Mighty Oaks - Y6

Welcome to Y6 Mighty Oaks

Our teachers are Mrs. James and Mrs. Law. We are supported by Mrs. Hoadley.

We believe that working cooperatively with others is the key to learning. We always aim high but also know that making mistakes is sometimes the best way to move forward. Our class environment is one that promotes fun, kindness and team spirit and we like nothing more than a challenge. 


What Are We Learning?
Below you can find an overview of our learning for the whole year and also more detail for each term and the sequence which we will follow to help build our knowledge in each subject.
We use our Knowledge Organisers to help us identify key information that we need to know and remember.

In the first half of the Autumn term most of our learning is driven by science and the theme, ‘Have a Heart’ - the circulatory system. During this half term, we lead the school in a fundraising event for the British Heart Foundation.
