Oak Class (Year 5 and 6) 2021 - 2022

Autumn Term 1

Throughout our first term we will be learning all about the Ancient Maya civilisation and exploring the many different aspects of their history. During the topic we will learn all about chocolate and a trip to Temper Temper, chocolate makers, has been organised so that we can deepen our understanding of chocolate production and and how the cacao plant growns.


Autumn Term 2

During Autumn term 2, Oak class will be delving 'Into the Unknown' and exploring and understanding the world around them. We will begin our learning focussed on the importance of Remembrance and why it is an important time for reflection. We will then delve into South America and learn about this fascinating continent.  

During the first few weeks of term, our pupils learned about Rememberance and explored this important National event through English, Art and History. We visited our local church 'St Michael's and All Angels in Withyham to learn more about rememberance in Withyham and the surrounding areas.

As the oldest children in the school, Year 5/6 are role models for all of our pupils. This begins with the buddy system we have created where our Year 6 pupils support and look after our youngest children in Reception. We create lots of opportunities for our oldest children to shine and to become confident, caring and compassionate role models for our school community and indeed for their lives ahead. 

Above is a snapshot of learning in Oak Class so far. We use our school values in all that we do at St Michael's and work hard, play well and look after each other.
