Oak Class

Welcome to Oak Class.

We are years 5 and 6, aged between 9 – 11. Oak class is taught by Miss Gregory on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday morning and by Mrs Hornby on Thursday afternoon and Friday. Oak class is supported by Mrs Mocock and Miss Edwards. In Oak Class we try our hardest to challenge ourselves in all areas of the curriculum, whilst maintaining a fun, creative atmosphere in the classroom. We are proud of our achievements and encourage others to also do their best.

Please see below our daily timetable and long-term plan for the year:

Year 5 and Year 6 go on camp every year and it rotates between Mill on the Brue and Great Potheridge House. This year we will be going on the residential visit in the Spring Term. The year 5 and 6 pupils really look forward and enjoy this residential trip for working in teams, trying new things, and most of all they have fun! Previous year groups state “we always have fun, the activities are enjoyable and they always keep up busy during the week. We have great memories of camp!”

In Oak Class we take part and do lots of exciting things, such as performing in our school production, school trips and leaving events before moving on to our secondary schools.

Oak class enjoy being the oldest pupils as they take on responsibilities throughout the school and have the opportunity to organise different events; whilst also being able to become more responsible, independent, and helpful to one another as well as their younger fellow pupils. Oak class are expected to set a good example. The Golden Rules and school’s Christian values are displayed in the class and provide the basis for our school ethos and expectations of behaviour.

Miss Gregory and Mrs Hornby have the privilege to see each individual child grow and develop over the year in Oak Class – making the most of opportunities and building memories for life. Also working hard to make sure that the children move on with a smooth transition to Year 7 at their new secondary school. 

READING

At Cameley Primary School we are very passionate about reading. We encourage children to read at least 5 times a week. We monitor this through their reading records. Please write in the reading record book noting the date, the pages read and any comment you wish to make.

HOMEWORK

Oak class homework will be sent home on a Wednesday.

Weekly homework should be handed in on the following Monday, which will give the class teacher time to mark it and talk it through with the children.

SPELLINGS

Children are provided with weekly spellings. These spellings are based on the National Curriculum spelling list and rules for Year 5 & 6.

Whilst the spellings are supported and taught in school, we encourage these spellings are practiced at home.

We have a spelling test every Thursday.

PE

PE will be on a Tuesday. This will be taught by Miss Gregory and Coach Nathan. Children need to have their PE kit in school every day.
