Maths in Year 5/6

In our Maths area, there are lots of activities and resources to help us learn better within our Maths lessons. Our key vocabulary and problem solving methods help us daily within our lessons to help decide which operations to use. 

Which activities have you used within our area?

Inclusion at Oxford Grove!

In a few weeks, ALL children in Year 6 have been invited to take part in a ‘Crucial Crew’ trip paid for by the school to help support with their Transition to their chosen highschools. It is generally accepted that children start to become more independent at this age and are often expected to cope increasingly on their own and deal with changes in their lives, such as a move to Secondary school.

No matter which highschool you have chosen, this trip will help you to understand what to expect and will support everyone with this 🙂 We are really looking forward to this opportunity !

Pictures will be uploaded to share with other classes and people visiting out blog , keep an eye out ……..

Science in Year 6

In Year 6, we have been learning all about light! We have learnt which materials reflect light the best and how light travels. We have been applying this knowledge to an investigation where we made periscopes! Following this we have written our own detailed set of instructions on how to make a periscope!

What can you remember from our topic?

Can you tell me what the key words: opaque, translucent and transparent mean?

Hindu Temple !

Today, Year 6 visited the Hindu temple and were able to reflect and extend their current knowledge of ‘Hinduism’. 

We watched a Hindu Celebration and listened to a presentation all about this religion! We found out all about why Hindu’s respect the five senses and why they are central to the religion! We had such a good morning!
