6 Oak

Welcome to the home of 6 Oak. Below you will be able to stay up-to-date with all that happens in our classroom throughout the year. Please keep checking back to see all the exciting things we get up to.

Our Awesome Autumn

Super Spring Term

This term, we are learning all about Ancient and Modern Greece. Keep checking back to see what we get up to.


Our topic in the Spring Term is 'Ancient and Modern Greece' in which we learn all about the history of Greece as well as thing about where we can see the influence of Ancient Greece on our world and Britain today. We will be looking at Greek food in DT and light in our science lessons. 



Every week, a set of spellings will be handed out to the children. Whilst we no longer have tests each week, these spellings will form the focus of all our spelling lessons the following week. 



Specific reading skills are taught in English lessons and children practise their reading across all subjects. We enjoy DEAR Time ('Drop Everything and Read') sessions, towards the end of the school day to foster a love of books and an enjoyment of reading. We also undertake various other reading-based activities throughout the year, in order to further the children's enjoyment and appreciation of a range of texts.  


Parents can support this reading journey through regular reading at home. Reading to and with your child every evening for at least ten minutes can make a dramatic difference to a child's achievement within school.


Book Club

Children will read a section of a text/book or poem that the children will choose together, for approximately 20 minutes every day within a small group. As well as reading and listening to each other, there is opportunity for lots of discussion and 'book talk'. Twice a week, the children will be set a short homework assignment, for example, to read the next 5-10 pages of their text, in preparation for the next day's Book Club session. This reading homework can be done independently or with an adult. We aim to expose children to different text types, authors and themes throughout the year.


Bug Club

Bug Club is an excellent online book resource where your child can access books that are suitable and appropriate for their ability. If you have any questions or problems logging on, please contact me. 


Secret Storyteller

We hope to have various 'Secret Storytellers' visiting the class throughout the school year. If you would like to come into school and read to the children, please let me know.


Reading Journal

Each class has a Reading Journal which is a special book in which children can record their thoughts, feelings and reviews of the books that they have read. A different child will be chosen to take home the journal each Friday. The expectation is that when it is their turn, children will create an entry. The Reading Journal should be returned on, or before, the following Friday. The journal contains further instructions and examples.



We have two PE sessions each week on Thursday (outdoor) and Friday (indoor). Please ensure that your child is wearing their PE kit (t-shirt, shorts, leggings, tracksuit bottoms, trainers, etc) on these days. If your child wears earrings, please ensure that these are removed before school. This term, we shall be learning all about the skills of football, and fitness.
