Welcome to Oak's web page Updated Friday 25h September.
We have seen a clear change in the seasons this week, from warm sunshine when we started to rain, wind, leaves and (most importantly) conkers! We have had a busy week and have had to overcome some challenges but it ended well with a spectacular whole class conker battle. Knuckles were red, bruises were earned and the occasional conker cracked.
We have completed our own next step in the story of 'Winter's Child' with the change of the seasons. The children continued the story how the felt it would be told. Along the way the learnt more about the use of conjunctions in compound sentences and some of us are trying our best to use subordinate clauses in complex sentences. Next week we'll be starting a new story with these skills added on to.
The children have applied their understanding of place value to measuring this week. They have used metre sticks and rulers to measure in different challenges and have moved on to finding the difference between two numbers. Next week, we'll continue with 'finding the difference' and practice their use of formal written methods.
Should we have a bubble or school closure, a link will be posted to Oak's google classroom with home learning uploading for the duration. Home > Children > Class Pages > work for school closure > Oak

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.
