I am very pleased to welcome everybody back after the Summer holidays to Oak Class - year 6. Year 6 is an exciting year for our children as they prepare to leave primary school and embark on the next step in their learning journeys. There is a lot to look forward to and a lot of focused learning to ensure they are ready for secondary school. The adults working in Oak Class this year are myself, Ms Leeb, and Mrs Robertson (supporting individual children)

 In this Geography topic, Oak Class will use maps, atlases and computers to identify the countries in North and South America and find some of the capital cities. They will use geographical terms to describe where a range of places across the Americas are and explore the varied climates and biomes. Exploring the human and physical geography of the local area will enable the children to compare Harting to an area in North America. To end off the topic, Oak will research, identify and name the Seven Wonders of the World (new) and investigate one of the natural wonders of the Americas.

Knowledge Organisers 
Please find below the knowledge organisers linked to your child's learning this term. These documents provide details of the key knowledge the children are expected to learn across the sequence of learning. We would encourage parents and carers to look at these with their children and regularly spend time discussing the facts on the sheets.  
This week in Oak Class (w/b 22.05.23)
This week Oak children have worked hard on completing some fabulous writing related to their Science topics and our English text The Arrival. They enjoyed exploring a story about some very busy rabbits and learning about the Fibonacci sequence in maths. Some children had the opportunity to make observations and sketches in our lovely Coronation Garden. This week Oak started their science topic and learned about the circulatory system and the heart, everybody loved making 'blood' and learning about its four components. In our PE lesson everyone showed off their team skills in a fun game of Rounders.
