Oak Class- Year 5/6


Teacher: Miss Stanley

Welcome back Oak Class!

Autumn term has gotten off to a fantastic start for our class. There has been a lot of changes but you have all risen to the challenges.

Our topic for the term is 'Changing Cheshire' where we will be exploring the history and geography of the local area. The history focus will allow pupils to discover how Cheshire has changed from the Stone Age through to the invasion of the Romans. Geography sessions will prompt discussions about tourism.

In English we will be reading Rose Blanche by Ian McEwan and Hansel and Gretel by Neil Gaiman. Exploring these texts will allow pupils to write a diary entry and persuasive letters.

In Maths we have started using a new scheme called Power Maths which prompts pupils to Discover, Share and Think Together about various mathematical concepts.

Our science topics will be Earth and Space during the first half term, and Light after half term.

After a crazy couple of years it will be nice to get back to some normality!
