All about Class 7|
Welcome to Class Seven with year five and six, our teacher, Miss Collinge and teaching assistant, Miss Irving.
Here in class seven we cover a range of exciting topics. Our favourites include natural disasters, inventors and their inventions and Mexico and the Aztecs. We follow the Lancashire topics for both Literacy and Mathematics and Come and See for R.E.
Like the rest of the school, we never miss the opportunity to go on lots of wonderful trips such as visits to the theatre and our three day residential to Hothersall Lodge.
If you wish to know more about class seven, please do not hesitate to contact the school.
Within Class Seven, the children 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 too 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, we will study a range of novels as part of the literacy curriculum.
We're crazy about reading in class seven and love to see what the latest addition to our reading shelf is. With the help of our teacher, we've been Tweeting several authors and we're pleased to say we have had some amazing replies.
In a very exciting start to the year, we held our very own Class Seven Book World Cup where we selected books we would like to read as our class novel. It was a tricky task with many discussions about which to choose - we just wish we could read them all! The lucky winners so far have been the rather chilling Room 13 by Robert Swindells and our current read: Wonder by R.J. Palacio.
During daily spelling lessons, we cover spelling rules that are taken from the Year 5 and 6 curriculum. Spelling lists are created based on the rule or objective for our weekly session and sent home as part of our weekly homework.
Throughout school we follow the No Nonsense Spelling scheme.

Homework in class seven is handed out on a Monday and usually includes maths, literacy and spelling work.
Children are expected to complete their homework 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.
Children who bring homework back to school completed well and on time each week will be enetered into our prize draw. Could this be you?
If you have any concerns about your child's homework, please do not hesitate to contact school.
