Welcome to Oak's web page
We've been soldiering on in Oak this week, there have been many bugs about but the children have continued to work when they can. With so much rain at the moment please encourage your child to remember the appropriate clothing.
In English the children finished learning and retelling one of the adventures of Robin Hood - the golden arrow. After visiting the Watermill so see Robin Hood they have been inspired ti learn more about him and a bit of bit of the history for that period. This coming week they will use 'The Golden Arrow' story as a template to create their own Robin Hood adventure.
In maths Oak Class have completed some work on fractions, linking it to their understanding of division. Using language like numerator, denominator and understanding that fractions of a whole must be equal in size.
We have also completed some work multiplying and dividing by ten. Please don't talk about 'adding a zero' when you multiply by ten as it does not work in all situations. Get them to explain to you what they have learnt.
Well done to Bethany for taking home our fluffy dinosaur, Yoshi!

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.
