Class Oak 2021-2022

Welcome to Oak Class
 
It's been so good to be back at school.
 
In Oak class, we aim to develop the children's independence along with their passion for learning. Throughout their learning journey this year, they will have the opportunity to try new things, build upon what they know and investigate things that are new.
 
Below you can find our 'Health Body, Healthy Mind' topic web and homework choices for this half term.
 
PE is on Wednesdays and Thursdays.
Library will be on alternate Thursdays.
 
Please ensure that your child has the required equipment in school.
 
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to get in touch either via the link book or email (tpenny@berryhill.gloucs.sch.uk).
 
Please follow the link to our 'Meet The Teacher' video below; it will hopefully provide you with the basic information that you need to know for this year. Any questions, don't hesitate to get in touch!
 
Mr. Penny and Mrs. Scott.
 
 
N.B. Mrs. Scott is now working from home prior to starting her maternity leave. Please direct any correspondence to Mr. Penny.
In Oak Class, we believe that it is important to know what is going on in the world around us. When possible, we like to watch CBBC Newsround and have conversations about current events. Below is a link to the CBBC Newsround should you wish to do the same at home.

Transition to Secondary
 
Moving from primary school to secondary school sees big fish in small ponds suddenly becoming the tiny ones again. It’s an exciting time with new surroundings, new routines and new timetables. There are also new friends, new sports, and, well... new everything.
 
This all makes for an intensely challenging time. A common misconception made is parents thinking that a secondary-aged child doesn’t need them as much. In reality, whilst the needs change, they need you just as much. Investing the time in the transition from primary to secondary school will not only allow for them to settle in quickly, but also pave the way for a positive relationship for you both as you head into the teen years.
 
Below are some resources to help the children's final year at Berry Hill be one that they remember fondly and one that helps best prepare them for the exciting transition to secondary school.
