OAK (HS) 2020 - 2021

Mrs Shaw

Oak Class.

Our class has 3 members of staff – Mrs Shaw, Reece and Charlie.

 

You will find information on this page to keep you up to date with everything we will be learning this half term.

 

Everyone in our class loves getting wet, so luckily this half term the swimming pools in Manchester have remained open!  Our swimming day is Wednesday, so please make sure you send the kits in for that.

It is useful to send your child in in trainers as we are often outside, and play sport during break times.  Also, a waterproof coat, and something warm underneath will be needed as the weather gets colder and wetter as we do go out into the forest area sometimes.

 

Every Friday we have Special Breakfast where we give our certificates to our Rights Respecting Superstars and find out which Duty bearers have earned an extra special mention too.
 

We have a whole school focus on reading this year, so we are encouraging parents to read with their child as often as possible.  If you would like extra books sending home, then please just let us know!

This half term our vehicle for learning is

AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 DAYS

English:

We are focussing on using books that help us to entertain.

Some of our books include;

Around the world in 80 days – we have a few different versions of them, and we will be comparing and contrasting them too.

Mrs Fanshawe and the Great Dragon Adventure is a lovely imaginative book, and we hope that your child will write a lovely story once they have done some focussed learning about sentence types based on this.

Maths:

We will continue with our half termly cycle of 2 weeks of place value, addition and subtraction, multiplication and division and then fractions.  We use Numicon in school, and we will also be doing some Geometry, Space and Measure.

Geography:

Countries around the World, rivers and canals, as well as looking at some mountain ranges and volcanoes that have helped to change our physical world will also be touched upon

History:

In history we will be looking at how Britain has had an influence on the World.
Science:

Our focus this half term will be forces, like air pressure, water resistance, friction and gravity, and we will be looking at this by concentrating on the different modes of transport used in the book ‘Around the World in Eighty Days’.

RSE:
In RSE, we will be learning about Relationships and Anti-bullying, including E-safety.

Art:

We are very lucky to have an artist come in and work with us each half term, where we will be looking at art from other cultures, and will continue to do this during our lessons too.

 

We are trying to get better at keeping in touch with you using Class Dojo, so please keep an eye out for more stories about what we have been doing in Oak class here:
