Inspire and Aspire

Welcome to Mighty Oaks! (Years 5 and 6)

We are taught by Mrs Humphreys and Mrs Ince.


In Mighty Oaks we work very hard and have a great attitude to our learning.

We always try our best and never give up even when things get a bit tricky!


Our exciting topic for the Spring term is ...


Our work during this topic will include:

Reading 'The Jungle Book' by Rudyard Kipling

Studying the Mayan civilisation

Finding out about jungle environments


Plus many more interesting and varied learning opportunities - see below for our topic map in full.


This term, we are really lucky to be taking part in the DARE programme. It's very important that each child keeps their DARE workbook up-to-date, completing the lesson reviews weekly. 


Remember... a completed DARE book = a certificate of graduation - hooray!!!


Date of DARE Graduation - Tuesday 27th March at 2.30pm.

More information to follow.


Please learn the DARE song for your graduation:

Mrs Humphreys and Mrs Ince are really impressed by the children in Mighty Oaks that continue their learning at home. Ways you can do this are:

  • Practising your spellings
    Reading at least 3 times a week
  • Completing your homework and handing it in on time (Wednesdays)
  • Practising your times tables
  • Spending time on Mathletics 



Don't forget...our fantastic residential visit to Beaumanor Hall is booked for June 2018! We can't wait for some outdoor and adventurous fun!

Here are some highlights from our Autumn term topic - Lights, Camera, Action!


We went to the Goose Fair, Nottingham, to research fairground rides to help us with our DT work. Here are some of the rides we saw...




We've even composed music!   Can you hear our dancing fairies, huntsmen, lovers' theme, wind and braying of Bottom in our take on Mendlessohn's Midsummer Night's Dream Overture?
