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 22 of us and we have an even split of girls and boys. We have a very busy term ahead of us and are really lucky to have lots of interesting, 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 Banister, Miss Nurse and Madame Taylor. We also have the opportunity of working closely with Mr Harper and 6H as well as our other amazing TA team who support us with interventions.

Topic 

At the start of the Autumn term we will be looking at the topic of "Horror" but it is nothing to feel scared about. Or work is based around the story of the "Night of the Gargoyles" by Eve Bunting. This story will help us delve into the histories of famous "monsters" such as The Loch Ness Monster, The Black Hound of Newgate Prison and The Lambton Worm in the UK;  moving further afield we'll locate the homes of those world wide creatures  such as the Kraken, Frost Giants and vampires. Map work skills such as locating the continents & specific countries and using longitude and latitude will help us locate where these mythical beings were supposed to live.

Our science work is linked to animals, including humans, so we'll be becoming biologists looking at the Respiratory and Circulatory systems and carrying out experiments to check out what happens to our pulse rates before, during and after exercise as well as working out our lung capacity.

 

We've our Residential visit to Caythorpe to look forward to in November as well as having the opportunity to work with Nottinghamshire Road Safety team to help us with our cycle safety.

Towards the end of the Autumn term we'll be moving onto investigating our local area by looking at how the Victorians influenced  Nottingham. We need to thank them for our local canal system and rail system as well as much more.

 

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

 

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! 

We have our FA coach, Miss Dennis, teaching us Football skills on a Tuesday and Year 6 PE/Games ( depending on the weather) on a Friday. Please make sure you have the appropriate  kit in school on those days.

 

Mathletics

As already mentioned, 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.
