Welcome to Oaks. There are 2 members of staff in Sycamores this year. Miss Whittaker the class teacher and Mrs Qureshi is the Teaching Assistant.

We are a class of 7 pupils, Year 5 and Year 6 children.

Welcome to another busy term in Oaks!

This half term our Creative Curriculum topic is Ancient Egyptians. We will be learning all about Egypt now and the geography of Egypt, the ancient Egyptian’s way of life, architecture, religions and of course mummification!


In English, we will focus on our use of punctuation and conjunctions when writing myths linked to Ancient Egypt. We will also be learning how to answer SAT reading comprehension questions. We will also practise spelling tests and grammar tests ready for our SAT tests. We will be reading lots of myths and our class novel is Kensuke’s Kingdom by Michael Morpurgo


In Maths we will be looking at test papers as SAT’s week is w/c  9th May. We will also focus on fractions, decimals and percentages.

PE is still on a Wednesday and is strike and field games, Please ensure there is an outdoor kit in school for the term.

Outdoor leaning is on Monday, and as it is pretty dry, trainers & joggers.


We would encourage daily reading and expect this a least four times per week. Oaks can read independently and then ask them about what they have read to earn a raffle ticket for the prize draw at the end of term.

Please continue to use the home school book to ask questions or communicate. We can always be reached by telephone.
