Welcome to Oak Class
Miss Verran leads our happy class, ably assisted by Mrs Prior and Mrs Fraser.
Here you can find information about upcoming events, weekly homework and important notices.
If you have any questions or queries, as always you can find me on the playground at the end of the day, or drop the office an email and they will forward it to me.
Forest School is on a Friday afternoon so the children should ensure they bring a suitable change of clothes to school.
P.E. is taught on Monday and Wednesday afternoon so kits should be in school and clearly labelled.
This term we are learning about: The Stone Age, Iron Age and the Romans.
Spelling homework will be handed out on a Friday and the children will be tested on the words the following Friday. A copy of the words can be found on the class page each week.
We have four spellings sessions each week. On Monday we go through the spelling rules and the meanings of the words. On Tuesday the children complete a handwriting activity. On Thursdays the children can choose from a range of taught techniques to practise their spellings. On Fridays they have a spelling test and they are given new spellings for the following week.
Spelling homework – Test on 16/11/18
Oak class will have Maths homework every week on Mathletics (click to login). The children are used to logging on and finding their homework. Please keep this login safe.
Please note - Pupils have been given printed homework this week which will be collected in on Friday 9th November.
In Oak class Maths we complete mini times table tests every Wednesday. The children in this group will know which times table they are on. The mini tests include mixed multiplication and division. They could use worksheets (click for link) to help them practise.
This should be recorded in the children's reading record books (all of which have been given to the children). If your child has misplaced their reading record, reading can be recorded on a piece of paper.
The children are expected to read at home at least 5 times a week. This can be a book from home or their school reading book. Reading record books should be in school every Friday please.The children should hand their reading records to their teacher on a Friday morning where a house point will be awarded if they have read 5 times during that week.
Recommended Reading List
The children read every morning during our Guided Reading sessions in small groups organised by reading fluency and comprehension. Individual readers are listened to during morning registration or during afternoons to assess reading levels. During Guided Reading the children are questioned to think about predicting, identifying words they don't recognise, questioning and summarising (PIQS). The children will also complete written comprehension activities during Guided Reading time.
Reading volunteers are always welcome in our classroom!
