Welcome to Class Oak Years 5 and 6


On behalf of all the staff of Class Oak, welcome to our class page. We hope you have had a super holiday creating many wonderful memories. . We recognise that in order to be successful in school, our children need support from both the home and school. A strong partnership with you will make a great difference in your child’s education. If there are any problems or concerns please do not hesitate to come in and speak to us.


Oak Year 5/6 Homework Expectations

Each week your child will receive homework relating to reading, writing and maths. This will be given out weekly to be handed back in the following week.


Reading:  A reading book from the library. These can be changed on Mondays.


Writing: Grammar and punctuation work following on from work done in class.

              A weekly crossword with a focus on vocabulary development.


Spelling: Will be given out in preparation for a test each Thursday.


Maths: Arithmetic/ Problem Solving and Reasoning will be given out weekly following on from work completed in class.

Please help your child by:

  • Checking their spelling work and asking them to spell words using Look, Say, Cover,Write and Check (one column per night).
  • Helping them with times tables, for example, asking them random questions relating to the tables they are practising.
  • Listening to them read their library book which can be changed on Mondays. Please ask your child questions about what they have read; questions including “why” or “explain why” (reading between the lines) are particularly helpful.


Thank you in advance for your support with your child’s learning.

Miss Holdsworth, Mrs Firth, Mrs Heeley and Miss Patel
