Oak Class

Oak Class

We are a mixed Year 5/Year 6 class and Mrs Berber is our teacher. We are also supported by our regular helpers, Mrs Porter and Mrs Crosby.

On Tuesday afternoons we have Mr Robinson for PE and Miss Barnes for French. On Wednesday afternoons, Mrs Jordan teaches year 5 Science and Mrs Berber teaches Year 6 Science and the year groups are split this way for three Maths lessons each week.

In our class, we follow the Y5/6 National Curriculum, in addition to the Nottinghamshire syllabus for RE and the Nottinghamshire Computing Framework.

We are working hard throughout the year to prepare for secondary school and life beyond.
