Oak, Year 6

Welcome to Oak, Year 6

Year 6 is a lively, fast-paced learning community, which we believe combines the desire to work hard with the need to be mindful and develop ourselves as 'Maltby Citizens': ready for the next step on our individual journeys. 

We demonstrate our values of Achievement, Excellence and Opportunities by:

  • Being committed to achieving our personal best
  • Striving to be excellent ourselves, and challenging this in others to benefit our learning community
  • Engaging in as many wider opportunities as we possibly can
     

CURRENT CURRICULUM THEME:

Our Big Question is: What is home?

The question ' What is home?' leads us to consider life during WW2. We will explore themes such as homelessness through evacuation and loss during the blitz: rationing and hardship alongside key historical figures such as Churchill and Hitler. 

Using a range of fiction and non-fiction texts, we will build on our reading fluency and stamina, at the same time building our technical vocabulary and understanding of what was a significant period in British history.
