Welcome to Oak class page.
Welcome back term 3. We hope that you all had a restful half-term.
The children will be studying the North American continent for their curriculum focus including looking at the human and physical aspects of North America, including Canada and USA.
Our units for this term will be focusing on fractions and decimals.
These units are taken from White Rose Maths
The children will be starting this term with looking at the genre of Science-Fiction and look to create our own ficitional story with a flashback based on War of The Worlds. We will then move onto Non-Fiction and be creating an explanation around a time-machine.
We will also be focusing heavily on both Spag and handwriting to help reinforce skills learnt last year and build upon them going forward.
As a class we really enjoy reading and we will read for at least 20 minutes a day. On completion of reading a book an AR test needs to be completed and this will see how much you remember.
If you are looking for new books for your child to read, this website is definitely worth a look: https://www.booktrust.org.uk/books-and-reading/bookfinder/ . It can suggest books based on genre and reading age as well as new books and children's classics.
Our homework is given out once a week on a Friday and should be returned by the Wednesday of the following week to allow for it to be marked. It is essential that work is completed as it is selected to support the learning for that week. The homework comprises of either: handwriting, TTrockstars or comprehension.
We use Times tables rock stars to support your child's learning. It is essential that they access the website everyday to support their development in the recall of the facts. The quicker your child can recall the information, the quicker they will progress up the leader board.
