Welcome to Oak Class – Year 5/6
In Oak Class we promote an ethos of wanting to achieve and developing an ownership over their learning. We ensure your child reaches their full potential so they can move on to secondary school confident in their abilities, independent, responsible and ready for the next stage in their education.
Welcome back to School – Autumn Term 2018

Oak Class were evacuated on Wednesday 4th October!
On the 4th October Oak Class and Sheepstor from Lady Modiford’s, went on a joint trip to the South Devon Stream Railway Station and Museum in Buckfastleigh as part of our World War Two topic. As we stopped off the coach, the smell of smoke from the stationary steam Engine hit us in the face and made us look over to the platform where our train stood, billowing smoke. It was a very exciting day. We explored a Wartime Garden and Anderson Shelter, went on a train ride to Totnes and back on the steam railway, tried on tin helmets and had fun leaning about ambulances and hospital, then we were shown round the Museum by our guide, who told us about how trains work! Overall it was an amazing day and we all discovered lots about WW2.

Monday 22nd May 2017
John Boston (University Lecturer in Accountancy and Mrs Boston’s husband!) came to talk to Oak Class about profit and loss and how to run a successful business for their Fiver Challenge. He inspired the children to think carefully about their business ideas, making sure they choose the right product or service to sell to make a profit.
We have been looking at different visual poetry by Andy Goldsworthy and then created our own using natural objects from the school grounds.
Here are some of our fabulous Free Verse Poems – Enjoy!
