Oak Tree 2018 to 2019

A Great Start to the Year...

Welcome to Oak Tree Class. 

Who works in Oak Tree class?

Our class teacher is Mrs Smith. Mrs Warriner supports us in Maths, Science  and Guided Reading. Mrs Whitehead is always there to help us with any worries we might have.

On Tuesday afternoons, Mr Kidd works with Oak Tree Class.

We also have two parent helpers: Mrs Mount comes  in on a Wednesday to set reading targets. Mrs Brothwell supports us in our learning on Wednesday mornings.

The children have made an excellent start to the year, returning from holidays rested and motivated. They have been helping out with the new Foundation Stage pupils, helping them at lunchtime and looking after them at playtime too.

What do we Learn?

Year 6 is all about getting ready both for the SATs tests in MAy and for the transition to High School. Our main topic this term is 'The Victorians' so we are looking forward to finding out about what life was like during that time of immense change.

Science

Our first science  project was very exciting - we investigated whether it was possible for a human to construct a successful bird's nest.  The children used the chrome books to watch various videos of birds building their nests before designing their own in small groups. The materials were then foraged from the school grounds abd  the afternoon was spent weaving grass and leaves, making the structure sound and solid with mud and then deciding where to position the nests so they would be safe from predators.

Year 6 Visit to Bradford Grand Mosque

On Wednesday, Oak Tree class  visited the Grand Mosque in Bradford - we spent a fantastic morning looking round the mosque and learning about the Five Pillars of  Islam and the importance of prayer in Muslim daily life. Our guide, Bilali, was interesting and informative and the children were attentive and, as usual, extremely well-behaved.  As a mark of respect, the girls covered their hair with headscarves and the boys all wore caps.

The mosque is a beautiful building; we visited  the prayer rooms and learned about the rituals of prayer, including the importance of being clean before praying.
