Year 6 - Oak Class 2020 - 2021
Our Oak Class Family
We are really lucky to have lots of people that help us in Oak Class.
Here are our key adults:

- Mrs Berry – Teaching Assistant
- Miss Evans – PPA Teacher
- Mr Green – Midday assistant
- Mrs Jones - Volunteer
Is there enough room for the both of us?
This half term, we will be looking at the book Can We Save the Tiger? By Martin Jenkins. Children will have the opportunity to learn about endangered animals from around the world and discuss key topical issues around our focus text. We will carefully consider the threats to the many endangered species on our planet and the need to prevent their extinction. Is there really enough room for the both of us?
Our PE day is Friday. Due to our current provision in school, please ensure that your child comes into school dressed in their PE kit. We encourage children to dress appropriately for the weather.
At Westfield, we expect all children to complete five reading sessions a week. These should be recorded in each child’s individual reading diary. Pupils' diaries are checked every morning by the class teacher.
Every Monday, ten spellings will be given to the children to learn. These spellings will be introduced to the children through a discreetly taught spelling session. Children will be tested on these spellings on a Friday. Every child has a spelling map for each half term so that they can familiarise themselves with the planned learning. Our Autumn 2 spelling map can be found on this page.
Online Learning Resources
Our children have access to a range of online resources to aid their learning. Here are the links to some useful websites that children can use whilst not in school. All children are familiar with how to use these.

Covid-19 Bubble Closure
In the event of our bubble having to close, Mrs Davies will provide remote learning through Google Classroom. Every child has been given their own Gmail address. They are able to log onto our online classroom using these details.
It is a requirement that children access our remote learning platform on the days that they would usually attend school. It is important that good communication between school and parents/carers maintains during a bubble closure. We ask that all children respond to the daily task briefing on their Google Classroom homepage. This is so that Mrs Davies can record who has been able to engage with the learning tasks.
If you have any questions, please contact the school office.
Alternatively, you can contact Mrs Davies directly via her school email -firstname.lastname@example.org
