We have just setup our Google Classroom where you will be able to access the latest learning and interact with your teachers. To use Google Classroom you will need your google login and password which has been posted to you/your parents.
Our Google Classroom is a secure learning platform which can only be accessed with each individual child login which is unique to each pupil. Once in to our classroom you will be able to access learning resources and send work back to the teachers. You will also be able to communicate directly with the teachers to receive feedback on what you have done as well as ask for help if you get stuck.
To access the classroom use the link below or type classroom.google.com into the address bar of your web browser.
Welcome to our new virtual classroom.
Please know we are missing you lots and we will keep updating this section of the website with work and information to see you through this very bizarre time.
Please remember our messages:
- Don't panic
- Keep working hard
- Look after yourself and each other; be patient with your parents and siblings
Please use your Reading Eggs and Mathletics logins (which have been sent home already) to complete additional reading and maths tasks.
We are thinking of you all,
Miss Cryer, Mr Tickle, Miss Irving and Rosie the tortoise :-)
Struggling to structure your day? Why not start off with Joe Wicks' 30 minute PE session. Followed by an hour maths including 15 minutes of TT Rockstars, some arithmetic questions then 30 minutes of maths practice SATs questions. After a quick break, you could do some SPaG and reading. Then in the afternoon have a look at completing some of the CC project work we have put together for you. Remember this only a suggestion so please adapt as you need.
If you need a break why not have a look at Reading Eggs and Mathletics. You can find the the links in the maths and reading tabs below.
I imagine most of you are on Google Classroom by now and have been completing and submitting work on that. If you are not, I suggest you get on it as quick as you can, you are missing out on all the fun!
I hope you are still being safe and kind to those around you, as we all need to be in this current situation.
All the staff have come together and created a music video - 'Oakridge is Better Together'.
If you haven't already seen it, head over to the coronavirus page where there is a link!
Miss Irving :)
Hope you're all okay and surviving day 8 of home schooling! Just in case you're missing us and need something to do, we've just updated the work in the maths, SPaG and reading sections on our page. Remember this work is a suggestion about what you could do.
I've enjoyed seeing lots of your 'Charman's Challenge' responses on Twitter and the creative ideas you have all been coming up with. If you've not taken part now is your chance just have a look on the website each day to see what the challenge is. Don't forget Miss Cryer has just launched a creative writing task!
Like Miss Irving wrote the other day, I was upset about you all winning the TT Rockstars battle but what has made me feel better is that fact there was 162 children playing against 14 teachers!
Anyway keep going and remember to stay safe and keep washing your hands!
Just finished the TT Rockstars battle. We are gutted we lost. Mr Tickle in particular is very upset!
I hope you are all working hard and enjoying the sunshine! There are lots of things on this page to be working on. We have been putting new links to websites on the pages to help you with your learning and to make sure we're challenging you all the time - just like we would at school!
I have also set up a separate challenge page on the maths section, where I will regularly be uploading a maths challenge for you to complete!
If you have the school's Twitter (@OakridgeFed), then you can always tweet us and let us know what you're up to! Use the hashtag #OSFyear6 ..
We miss you all and we hope that you are behaving and working just as hard as you would in school.
Most importantly, remember to be safe, be kind and look after each other.
Miss Irving :)
I hope day 1 of home schooling is going well and no one has been told off by their new teachers! We've added some bits of work to the different sections for you to access and do with some recommended amounts of time for each activity.
I've just spoken to Miss Cryer and she has asked me to let you all know about 'Audible' which has just made hundreds of their titles free whilst schools are closed! Have a look and see what you can find.... https://stories.audible.com/discovery.
Don't forget to keep playing on Times Tables Rockstars, Reading Eggs and Mathletics.
Enjoy the rest of your day, stay safe and listen to your new teachers!
In Year 6, we are taught by Miss Cryer, Miss Irving and Mr Tickle. Sometimes the children are also taught by Mrs Oswald. We are also lucky enough to supported by our dedicated and hardworking volunteers: Mrs Cullen and Mrs Sinani.
We ask that the children have their PE kit in school for the whole week as PE days will change from week to week due to timetable changes.
As part of our artwork we have been developing our skills and techniques in drawing animals. As part of this, today we have been sketching Rosie - Miss Cryer's pet tortoise. She was very still to begin this but then caused chaos as she moved around the room.
In our science work this half term, we have been explore electrical circuits. We began by reminding ourselves about the work we covered on electricity in year 4 before beginning to explore how voltage changes as you add more components to a series circuit.
As part of our artwork we have begun to look at Greek pots and the patterns which might be found them. In doing this the children have replicated and practised using these patterns. They have then created their own versions of Greek pots applying their skills and understanding of the different patterns.
As part of our art work on still life drawing we have begun to explore some of the techniques and skills we will need. We then used this to help us draw pictures of the teddies using the techniques to give the impression of fur.
