Guided reading was thrilling today. We looked at an old Marks and Spencer's advert about food, deconstructing the text ands finding the meanings of unfamiliar words. Our aim is to create our own Christmas adverts selling luxuriously soft cuddly toys.

Wow! What a week! It's been very busy this week and school is definitely looking a lot like Christmas now!

On Thursday the children were invited to the premier of their Half-Time Managerial Team-Talks. We analysed and evaluated our performances whilst consuming endless amounts of sweet and toffee popcorn! The children were over the moon with their performances and thought of some great ideas for future developments.

Friday morning also saw the children sitting the second part of a multiplication test to try and win themselves a certificate. Well done to: Ella, Callum, Chloe, Kaicie, Gypsy, Chloe, Chloe, Dean and Harry, who have all achieved their Bronze Certificate!

Keep practising those tables!!!

Friday morning also saw 6 Oak being awarded the Attendance Certificate in Reward Assembly! Great effort boys and girls! Let's win it again next week but for having 100% attendance!

The Managerial Half-Time Speech display is up and is looking good - big thanks to Ms Mitchell!

The recorded green screen videos are in the last stages of production and will be available shortly. 


Would you be inspired after hearing these speeches?

Happy December Everyone! Is anyone else super-keen to get their tree and decorations up too?

This morning we have been recording our Sports Manager Speeches in front of a green screen. The children did AMAZINGLY well at this and we are all ecstatic with the results. The next part involves removing the green background and inserting changing room backgrounds in.

Big 'thank you' to all parents and carers who helped their children learn their scripts!

Have a great weekend!

Open morning was a huge success in 6 Oak! Lots of parents came in and got their teeth stuck-in to some fraction, decimal and percent problems. Thank you to all those parents who came along to support your children and the school. We hope you had fun!

You can find more photos and some of the problems we tried on our class Twitter page https://twitter.com/6oak_orchard or search @6oak_orchard.

Hi All,

Welcome to 6 Oak's class page!

This week in Maths we are currently working on converting between fractions, decimals and percent.

In English, we are continuing work on our Sports Manager speeches - they're sounding GREAT and are almost ready for the Green-Screen.

Topic sees the continuation of our World War 2 work - please keep building your Anderson Shelters and completing your own research about the time between 1939 and 1945.

On Friday afternoon, 6 Oak will be creating Christmas tree decorations for the school tree in the hall. Any donations of spare wool would be very much appreciated. Please send any donations to 6 Oak.

Have a great week guys!

Mr W
