Maple - Year 6
Contact Mr Oakes
For any queries or just to say hello!
Hello and welcome to Maple class! My name is Mr Oakes and I’m teaching your child this year with Miss Castle supporting me in class. I have been at Upton Noble now for 3 years and have been teaching for just over 9. Over that time, I have realised more so with each passing year, just how important reading is.
Our topic for term 1 is WW1 and this will provide the stimulus for much of our learning across the curriculum. We will find out about the causes of the Great War as well as key battles, the Christmas truce and many other important areas. Our class texts will be Michael Morpurgo’s brilliant Warhorse and Private Peaceful stories which we will learn about in great depth. We will provide your child with a copy of these. Along-side this, our class stories (where I simply read aloud to the children) will be High Rise Mystery and The Boy at the Back of the Class. We unfortunately, don’t have copies of these, but please feel free purchase them for your child so they can read along with me.
