Welcome to Oak class page.
Mr Ticehurst and Miss Potter welcome you to Oak Class page!
Forest school takes place on a Thursday in the afternoon, meaning outdoor clothes that will get dirty will be expected. PE this term, which is Dance with Miss Pullinger who is a trained dance teacher, is on a Friday afternoon; please ensure all pupils have their PE kit in school.
Term 4 is focussed on fractions, decimals and percentages with the countdown to Year 6 SAT's well and truly on. Spreading this out over one whole term allows up to slowly build knowledge of fractions, decimals and percentages and converting between them.
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 for terms 4 and 5 is World War 2! We will cover the outbreak of the war, the reasons for it as well as the events that led to it. Later on in the term we will explore topics like rationing, the blitz, shelters and much more.
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.
