Welcome to Oak's web page
It has been a busy week and the children have definitely been working hard. Just one more week until they get to have a rest! Please can you send your child in with their first round of homework next week (beginning 15th) so they can share it with their peers and the rest of the school.
In English the children have completed researching areas of interest and creating notes ready for their own information books. The children have all made their own books and are now working hard to fill them with their research ready for you to see during parents evening.
In maths the children have continued to read problems and use RUCSAC to decide if they need to use mental or written methods. They have been solving a range of subtraction calculations and a mix of one or two step word problems.
Well done to Joel for taking home our fluffy dinosaur, Yoshi!
Show and tell - after a few missing children or regularly forgetting about show and tell, we will choose new children and start sending a little reminder card home with them from next Monday .
Just a few helpful notes:
P.E - Monday afternoons (Real PE) and Wednesday mornings, please remember kits and hairbands.
Homework - This will be another project based study - this term will have a history and a science focus, Prehistory (settlements as opposed to last years tool use) and states of matter / rocks and minerals. More information will come out with the topic letter handed out on the 'Meet the teacher' afternoon / evening.
Doodle maths: 40 - 70 stars a week.
Reading - Five sessions a week at least please.
Spellings - Friday mornings.
Times tables- Friday mornings.
School planners - Please keep these in their bags. The children will add their new spellings into their planners on Friday.
Homework - now available to download
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 has a historical and science focus, the letter was sent out 21/9 and is available at the bottom of this page.
Spelling - ss or ce?
use SS at the end of the word if it follows a short vowel (a = 'ah' sound)
use CE at the end of the word if it follows a long vowel (a = 'ay' sound) or after an n.

There will be two mystery bonus words next week that use the above rule. Each word is worth three team points each!
Tables - every Friday morning and returned to the children Monday - to allow for marking time.
