Welcome to Oak's web page
Thank you to all those who were able to come to the Harvest festival this week. The children worked really hard on their song and it was lovely to share the result of all that effort with you. In case you missed it the children have asked if they can repeat it at their next class assembly.
In English we looked at and begun to write our own fictional instructions based on the book 'How to wash a woolly mammoth' by Michelle Robinson and Kate Hindley. The children seem to have really enjoyed the idea about of writing fictional guides and have had a good time discussing the pros and cons of being a keeper for prehistoric animals.
In Maths we looked at the use of column method for subtraction. If you practise any of this at home please note the correct term is exchanging not borrowing. We will continue with this next week, applying the skills they have learnt to problems that need reading and understanding, some of which will be .multiple step' problems.
Just a few helpful notes:
P.E - Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons, please remember kits and hairbands.
Homework - Will be another project based study, this has now come out (Fri 15th) and the children can start as soon as they are ready.

School planners - not out and being uses. please keep them in their bags so they can go back and forth. We need these every Friday so we cans stick in new spellings. Check the back for useful information on spellings, phonics, vocabulary and maths support.
Homework - now uploaded
Reading - At least five times a week and reading is always king, if you have not got enough time for homework please put reading as a priority. Enjoy listening, reading to and most importantly taking about what you like in the story with your child, a good conversation really helps them to understand what they have read.
Topic - This term's topic is 'Pre-history' which spans the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Bronze Age. This is a project based homework and the children must complete at least two of various choices by December 11th. Encourage them to put effort into whatever they create considering the amount of time they have to do this.
