Welcome to Oak's web page
So with just one week left his half term we have our trip to Ufton Court on Monday to look forward to. It is normal uniform just make sure your children are equipped with a sensible coat for any bad weather, packed lunch and a drink. Hopefully we'll have a bit of fun on Monday!
As wonderful as the snow was (wonderful if you didn't have to drive in it!) it has of course postponed our assembly. Having had Maples this Friday (8th) and next Friday being an inset day it will have to be booked after the half term break. When we have a sensible date we will inform you and the children.
In English we have completed our newspaper (expect a copy soon) and these will be distributed around the school to the cries of 'EXTRA EXTRA..' This week we have used a bit of acting, freeze framing, drawing and discussion to understand all the kinds of life along the Nile both modern and ancient. We will use this understanding to write their own non-chronological reports next week.
In maths we have been building on our understanding of place value, addition and subtraction when we have had to exchange (borrow) and regroup (carry). We have used a lot of hands on resources to help them understand this process with lots of opportunities for challenge. Next week we'll apply these to some word problems that will require these skills and a bit more thought.
We'll pick a yoshi winner next week :)

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.
