Welcome to Oak Class!
The class teacher for Oak Class is Mr Morgan and the teaching assistants are Mrs. Cappelina and Miss Gwynne. Mrs Mickelwaithe will also be in class to offer Maths support from Tuesday to Thursday mornings.
Co-Head Ms Guest will be working closely with Year 6, teaching every Monday morning.
The topic for this term is ‘All Around the World’, which is a geography topic. Children will be exploring our world - looking at countries and capital cities of Europe, exploring biomes around the world, looking at the Tropics and Equator, identifying English counties, looking at aspects of our physical geography (rivers, mountains etc.) and exploring maps and their symbols.
Homework will be set from the SATs Buster books every Friday and needs to be returned by the following week. Different spelling rules and sounds are taught in class from Tuesday and the children are tested on these spellings on the Friday of that week.
Our P.E. days are on Tuesday and Friday. However, please make sure P.E. kits are in schools at all times and when washed over holidays are returned back with your child on their first day. Trainers are required on a daily basis due to the class taking part in daily running sessions.
Should you have any queries or concerns throughout the year, please do not hesitate to contact us
On Tuesday 22nd January, Oak Class travelled to the Genting Arena in Birmingham to take part in the largest school choir ever! They were part of a 6,501 strong choir that has been learning songs and dance moves since September! The children even managed to perform alongside the likes of Beau Dermott (Britain’s Got Talent contestant) and Tony Hadley (Spandau Ballet)! The children loved the experience and were a credit to the school and themselves. Well done Oak Class! Check out the songs and dance moves below, as well as the photos and videos from the evening!
Preparing for Blackout
As part of our Light and Shadow science topic, we have been testing the properties of different materials to see which would make the best blackout blinds.
We had to plan what we could keep the same and what would change so our tests were fair.
Which materials were opaque? If wood is opaque, why wasn't this chosen for the blackout blinds?
Winston Churchill Speeches
Oak Class have been looking at a range of Churchill's inspiration speeches during WW2. We had a go at reading and understanding the meaning of the speeches. The children then recreated the speeches by recording themselves on iMovie before adding pictures and music to create a video. Take a look at the link below to see the finished videos!
