Oak Tree

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.  Mrs Whitehead is always there to help us with any worries we might have.

We also have two parent helpers: Mrs Mount comes  in on a Wednesday to set reading targets. 

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.

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.

Cober Hill 2019


We are all looking forward to our trip to Cober Hill. We will update our diary and photos every day at about 6pm.


We have safely arrived at Cober Hill and everyone has finally found out who they are  sharing with! 

We spent quite a soggy day at Bempton Cliffs but we were rewarded with quite a few sightings of puffins. 

Enjoy the pictures.


We have been so lucky with the weather and managed to get to Hayburn Wyke without getting drenched! We are  all back safe and sound at Cober Hill and about to paint the rocks we collected at the beach. 




Our day was spent looking at the wild flowers and wildlife along the way. 


Another fantastic day - the weather held off and although it was misty and a bit chilly, we had a great day in Scarborough visiting the castle, the museum and the lifeboat station.  


More phots from Wednesday...


What a day! After thinking we would have to spend the day indoors, the rain stopped for a bit so we set off on our long walk from Ravenscar to Robin Hood's Bay. The pictures tell the story - the tide was in so we had to walk along the cliff path all the way there and all the way back. This was challenging, particularly the last climb of half a mile back to the minibus. We all mde it, though, and are feeling tired but proud.

We can't quite believe that tomorrow is our last day. See you tomorrow at about 3.15.  We will ping you when we are about 15 minutes away.
