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 Mr Allen and our dedicated PPA team of Miss Nurse,  Miss Vonderach, Mrs Fox and Mrs Allison. We also have the opportunity of working closely with Mr Harper and 5/6H  and our amazing TA-Miss Bannister- supports us with our learning and interventions.

Topic 

During the Spring term we will be looking at the topic of "The Terrible Tudors"  where our work is based around our Local Area and a local study looking at how Nottinghamshire has changed from Tudor times. Our work will be brought to life by a visit to Wollaton Hall where we will experience Tudor dancing whilst wearing traditional Tudor outfits along with looking at Tudor artefacts , listening to traditional Tudor tales and  maybe even having a go at creating a large sculpting using marzipan of all things! Our literacy topic is linked to the Tudors due to it being based about the works of William Shakespeare. After finding out a little about his life we will be looking in depth at his Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet and the feud between the Montagues and Capulets. Literacy work will include studying the characters, looking at their individual traits, discussing how a playscript is written and put together and converting a playscript into a detailed narrative using precise and effective language . The intention is to create a short story based on the plot line of the tragedy

 

Our Science and DT work will be to investigate and look at how pulleys and levers help us in our everyday lives. We will be looking at the use of the "fulcrum2"and how, by changing the position of this, we may be able to lift a heavy load with relative ease.

 

We continue to develop our ICT skills reminding ourselves constantly abut the importance of Internet Safety. Pint Size theatre company will be joining us on the 12th February to tell us about"Abigale's story" which is a theatre workshop around internet safety.

 

 

Weekly homework continues to be linked to the grammar and maths areas we will be looking at each week and it will support us further in our learning.

 

2018 sees us having a "Push on Reading". Oak class will be developing a reader 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!

 

There is of course our pre SAT meeting for parents  - 21st March - where we will inform you of the arrangements for SAT week . Please note SAT week is Monday 14th May- Thursday 17th where it is essential every child is in school and on time.

Homework & PE

Every week homework will be set on a Friday. This will be a piece of maths linked to the topic or could be one on "mathletics". In addition to this, there will be some form of grammar to practise too! Don't forget your weekly list! 

Mr Allen, will teach us PE on a Monday and we will have PE/Games with 5/6 H( depending on the weather) on a Friday. Please make sure you have the appropriate  kit in school on those days.

 

Mathletics

All children in Oak have access to the 'Mathletics' website. This is a safe and secure website which helps every child to raise their achievement in mathematics. It has lots of fun activities which will motivate and encourage everyone to enjoy maths.
