The final term has arrived! We are very much looking forward to a very exciting term! As we start the new term there are a few details and arrangements we would like to make you aware of.

Topics we will be learning about this term include:

  • English: Goodnight Mr Tom
  • RE: Life as a journey and pilgrimage
  • History – Growth and development of Lancaster as a Georgian Port / World War 2 – The Battle of Britain   

PE: Our PE time continue to be Friday afternoons. The system of wearing their PE kit on this day works very well.  

Forest School: Class Oak will attend Forest School every other Thursday.  I will send a text message to remind children/parents the day before to avoid confusion, as other timetabled events in school and changeable weather conditions may change our plans.   

Homework: Homework will return to the usual routine for Year 6 after the SATs have been completed but remain the same for Year 5 children. – Given on a Friday and handed in on a Wednesday. The ‘Homework Menu’ will continue to be the way homework is given and chosen.  

SATs: As you are aware the Year 6 children in Class Oak will be taking their Standard Assessment Tests (SATs) beginning 9th May. They have been working hard in preparation for these tests and we are now entering the final weeks of revision. A separate letter will be coming home to give specific details next week.

Water Bottles: As we are approaching the summer months, it is very important that your child has a filled water bottle in school each day.

Questions: As part of preparing for high school I encourage the Year 6 children in Class Oak to deal with minor issues themselves. However, if you have any questions that you feel are more pressing then please make an appointment, or catch me on the door and I will be happy to help as best I can.

Yours sincerely

Mr M Curwen and Mrs West
