'The Lost Sheep' Luke 15:4-7


Miss Down, Mrs Button and Mrs Crosby welcome you to take a look at all the wonderful learning happening in Oak Class! Term 6 has come around so fast and it looks like it's going to be a busy, exciting one. 

Important information: 

Forest School takes place every Monday, so the children will need clothes in school that can get dirty. This includes wellies for when we have particularly wet days! A reminder that children need to be wearing long sleeved items of clothing and trousers for Forest School. PE happens every Thursday, so we ask that the children come into school on Friday mornings in their full PE kits.

This term in Maths, we will be spending a lot of our time improving and developing our reasoning and investigation skills. Children will be looking at problems in different contexts and will be exploring multiple methods to solve trickier questions. This will involve us re-visiting some work on the four operations, fractions and shape and measure.

For Writing this term, we will be writing for a variety of audiences and exploring different genres such as: balanced arguments, news reports, persuasive letters and diary entries. Some of the grammatical features we will practice and use are: parenthesis, subordinate clauses, passive voice and semi-colons. We will continue to build our spelling skills and practice the Year 3/4 and the Year 5/6 statutory spellings. 



For our Science learning this term, we will be exploring Animals including Humans and this will involve an in-depth look at the human heart and its function. We will explore how blood is pumped around the body and we will also look at the impact of exercise and how this affects how the heart works.  



This term, our topic is called Champions of Change. We will begin by looking at the British Empire and how it began and ended. We will explore what a 'democracy' is and then we will investigate what life might be like for people who do not live within a democracy. We will be looking at individuals who have helped shape significant changes throughout recent history and we will be making a case for why they may be a 'champion of change'.  



Our Big Question this term in RE is: What is it like to be a Muslim in Britain today? This will involve us exploring the 5 Pillars of Islam and what this means for Muslims. We will also be looking at the importance of the Qur'an to Muslims and we will explore some of the key messages it gives. 


The topic for PSHE this term is all about changes that our bodies go through. We will be reflecting on our own self-image and thinking about whether there are ways to boost our self-esteem. We will also be exploring different changes that boys and girls go through in the journey to adolescence and adulthood.
