Oak Class- Year 5 and 6

Oak Class is the final step in primary education for Years 5 and 6 and, as such, focuses on developing independent learners and preparing pupils for secondary school. Pupils take on greater responsibilities and play an active role in creating a happy and safe school atmosphere, including assuming roles in assemblies, being buddies for younger pupils and developing leadership skills that have a positive impact on themselves, school and the local community.

In Oak Class, the learning is fast paced with opportunities for pupils to stretch themselves academically and take the most from their learning in an independent way. Year 6 pupils are preparing for the end of key stage SATs in Reading, Maths and Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar.

Oak Class children are able to access a range of sporting events and have achieved great success in the recent past in a variety of sports from football to gymnastics and rugby to athletics.

In addition to developing academically, pupils in Years 5 and 6 are at an important time in nurturing their spiritual, moral, social and cultural skills. Through developing a wide range of skills, responsibilities and building independence, Oak Class pupils are developing skills to ‘learn for life’.
