Welcome to Oak's class page...

 

"Mighty oaks from little acorns grow..."

meaning...

Great things may come from small beginnings...

Welcome to Oak class! There are 24 of us and we have a very busy term ahead of us with lots of interesting and fun things planned. Mrs Osborne teaches us for half the time whilst the other half is taught by Ms. Jones and our dedicated PPA team of Miss Nurse & Mrs Barnett. We also have the opportunity of working closely with Mr Harper and 5/6H  and our amazing TAs-Miss Bannister & Mrs Allison- support us with our learning and interventions.

Topic 

Our topic this term is Horror. We will be exploring the genre of suspense and writing our very own spooky story based on the book Night of the Gargoyles by Eve Bunting. To bring this to life, we will be visiting Lincoln Cathedral ( 09/10/18). In Science we are looking at the “gory “ parts of our body eg –the digestive system and intestine. The use of Virtual Reality will enhance the children’s first- hand experiences. Through the DARE project the children will investigate drug awareness and the effects these have on the body. Where possible, all other curriculum areas will be linked to the topic.

 

We continue to develop our ICT skills reminding ourselves constantly abut the importance of Internet Safety.

 

 

The children will be expected to continue to read at home and complete their reading task homework; participate in Mathletics and to continue to learn their times tables & spellings thoroughly. Homework may appear different this year as the school is currently reviewing this. Any other homework tasks will be sent out on a Friday with a set deadline whether this be a weekly, fortnight or half termly task. (The usual deadline for weekly tasks is the following Wednesday.)

 

2018 continues to see us having a "Push on Reading". Oak class will continue to develop their reading area so if you have any spare books - which are appropriate for Year 6 -  we would be more than happy to take them off your hands!
