Oaks

Welcome to Oak class page.

I hope that all of you have had a restful Christmas and enjoyable break. We have a lot of learning scheduled for the term and will hit the ground running from day one.

Victorians

The children will be studying this period of history during the first half-term.

Maths

Our units for this term will be focusing on all areas of fractions including the use of the four operations with fractions and their link to decimals and percentages.

These units are taken from White Rose Maths

English

We will be beginning a new unit based around 'The Journey'. The teaching sequences are taken from Power of Reading.

Reading

As a class we really enjoy reading and we are all aiming to read 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.

80% is the passmark and if you successfully achieve this for a number of books you will move up a level. If you don’t pass it is possible that you will move down a level so that you can pass the tests.

Homework

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.

Times tables

We use Times tables rock stars to support your child's learning. It is essential that they access the website everyday so to support the development in the recall of the facts. The quicker your child can recall the information, the quicker they will progress up the leader board.
