Year 6 - Great Oaks
Welcome to Year 6 – Great Oaks!
Our teachers are Mrs Whitby and Mrs Kretschmer and our LSA is called Mrs Howard.
As the oldest pupils in the school, we know that we have new and exciting responsibilities. We are the House Captains and prefects and therefore we are also the role models of the school’s core values: respect, team work, responsibility, understanding, peace and honesty.
In the Autumn Term, we explore some fantastic topics, from rivers and mountains in Geography to classifying living organisms in Science. Our English, Art and Music are all linked to these, enabling us to have a greater depth of understanding.
Later in the year, we will be immersed in all things Victorian – from literature to Design and Technology. We are all looking forward to our Victorian Day and the opportunity to experience what school would have been like in the 19th Century.
The Summer Term will bring challenges in the form of SATs but also continued interesting learning opportunities, looking at the Maya in History and Evolution and Inheritance in Science.
Undoubtedly, as this is our final year at Hawridge & Cholesbury, we will have a busy but fun year, not least because of the exciting trips, our participation in the summer activity week and of course, our amazing end of year production.
