Welcome to Oak's web page

 

A rather busy first week back after half term. Thank you to all the parents who were able to make it to parents evening and for being understanding when the timings turned from appointments to wishful thinking!

 

We have begun our new topic of magnets and forces and all the children should have brought home their own designed and drawn magnet maze games.

   

In English we have had a revisit of synonyms, antonyms with a bit of sentence types thrown in this week. They were encouraged to use a variety of descriptive phrases and sentence types when completing three short descriptive write sessions.

 

In Maths we revisited our times tables and different methods for solving multiplications that get a little more challenging. Next week the class will be introduced to division, how it links to their multiplication knowledge and the bus stop method.

 

 

Just a few helpful notes:

P.E - Tuesday afternoons (rugby) and Wednesday mornings, please remember kits and hairbands.

Homework - Will be another project based study.

Doodle maths: 40 - 70 stars a week.

Reading - Five sessions a week at least please.

Spellings - Friday mornings.

Times tables- Friday mornings.

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.

Here are a few examples of science experiments the children can do as part of their homework. It will need to be recorded in a scientific method including prediction, experiment, observations and conclusion. We have discussed being safe but please reiterate this with your children.

Making electrical circuits

Celtic roundhouse models

Iron age shoe making

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 has a science focus on both electricity this half term and forces/magnetism in the second half term. The homework sheet has been sent out and has been uploaded to the site below, along with this terms topic planner, for you to download if you need another copy.
