Welcome to Oak class page.

Welcome back term 4. We hope that you all had a restful half-term. 

History

The children will be studying the history of the USA for their curriculum focus including looking at the American revolution and the slave trade

Maths

Our units for this term will be focusing on fractions, decimals and percentages as well as area and perimeter, shape, and statistics. 

These units are taken from White Rose Maths

English

The children will be starting this term with looking at the book, 'Floodlands'. Children will create a variety of different writing of different text types including narrative and report. 

We will also be focusing heavily on both Spag and handwriting to help reinforce skills learnt last year and build upon them going forward.

Reading

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.

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 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.
