Welcome to Oak Class

Mrs Davey, Mrs Taylor and Miss McCarthy


Welcome back! Our first topic will be 'The Groovy Greeks' (Ancient Greece).

During our English lessons, we will be studying a range of different Greek Myths and Legends including 'Theseus and the Minotaur' and 'Odysseus'. We will use these stories as a stimulus to produce a range of narrative and non-fiction pieces and to learn and embed a variety of spelling and grammar rules.  

Within Maths, we will be starting the year by looking at place value and number and then moving onto the four operations. We will be consolidating mental strategies and embedding our times table knowledge as well. An ongoing theme will be problem-solving and the strategies required to question, deduce and solve.

During Topic lessons, we will be learning about daily life in Ancient Greece and the role of the government, scholars and philosophers as well as life today and how it has been influenced by history.

Our Science topic this term is ‘Properties and changes of Materials’ where we will be learning about thermal and electrical conductors; dissolving and irreversible chemical changes.



As you can imagine, the first term back will be slightly different for a number of reasons.

Please help us to keep children and staff as safe as possible.

- Please ensure your child has a named water bottle in school every day.

- The children are not required to bring in any stationary or pencil cases from home as it is all provided at school. They will have their own set in their tray which is directly underneath their desk.

- Please make sure that your child comes to school in PE kit on a Tuesday and Thursday because these will be the days when we do PE during term 1.
