Oak Class

In Oak Class we are aiming for our children to be independent learners and secondary school ready.They will need to be able to organise themselves and their equipment, for example having appropriate PE equipment in school everyday (navy blue shorts, white school top, trainers and track suits if cold). The children in Oak Class act as role models for younger members of the school and therefore we expect them to be polite and well-mannered at all times.

Term 6

Our World!

Welcome back to the final term of the year, yet another busy one. Although we are happily passed SATs, we are still working hard to perfect our Maths skills and to apply all our writing skills in a range of different genre.

In Maths, Year 5 will be finishing learning about converting metric measures, before moving on to finding the mean average and some work on areas and perimeters. Year 6 will have the opportunity this term of applying their mathematical knowledge through a number of challenges.

In English, Oak Class will be investigating an imaginary planet called Pandora through drama and role play activities which will enable them to write in a variety of genre. They will then be using a lovely picture book called The Promise, which we will link to environmental issues.

This term we also have the residential trip to PGL at Windmill Hill to look forward to from the 1st -3rd July. On the 5th July, the class will be spending the day at Bredgebury, reading maps, riding bikes on one of their trails and finding things in nature to inspire writing.

PE will take place on Tuesday and Wednesday, but please could the children have their PE kit in school at all times.

The children will be rehearsing the end of term production, Mary Poppins Jr, throughout this term. Please help them to learn their lines and to practice the songs as they will need to be word perfect. As a change from the normal spelling and grammar homework, this term I will be setting them songs to learn. Mathletics and the topic homework will be set as normal.

Many thanks

Homework

The words for the Spelling Bee at the end of term are attached at the bottom of the page. The children are expected to learn these for a class competition in the last week of term. Please can you help your children by playing spelling games with them.

In Oak Class, a topic project is set at the beginning of each term. The children should spend at least the equivilent of 20 - 30 minutes per week. They will then present their project to the rest of the class towards the end of term. 

Homework is set on a Monday, due in the following Monday. This term this will comprise of Mathletics and learning words for the production. However, it is very important that the children should continue to read and practice their times tables (see below). 

We are having a big push to help all our children to have a secure understanding of times tables up to 12 times. Please can you support your child at home to ensure they have a really good and quick recall of these number facts. Playing games, particularly in the car or on the walk to school is always a good time to practice, as is doing an extra 10 minutes times tables practice on Live Mathletics (level 3 and above) or the Times Tables Toons section.  There is a document link at the bottom of the page that also gives ideas of how you can help your children.

Please help your child to allocate time to complete their homework; not only does it re-inforce their current learning but also sets them up with the correct work ethic for secondary school.
