Welcome to Oak Class
Miss Tynan leads our happy class, ably assisted by Mrs Prior.
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.
This term we are learning about: Extreme Earth!
Easter Holiday Homework
Our topic next half term is ‘What makes the earth angry?’ In preparation for this, we would like you to research a natural disaster and create an information page about it (poster, fact file or non-chronological report). You could choose from one of the following or find out about another natural disaster:
Mt. Vesuvius in Pompeii
2004 tsunami in Thailand
2010 earthquake in Haiti
Please include answers to the following questions:
What is a natural disaster?
How did it effect the landscape?
How did it effect the community?
Please hand in your work by Friday 20th April to your class teacher. Your finished work can be handwritten or typed and you can include pictures if you wish to.
Have a lovely Easter!
Oak class will have Maths homework every week online on Mathletics. The children are used to logging on and finding their homework. Please keep this login safe (it has been given to the children on Friday 15th Sept. laminated for home).
This should be recorded in the children's reading record books (all of which have been given to the children).
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 Thursday please.
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 to assess reading level and ensure children are questioned to think about predicting, identifying words they don't recognise, questioning and summarising (PIQS).
Reading volunteers are always welcome in our classroom!
P.E. is taught on Wednesday and Thursday afternoon so kits should be in school and clearly labelled.
