Welcome to Oak Class.
On this page we will publish useful information, including important dates, what we are learning, websites and learning at home that might prove helpful as well as pictures of the children's learning. If you have any questions please feel free to talk to Mrs Parker or Miss Cornfoot, alternatively you can make an appointment via the school office.
This is an unusual term for us all as we won't be doing our learning in the classroom as we normally do. Instead we will all be doing our work at home. Remember to send in as many pictures of your work as possible so we can have a look.
Ways you can help
Ways you can help
- Read with your child for 10 minutes every day, remember to ask and encourage them to ask questions about what they are reading.
- Ask your child to tell you the time. You could show them both analogue and digital clocks to help them become more familiar with reading time in different formats.
- Ask your child to help you to count, money. You could also ask your child to tell you what change you should receive when paying in a shop.
- Support your child with their times tables.
In literacy we will be looking at instructions. At home you may see lots of these including some delicious recipes you may be making. We will also be looking at letter writing thinking about different points of view. We will then be moving onto poetry. We were hoping to finish off the term with some more fiction writing as well as looking at Shakespeare through weekly workshops.
We will still be working hard on becoming more fluent with our times tables ups to 12 x 12. This term is when we really get to grips with all the various maths topics we have covered so far this year. We will be doing lots of problem solving, looking at money and various measuring tasks. We will also be looking more closely at geometry and statistics. Remember to keep checking the time at home to help with that all import skill of telling the time, as we will be working in class on converting time between analogue and digital in both 12 and 24 hour. If you have a few spare moments please encourage your child to log onto TTRockstars.
This term we will be investigating living things and their habitats. We will introduced to MRS GREN and learn how to classify living things. We will be looking at invertebrates and classification keys which help us to identify different invertebrates.
We be looking at places around the world focusing on improving our knowledge of different places. In the second part of the term we will be doing a comparison between the UK and North America.
As we are doing our learning from home our art topic has been adapted and we will be using Youtube videos to really work on and improve our sketching skills. In DT we will be looking at food, designing a menu, making a dish and looking at seasonal ingredients.
For the first part of the term as the majority of your learning will be online you will be practising many of the skills you have learned in the classroom. We will be setting tasks on Google Classroom and also on Purple mash.
This term will be slightly different as you will be keeping active at home by creating circuits, going on bike rides and running outside when you can. If we get back to school for the second half of the Summer we have our Athletics unit of work to practise some skills before sports day and we will be doing some outdoor adventure activities.
During the first half term we will be thinking about why some people think that life is like a journey? How do people mark the significant events of life? In the second half of this term we will be asking What is the ‘Trinity’ and why is it important for Christians? (God/Incarnation)
In music we will continue our learning by using Charanga using singing and thinking about the interrelated dimensions of music.
