Oak - Year 6

Welcome to Oak - Year 6!


Welcome to Year 6: A Spectacular Start!

Welcome to Year 6 - we kicked off the year with a bang with an exhilarating Kingswood residential trip. We dived into a fantastic array of activities such as conquering high ropes, constructing rafts, building dens, lighting fires, and much more. Each of us set personal challenges to achieve our unique goals, and as a result, we departed with newfound skills, a sense of motivation, and smiles beaming across our faces.


Our Unforgettable Trip to Duxford Imperial War Museum

Our trip to Duxford Imperial War Museum was a fantastic experience that perfectly complemented our Autumn Term History unit on World War 2. An absolute highlight was the thrilling documentary challenge in Hangar 2, centred around the events of the Battle of Britain. We had the opportunity to step into the shoes of broadcasters, assuming various roles within our small team to document a fascinating array of artefacts. Some of us discovered hidden talents behind the camera, bringing the history to life in our own unique ways. Another unforgettable moment was walking through the awe-inspiring Concorde, marvelling at the intricate details of this remarkable aircraft.


Oak's Wonderful Time with Reading Buddies

Oak absolutely adore their time spent with their Reading Buddies! The special scheme pairs Year 6 students with Reception children every Friday afternoon. As part of this lovely programme, Oak students visit Cherry class to read and share books with their younger peers - an activity they eagerly anticipate all week.


Magical Wand Making in Oak Class

A creative twist on the curriculum: Always seeking opportunities to infuse creativity into lessons, here in Oak Class, students delighted in the art of crafting magical wands inspired by our Harry Potter unit. They carefully selected sticks from our Forest School area, moulded clay with expertise acquired in previous art units, and hand painted intricate designs. Every wand is a unique creation, born from an English lesson where we contemplated the powers and abilities of their magical tools.


Inspirational Visit From Laura of Dania Construction

Year 6 were very privileged to have Laura, of Dania Construction, visit our school on Friday 1st March to discuss her role within the industry. Laura discussed the difficulties she has faced as a woman and how a determined and motivated approach has enabled her to achieve great things. We were blown away by the pupils’ mature and well-balanced responses and they felt enthused and empowered by her presentation.
