Oak Class (Year 6)

Welcome to Oak Class!

Hello and a very big warm welcome to year six, Oak class. Our teacher is Miss Fisher and our teaching assistants are Mrs Phillips and Mrs King.


Year six is a very challenging year academically but also socially; with SATs and secondary school getting increasingly closer the children will feel the pressure. However, my aim is to make the year fun and memorable and ensure the children leave Newtown as well prepared for their next journey as possible. The children will have many fun opportunities this year with a residential trip to Braeside, other topic related excursions as well as organising and leading events within the school. Yes it will be hard work, but it most definitely will be rewarding and my only rules are that everyone tries their best and are kind at all times. We are a team in Oak class, and I cannot wait to embark on this journey with the children.


Key things to remember:

  • PE kit needs to be in school every day
  • Children are expected to read daily and record this in the back of their learning destination book. Parents please listen to them as often as possible.
  • Before reading in the evening, children must practise their weekly spellings (these are tested on a Friday)
  • Maths homework will be set weekly and is linked to what the children are learning about in class. Sometimes this will be a worksheet, other times it will be an electronic game on Abacus like last year.
  • The learning destination book can be used for any additional home learning that your child wishes to do.
