Welcome to Oak class page.

Mr Ticehurst and Miss Potter welcome you to Oak Class page! 

Important information. 

Forest school takes place on a Thursday in the afternoon, meaning outdoor clothes that will get dirty will be expected. PE this term is on a Thursday afternoon, please ensure all pupils have their PE kit in school. We are lucky to have an external golf teacher come in and will try to ensure this takes place outside (weather permitting) - for this, jogging bottoms and jumpers are allowed and encouraged.

 

Maths. 

Term 2 will be focusing on the four operations and all things number. This will consolidate mathematical understanding before moving on to more taxing subjects. 

 

English. 

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. 

 

Topic. 

Our topic lessons cover both Geography and Science, as well as Art and History. The topic this term is Out of this World! The focus will be based on Earth, space, shadow and gravity; all of which will be evident throughout our work.  

 

Home Learning. 

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.
