Year 5/6 Oaks

Welcome to Year 5 and 6

Hi everyone and a huge welcome to the Year 5 and 6 page. It has been a very busy beginning to the new school year. The children have made a fantastic start and I am proud to say that the year 6's are acting as excellent ambassadors to the whole of the school and in particular to the year 5's who are new to the year 5/6 class. 


Already this year we have made our first school outing to the Community Centre, to take part in the World Peace Day celebrations. The children looked fantastically smart in their school uniforms and sang 'I'd like to teach the world to sing' beautifully. 


This term our whole school topic is the Ancient Greeks - lots of fun was had on our immersion day when we enjoyed making Greek food and made togas out of plastic bags to attend the Greek toga party in the afternoon. We also learned about Greek artefacts and made some very impressive Greek pottery. 


This term has already seen us welcome a new addition to the class in the form of Popeye our school fish. We have fish monitors who are responsible for looking after him and we are all eagerly awaiting some friends for Popeye to share his tank with in the coming weeks. Please feel free to pop in and see him or ask the children all about him.


Please remember: -

PE kits to be in school at all times.

Swimming costumes and towels on Fridays starting 22.09.17.

Water bottles - as these help us concentrate.

Homework goes out on Thursdays and is due back in on Mondays.

Spellings and Times tables homework goes out on Tuesdays for tests the following Tuesday.


Please do not hesitate to contact either myself or Mrs Taylor if you have any questions or concerns.


Best regards

Sara Griffiths
