Welcome to our Oak Class page. This is where we share our news and topics for this school year.
During the Autumn Term our school curriculum focus is Art. In Oak Class we are heavily concentrating on portraits. We will be looking into different artists and how their techniques and styles differ. Then we will be trying out these styles ourselves! When we come to looking into the history of different artists it will provide us with links to Geography as we will be able to look into where the artists are from. Therefore this will develop their knowledge about the world, the United Kingdom and their locality.
In maths we will be looking closely at number bonds to 5, 10 and 20. As well as addition and subtraction number sentences, discussing where the largest number is placed. At the end of the term we will be learning about measurement. Our literacy lessons will consist of looking at the book Tuesday by David Wiesner. We will be carrying out a variety of acting and writing activities linked to the book.
The children will also be given one piece of maths or literacy homework over the next couple of weeks that will normally be set to consolidate their learning that has occurred during the week. This homework will be given out on a Friday and expected back by the following Thursday, at the latest.
During the Spring Term our school curriculum focus is History. In Oak Class we are looking at the Great Fire of London. The children will be participating in activities that involve research, hot seating, interviewing and making comparisons between life during 1666 and the present day, looking at both the similarities and differences.
In Literacy our topic is based on looking at books written by Dr. Seuss, focusing on Horton Hears a Who and the Cat in the Hat. We will be looking at sentence structure and learning new vocabulary. There will be a particular emphasis on the use of adjectives and beginning to use speech in our writing.
The children will be given one piece of Maths, Phonics, Science or Literacy homework that will normally be set to consolidate their learning that has occurred during the week.
