Welcome to Oak's web page
We have finally reached the end of our stories! Oak Class have all worked tremendously hard on their creative sci-fi stories and all deserve a big pat on the back. They have learnt it is not about using lots of a descriptive device but a little bit of different styles of writing, sentences, punctuation, adjectives, fronted adverbials... the list goes on but by using a bit of everything they have created fantastic pieces stories. They even got to enjoy the lovely weather, sat around the field, reading and listening to each others work.
In maths, we have been looking at lines of symmetry but also how to draw shapes using rulers and protractors with a high level of accuracy. This lead to some investigation of the inside angles of regular shapes. We will continue to learn about both lines of symmetry and reflective symmetry over two and even four quadrants next week.
