Welcome to Oak class page.
Mr Ticehurst and Miss Potter welcome you to Oak Class page! We hope you have enjoyed a lovely summer break and are ready to get stuck in this year.
Swimming takes place on a Thursday morning (until mid-October), which means kit will be required. Forest school also takes place on a Thursday but in the afternoon, meaning outdoor clothes that will get dirty will be expected. PE this year is on a Friday afternoon, please ensure all pupils have their PE kit in school.
Term 1 will be focusing on place value and all things number. This will consolidate mathematical understanding before moving on to more taxing subjects. Following place value, we will be recapping our understanding of the four operations which will take us up to term 2.
There will be lots of focus on writing stamina this term, enabling and encouraging children to be able to write freely with great expression and at length. Descriptive writing, persuasive writing and debating will all feature in English this term alongside work on adjectives, sentence structure and writing devices.
Our topic lessons cover both Geography and Science, as well as Art and History. The topic this term is Iceberg Ahead! The focus will be based on the Titanic, which will be evident in all of our work from English to Art.
Seesaw is the platform we are using to engage with parents but also conduct home learning. Homework will be set on a Monday and due on a Friday via spellingframe.co.uk and mathsframe.co.uk. Please ensure you are regularly checking your Seesaw family and/or student account for regular updates.
At this time it is very important to ensure that children are staying safe online. The link below will allow you to access a set of home learning packs designed to help children stay safe.
