Welcome to Oak Class
The children at Milstead excitedly move into Oak Class as they love chance to take on extra responsibilities and to become more independent. House Captains (and adding up the house points), taking the lead in Collective Worship and Church services, looking after our Catkins Buddies and the chance of becoming Head or Deputy Head Boy or Girl are among the things the children relish the most.
In Oak Class, we expand upon all of the learning skills and strategies embedded in earlier year levels while extending their thinking and fostering further independence. All of our learning follows the Upper Key Stage 2 National Curriculum and our Small School, Big Questions curriculum encourages children to develop enquiry based learning and challenges them to push themselves further as they head towards the end of Primary School.
Oak Class, particularly as the children move into Year 6, provides the children with strong foundations as they move towards secondary school. The use of Microsoft Teams for homework and communication encourages the children to take responsibility for their own learning and promotes the effective home learning habits they will need as their schooling progresses.
The Oak Class Team consists of:
Mrs Mason – Class Teacher
Mrs Wrigglesworth – Teaching Assistant
Ms Coomber - Teaching Assistant - specific support
