Year 6 Oak Class 2019 - 2020

Miss Comish

In Year 6 we RESPECT our environment, our belongings, our teachers, our friends and ourselves. 

In Year 6 we ENJOY every moment and opportunity.

In year 6 we BELIEVE in our hopes, our dreams, eachother and ourselves. 

Please see our Autumn topic web attached below, detailing our thematic curriculum for the Autumn term. 


Our first topic is 'The circle of Maya Life'.We will be studying the magnificent Maya; dicsovering where and when the Maya built their civilisation and investigating how they lived, their culture and their legacy. We will compare our lives to their own and explore how their history impacted our lives today. Our over-arching topic will also support our science learning of 'Evolution and Inheritance', as well as our geographical focus on 'South America' and the 'Southern Hemisphere'. 


The stimulus for our our narrative, explanation, journalistic and discussion writing will be our main class texts 'The Selfish Giant' by Oscar Wilde, Gullivers Travels, retold by Martin Jenkins, Jemmy Button by Alix Barzelay and 'The Island' by Jason Chin. Each half term we will also focus our learning on an inspiring character from the book series 'Little People, Big Dreams', quite simply because Miss Comish thinks they are amazing.

Some little notes...


Please ensure all children have a PE kit in school every week, Monday- Friday. We provide many sporting opportunities in addition to your child's regular PE lessons which we be on a Monday and a Friday. Please also ensure your child's PE kit is appropriate for both indoor and outdoor PE throughout the Autumn term.

Outdoor Shoes...

All children must have outdoor shoes which are kept in school Monday- Friday. This will ensure all children can enjoy full use of the outdoor environment at Lunchtimes. 


Homework will be sent home on a Friday and must be completed by the following Tuesday. I completely understand how busy life can be so if this is not possible in a particular week, please do not hesitate to speak to me before the Tuesday hand in. Homework will alternate between subjects each week alongside an expectation of daily reading. Weekly spellings will be set alongside homework for our test on a Wednesday. 


Year 6 is a very busy class and there is lots of information throughout the year. If you have any questions or queries, please do not hesitate to make an appointment to meet with me at the end of the school day. I will always make it a priority to chat with you. There will be a SATS evening in January and a York Residential Meeting in May. I look forward to seeing you at the 'Meet the Teacher' evening in September.
