paterson

Welcome to Oak’s class page!

Our class is made up of 21 extremely intelligent Year 5 and 6 children. We are taught by Miss Booth and Mrs Paterson and we are also lucky enough to have Mrs Stoker working with us throughout the week too. 

Year 5 and 6 can be both be very tricky years, we all have to work hard and pay attention; however we’re very good at doing both of these things and our teachers like to make sure we have as much fun as we can while we're learning.

Being in Oak Class also means we have lots of other responsibilities to undertake, such as: Recycling Officers, Assembly Monitors, Junior Energy Monitors, Rose Queen and Attendants. We're all run off our feet! Keep a look out on the school website and our Class Dojo page for updates on how these monitors are getting on throughout the year.

During the summer term our history topic is ‘Elizabethan England’, our science topic is called ‘Electric Celebrations’ and in RE our focus is Gospel; ‘What would Jesus do?’.  

How can I help and support my child at school?

There are so many ways in which you can help support your child's learning at home.

Reading - please listen to your child read as often as you can and talk about what they have read. All children will have a school reading book and we do ask them to read this regularly (aim for three - four times per week). However, there is also nothing to stop you and your child finding other interesting texts to read together e.g. articles in the local paper, non-fiction books about a hobby or another story they enjoy from home.

Maths - tables tables tables! Chant them, test each other in the car, do them backwards, find the corresponding division facts, make up games with thousands of points for the winner! Please help your child to know their times tables inside out - this will help them so much in all other areas of maths.

Homework

Homework this year will be given out on a Friday and will be due in on the following Wednesday. Whilst homework must be the children's own work, I really encourage parent support at home too. 

Homework will have different focuses each week: reading, SPaG, maths and writing and will often link with what they have been learning in school. Children will also be sent home spellings and times tables to learn, which they will be tested on the following week. 

If you have any questions, please email me either teacher on:
