All about Class 7|
The children have now reached their final class at St Oswald's. Within this class we have Year 5 and 6. They are sometimes called Upper Key Stage 2.
Within this class the children will cover a range of exciting topics. These include studying the author Michael Morpurgo, the Vikings and Anglo-Saxons in History and the Human Body in Science.
Like the rest of the school, the children get the chance to go on lots of wonderful trips that vary each year. These have included; Bridgewater Hall in Manchester, Cuerden Park and a range of different theatres across Lancashire.
Also in Class 7 we offer the opportunity for all children to go on a three day residential trip to Hothersall Lodge. Whilst there the children learn how to rock climb, abseil, canoe, build shelters and many more wonderfully adventurous things!
If you wish to know more about the Year 5 and Year 6 curriculum, please do not hesitate to contact school.
Within Class 7, the chidlren will cover a range of topics across the curriculum. Due to the amount of history and geography topics that the children are required to study in Key Stage Two and the mixed aged classes that we have at St Oswald's, we run a four year cycle.

Reading in Class 7|
Within Class 7 we use the Collins Big Cat reading scheme which caters for children from Reception to Year 6. The reading books are broken into bands; each band contains a range of fiction, non-fiction and poetry books.
As well as reading from the Collins scheme, children will study a range of novels as part of their guided reading work and as our whole class read.
The children will be taught all of the spelling rules that are taken from the Year 5 and 6 curriculum. They will be taught the rule within school and then, in the following weeks homework, they will be given words based on these rules to learn. The children will then be tested on either Thursday or Friday.
We follow a scheme called No Nonsense Spelling.

In Class 7, the children will receive homework every Monday. As part of their homework, the children will receive a piece of maths work, a piece of literacy work and their spellings to practice.
The children will be expected to complete their homework in pencil and hand it in on a Thursday. If for any reason your child is stuck on their homework, they must bring it back in on Tuesday or Wednesday and an adult in class will help them with it.
If the children have brought their homework in, on time and complete each week, they will be entered into a homework prize competition.
If you have any concerns about your child's homework, please do not hesitate to contact school.
