Welcome to Oak Class 2016-17

We are taught by Miss G Allen. Our teaching assistant is Mrs T Lawson. This is a Key Stage Two class of 32 Year 6 children.

Oak Classroom

Our classroom is located on the Upper Mall. Our cloakroom is shared with Heron class, where we can store our coats, PE kits and book bags. We have a lovely reading corner with comfortable cushions, which is a relaxing place to go to read quietly.

Reading

Children should be reading regularly at home. We ask parents to continue to listen to your children read, talk about their books, and sign their reading record at least four times a week. We tell the children often that reading gives them knowledge and knowledge brings power – to influence their lives, get even better jobs, and earn more money. It’s more than that though – reading also brings huge amounts of pleasure. Please encourage them to read as much and as widely as possible.

Library visits - Tuesdays.
