Class 7 - Miss Collinge

All about Class 7

Welcome to Class Seven with year five and six, our teacher, Miss Collinge and teaching assistant, Mrs Bradshaw. 


Here on our class page you can find our long term curriculum plan which shows what we will be learning throughout the year. 

Check the heading next to the long term plan to see which year we are following this year. 

We will keep you up to date with our learning by posting regular photos of what we have been up to. 

Don't forget to keep an eye on our Facebook page too. 



What have we been up to in Class Seven?

Our English text in Spring Term was the Wizard of Oz. At the beginning of our topic, we created our very own weather reports for the people of Kansas to warn them of the upcoming cyclone. 

It just so happens that on filming day, the weather made our forecasts even more authentic! Luckily, unlike Dorothy's home, no-one found themselves carried off to Munchkin Land by the wind! 


In PE this year we have worked together to create our own dance sequences in role as heroes and villains and we have revised counter balances and counter tensions in gymnastics before transferring them onto our brand new climbing frame. This was tricky but we soon got the hang of it. 

We have been developing our attack and defense skills in netball and even discussed the different tactics we can use in invasion games. In the Spring term, we developed our own invasion games based on a model similar to rugby. We had real fun developing these and loved tested out an evaluating each other's games. 



We were lucky enough to be visited by Ancient Egyptian expert, Professor Tuesday, who taught us how the ancient civilisation began, the ways in which the River Nile was used, five very important pharaohs and our personal favourite: the mummification process. 

We created our own class timeline and explored a number of Ancient Egyptian artefacts. 

You will notice that our curriculum is split into cycles this is due to the mixed age classes we have here at St Oswald's.

Reading in Class 7

Like our other Key Stage 2 classes, we too use the Collins Big Cat and Oxford reading schemes.  The reading books are broken into bands; each band contains a range of fiction, non-fiction and poetry books. We use these books for guided reading lessons and as home readers. It is important that children read regularly at home and we encourage you to share books as much as possible. 


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 contacting several authors and we're pleased to say we have had some amazing replies.


If you are looking for a book recommendation, check out the reading recommendation lists below. A great number of these texts can already be found in our class or school library. 


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.  

In Key Stage 2 we follow the  No Nonsense Spelling scheme.

Homework in Class Seven is handed out on a Monday and usually includes maths, reading and spelling work. 

Children are expected to complete their homework and hand it in on a Thursday.  If your child needs help with their homework, please send it back to school on Tuesday or Wednesday so we can assist. 


If you have any concerns about your child's homework, please do not hesitate to contact school.
