Welcome to Class Oaks Page!
Here is where you will find all the necessary information about Class 6. Please let me know if anything is missing/ not working.
Class Teacher: Miss Brown
Class Teaching Assistant: Mrs Huthwaite
Welcome to Class Oaks information page. Here you will find lots of photos, information and fun activities for pupils and parents including: your topic homework, weekly spellings, newsletters, website links for fun games and learning as well as other information that might be useful to Class Oak.
If your child is currently off school due to self-isolation, illness or school closure and you would like to continue their learning at home, we would recommend the following resources. It would be great to see some of the work that children have produced. You can upload this work to your child's class dojo for Miss Brown to see.
White Rose Maths
White Rose maths has created some teaching videos which will be updated regularly and are in line with curriculum learning for each year group. A regular daily learning routine will help your child to learn more effectively at home. We, therefore, recommend that you aim to cover just one 20-30 minute White Rose Maths session each day.
White Rose have now produced activities in line with the year 6 curriculum for the Summer Term. These are areas we have not covered yet so I will be a great activity for the children to learn and complete before transitioning into secondary school.

At Snape Wood, we believe that every child should feel proud to be a part of our school and so we have introduced PRIDE points. Each letter represents an aspect of our school values:
P - positive attitude
R - respectful
I - inquisitive
D - determination
We will be using class dojo in the classroom to record PRIDE points. Children can still collect points and spend them in the PRIDE points shop. You can also follow what's happening in our classroom by signing up to our class Dojo app. If you require a letter to see your child's Dojo progress, please pop in and ask Miss Brown.
Studies have shown that reading supports the children's subject knowledge in other areas of the curriculum.
Reading is really important at Snape Wood. We want all children to become confident readers, who enjoy reading for pleasure. To support us in this, please make sure you read with your child for at least fifteen minutes a day and write this in your child’s reading diary. When your child reads 10, 20, 30 and 50 books, they will receive a certificate. Please encourage your child to read at least three times a week at home. We will be monitoring which children are reading at home weekly.
The children will be sent home maths arithmetic questions and spelling homework every Friday. Please support your child to complete the work as independently as possible.
Below are some useful links to help you support your child at home.
In Class Oak, we follow the behaviour traffic light system. All children start the day on green. If a child breaks one of our school rules they are given a reminder and asked to change their behaviour. If the child does not correct their behaviour we move their name down to orange. If there is still no improvement the child's name is moved to red. Children are given the opportunity to move up the traffic light system and we encourage children to work their way back up to green. If a child is on red and their behaviour does not improve they are sent for time in on a different table in class. This allows the child to think about their behaviour and make a positive change. If there behaviour carries on in their time in session, the child will have timeout in our partnered class.
Red cards are sent home if a child is on red at the end of the day or if they display extreme behaviour. If your child brings home a red card, please take the opportunity to talk to your child about their behaviour and sign and return the card.
Green cards are sent home on a Friday to children that have displayed positive behaviour and finished the week without moving off green on our behaviour ladder. It is an opportunity for both school and parents to celebrate positive behaviour. The children really enjoy receiving the cards and look forward to bringing them home. If you sign and return your child's green card, they are entered into a prize draw.
Please encourage your child to bring their green card back into class on Monday mornings.
Reading diaries should be in school everyday.
Pupils should read for at least 20 minutes everyday and record this in their diaries. Your child should be reading at least three times a week at home. The children can record if they have read themselves.
Reading diaries need to be in school everyday. We will be checking these daily.
Spellings are tested weekly. You can find this weeks spellings below. These will also be given out every Friday.
Maths homework is also given at the end of each unit.
PE kits need to be brought in to school every Monday and then took home on a Friday. The children will have PE on a Tuesday and a Friday.
On a Friday the children now have ICT, Music and PE in the afternoon.
