Welcome to Oak Class
With 32 children, Mrs Ireton, Miss Trayte, Mrs Glasby and Oreo (the hamster!) all working hard in class, Oak is a wonderful place to be! Together we stay safe and love to learn.
We were so sad to find out that we would not all be back in class together this January. We hope you've had a safe and restful Christmas and are able to join us on Teams each day for our daily Registration, to share assignments and discuss work.
This half term we are learning about the Human Body. We will be finding out some amazing facts about how muscles and organs work, and even learning about our teeth! We will also be thinking about how factual writing is different to fiction, and deepening our understanding of mastery in Maths again. In RE we will be studying Judaism, and reflecting on our school values in PSHE. Although it will of course be slightly different learning remotely, we know you will all work very hard and look forward to awarding House Points and voting on a Growth Mindset Star as usual!
Why not have a go at some of these activities and let me know how you get on :)
The children are expected to read at home at least 5 times a week and parents should record in their Reading Records. Children can also do a book review on Reading Den (ourreadingden.com) and see what they've read on their own personal bookshelf!
In Spring term Oak class will have PE on Monday and a Tuesday afternoon. Children are to come in to school wearing their school uniform and will wear it all day.
- Spellings will be set every Thursday for a test the following Thursday. Your child was given a group name for the group of spellings they will be learning, which will resume in January.
- Maths homework this week is on https://www.timestables.co.uk/ and Mathletics.
- All children in Phase 1 will also continue to learn and be tested on their times tables each Thursday. You can find songs and games on websites like these to help at home: BBC Super Movers Times Table Songs - https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/supermovers/scottish-times-table-collection/zdnhjhv Times Table Games and Worksheets- https://www.timestables.co.uk/ Mixed Times Tables (similar format to end of Year 4 Test) - https://play.edshed.com/mtc
- Science - As we begin learning about the human body in January children should research something that interests them (eg healthy eating, teeth, etc) and bring a poster with these facts in to school on Tuesday 5th January. We will be sharing what we've found out and putting them up in class.
Thank you from everyone in the Oak team,
Mrs Ireton Miss Trayte Mrs Glasby
