Oak Class (Year 6)

Welcome to Oak Class!

This is the children’s final term at St. Wilfrid’s which always proves to be a very busy and exciting time. We have lots to look forward to, including the much anticipated trip to the Imperial War Museum in Manchester, the traditional Year 6 BBQ, the leavers’ service and class production. The children will also be visiting their new high schools during this term.

In MATHS we are revisiting Algebra, Problem Solving and Data Analysis. Linked to our World War 2 study, we will be designing menus and recipes from rations.

Our LITERACY this term will focus on our class reader

including comprehension, character analysis, discussion of plot etc.

Our HISTORY topic is World War II and the children are increasing their learning and understanding, both in class and through their own fantastic individual studies. We also have some super displays in class, including an array of original WWII artefacts!

RE this term will focus on Bible stories and how these can help to deepen our knowledge and understanding of God. We will be asking big questions and expressing our own views.

In SCIENCE we are continuing to study living things and their habitats, how they have adapted to suit their environments and how that adaptation can lead to evolution.

FRENCH is focused on learning about travel to a francophone location and identifying francophone countries.

PHSE will include KIDSAFE sessions related to emotional health and well-being.
