School Closure 18th February 2022
Morning Oak Class!
I have uploaded two maths tasks below this post for you to complete.
Please choose your level.
Spellings would have been a test. Please also recap the spelling words from throughout this half term.
We will finish your volcano news articles after half term but please do write an article about storm Eunice and how she is having an impact our lives today. This could be as a newspaper article, online news article or a video. We can share these next half term :)
Art- If you have time you could create a piece of art based on a storm or a volcano.
As always, please spend time on Times Table Rockstars too!
Some parents have been in contact about Doodle Maths. Doodle recommended to me that students should redo the baseline assessment, as it has not been carried out for a long time. Due to this, when students log on it will ask you to complete questions so it can work out your understanding. Please make sure you put in your correct birthday (and year!) or the computer gets confused.
Hope you all have a lovely half term break and stay safe!
Please do email me if you have any questions.
Firstly, Oak staff would like to say a big thank you for our Christmas gifts.
We all hope you have a lovely enjoyable and restful break.
It is clear that the students have been putting in lots of effort to improve their times tables knowledge. This has been noticeable by their stats on Times Table Rockstars and by their results in the class tests. Keep up the hard work!
Maths - Times Tables
Year 4 will have the Government Multiplication Tables Check Assessment in the summer term. By the end of Year 4 they should know all their times tables (1-12) and the corresponding division facts.
All Oak class have been given Times Table Rockstar account.
If this gets lost please ask your child to ask for a reminder.
When they log on (ttrockstars.com) they will need to put in - Ashford Hill Primary and then username & password.
There are several options of games to play.
Garage: Individual set times tables. This is the most important game to play.
Studio: All times tables.
Sound Check: a similar version to the Government's multiplication tables check. It is fast!
Please also ensure your child is accessing their Doodle Maths.
If you have any questions please do contact me.

Welcome to Oak Class 2021/22
Oak class is a mixed class of Year 4 and Year 5 children.
Oak class teacher is Mrs Purton and our LSA is Mrs Wallace.
It has been a busy week and a half back for us all! It has been great to see the children being so positive and helpful to each other.
On Monday, we had a thoroughly enjoyable trip to Farmer Gow’s. We learnt about aquaponics and growing vegetables. Over the coming week, we will be doing some work on this.
Please can planners be filled out at home and then brought into school on Friday for a planner check.
Please ensure PE kit is always in school. PE will be two afternoons a week.
Year 5’s will soon start swimming on a Tuesday afternoon.
I have reset Doodle Maths passwords for those who said they could not remember them. Students have been told what their new password is.
If you have any questions please do come and ask me at the start or end of the school day.
