Welcome to Oak class page.
Welcome back to term 3 of 2020/21. We are really looking forward to having you back and continuing our learning although now we know it will be in a slightly different format than expected.
The children will be studying the history of the Victorians for their curriculum focus. This term will be looking at the advent of the railway and the rise of the British Empire.
Our units for this term will be focusing on area, perimeter and volume. We will also be consoldiating our learning around the four operations and fractions, decimals and percentages.
These units are taken from White Rose Maths
The children will be looking at the story of Varmints, which is a complex picture book. The children will be creating a variety of different text types including poetry, debates and narratives.
We will also be focusing heavily on both Spag and handwriting to help reinforce skills learnt last year and build upon them going forward.
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.
