Welcome to Oak's web page

The children have done well with their first full week back beginning lots of new topics. They have started french, looked into cave art, handling a range of skulls and bones for science as well as other interesting learning activities.


Next week begins with a trip to Butser Ancient Farm. Please send them in dressed for a day outside, packed lunch, snack and water. Currently, the weather looks good so there may not be a need for wellies.



To start their English, the children have read and annotated a copy of 'How to wash a woolly mammoth'. They had to make predictions about what process would be needed to wash a mammoth and then look for a range of imperative verbs. Next week the children will continue to use these instructions as a basis to write their own for a different prehistoric animal.



The children continued to develop their understanding of time, which can be quite a tricky and abstract topic. They have all made good progress and we will continue to use what they have learnt next week when they are challenged with a variety of time tasks.



Just a few helpful notes:

P.E - Monday afternoons (Real PE) and Wednesday afternoons (Mason), please remember kits and hairbands.

Homework - Please check the homework sheet. Your child does not need to choose something topic related. If they have a special interest they can create their own project relating to it. Please ensure whatever they complete that it is a high quality piece of work.

Doodle maths: 40 - 70 stars a week.

Reading - Five sessions a week at least please.

Spellings - Friday mornings.

Times tables- Each child will complete a verbal test on a specific given day, please check the front of their multiplication cards.

School planners - Please ensure these planners are in school every Friday morning and that you have logged all the reading time you have completed with your child in the 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.


Topic - The first terms topic will be 'Prehistory'  however with a different focus from last year. There will be a bigger focus on art and culture which also learning key vocabulary. If your child has a special interest in something different please encourage them to complete a project with this in minds. Their homework does not have to be specific to what they are learning in school as long as their writing and presentation is completed to a high standard.
