Welcome to Oak Class!
Oak Class (Year 6) is taught by Mr Nicholson. Miss Burrell-Smith teaches our class on Wednesdays.
During the Summer Term of Year 6, pupils take part in the government's Key Stage 2 Statutory Assessments (SATS) which assesses their of understanding of maths, reading, grammar, punctuation and spelling and writing.
Pupils in Oak Class continue to enjoy weekly Forest School sessions linked to the wider curriculum every Monday. We're very lucky to have our own school wood; the changing natural environment provides a wonderful space for your child to learn, explore and challenge themselves in a safe and familiar setting.
Pupils get the chance to visit Edinburgh during our summer residential. More information about this is available from Miss Robson.
