Oak Class is taught by Miss Adams (4 days), alongside Mrs Lee (1 day) on a Wednesday. Our teaching assistant is Miss Gibbs.
P.E. and Swimming
Swimming lessons will be held every Wednesday morning at Malvern College. All children will need to bring a swimming kit and girls are required to wear a swimming hat. As the weather is getting colder, it is imperative that the children bring a coat with them on swimming days.
P.E. will be held on a Tuesday afternoon and all children are expected to have their kits in school.
Throughout the year, the children will have the opportunity to represent their school in various sporting events such as Cross Country, Netball and Football. If your child is selected, they will be sent a letter detailing what they require for the event.
The children will be set homework every two weeks. The homework will be set on a Friday and will be due in on a Wednesday. The homework will alternate between Maths and English so that the children have the opportunity to demonstrate and share their learning at home. We also encourage the children to read at home, ensuring that they sign their reading record and make a comment about their book. We have introduced a new reading challenge this year to encourage all children to read at home, who will be the champion?
On Friday 11th October, 25 children represented The Grove at the West Worcestershire Cross Country Event, held at Peachfield Common. The children were given the option of running over 750m or 1500m. The terrain is tricky even in dry conditions and the children coped with the changing weather extremely well, even running in the torrential rain, without so much as a moan. The children did magnificently well and proudly represented the school. Well done to all the children who competed and a special shoutout to Maja who came 5th in the Year 6 girls Intermediate race (750m).
SATs Information and Useful Links
The Year 6 children will be working towards their SATs this year. They will undertake lots of practise in school, however, there are also resources that the children can utilise to enrich their learning at home.
