Year 6 - Great Oaks

A huge welcome to Year 6!

Our teacher for the year is Mrs Morris and our LSA is Mrs Hance.

We are known as Great Oaks and are located in a large classroom overlooking the school field and the beautiful countryside beyond. We are very lucky to have this beautiful scenery and we plan on spending as much time as we can outside, exploring and learning from our local area.

As the oldest pupils in the school, our class values are; Individuality, Responsibility and Respect. We take on additional roles, such as House Captains, School Council Leaders, Play Leaders and Prefects. We know the younger children look up to us, so we set the highest standard of behaviour and attitude all through the year.

Our first topic this year is Mountains, Volcanoes, Rivers and The Water Cycle. Our learning in English will be linked to this and we will be writing newspaper reports, explanation texts and poetry. We will be reading the book ‘Journey to the River Sea’ and we will be writing diaries and stories based on the themes of curiosity and nature.

In the Spring Term our History topic will be the Mayans and to support our learning we hope to visit the British Museum. The Summer Term brings our Key Stage 2 tests, for which we will be highly prepared for. We will also look forward to activity week and our end of year performance!

As this is our final year at Hawridge and Cholesbury, we will be very busy, but it will be highly rewarding and we look forward to sharing this journey with you.
