I am Mrs Oakes and I am the teacher for Jay class this year. I am really excited for the year ahead as I know how brilliant year 6 can be. Yes, we will unquestionably work hard but the rewards are certainly worth it. For example, I know from first hand experience just how great Okehampton will be at the end of the year and I know this is something many of you will have been looking forward to for years. We are also incredibly fortunate (as you will all know already) to have such a brilliant TA in Mrs Elliot who will be in class every day.
Please take a look at the topic web above for an idea as to what we will be focusing on this term. The topic is Ancient Greece and I know many of the children are already gripped by this.
I am a huge reader and this will be a big focus of mine for the year ahead. Please encourage children to read regularly at home as this is such a pivotal part of their development.
We hope that you have a great summer holiday and look forward to hearing all about it in September. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me or book an appointment with the school office.
