Oak Class

   

___________________________________________________________________________________________

 

Welcome back everybody and a huge welcome to our new children who have started this term.  Welcome as well to our class page where you can find out about our class, what we are learning, fun activities to try at home, winners of our weekly and termly awards and much more.   

 

Our class teacher is Mrs Willis and we are very lucky to have four lovely Teaching Assistants: Mrs Birkett, Mrs Leat, Mrs Holdway and Mr Merriman.   Miss Usher is also joining us as well as a Trainee Teacher; a very exciting year for her.     We are all really looking forward to a great first term this year and can't wait to get started.  smiley

 

 

Our first theme of this year is 'Greece is the Word' where we will be looking at several different aspects of Greek life, both ancient and modern.    This theme will look at locating Greece and discussing its position in the world, where the Ancient Greeks fit in a historic timeline, what a City State is, understand ancient battles, specifically, the Battle of Marathon, learning about the Greek Alphabet, pottery and a chance for them to make their own vase and so much more.

 

In addition to this, we will also be looking at The Creation and The Fall in RE, Elecricity and Light in Science and gymnastics and football in PE.  Lots of fun to be had this term.  no

HOME LEARNING  smiley
For Years 5 and 6 , Home Learning will be put on class pages on a Friday and spellings will need to be learned by the following Friday.   Home Learning will include weekly spellings, reading and a termly project challenge.    

 

Remember reading remains very important for everyone; please read 5 times a week (as agreed in the Home School Agreement) and ask your parents to initial your Contact Book to show you have read. We always love to see how much you have read. J

 

Word Wonder Wall

In addition to this, (in class) we have a weekly spelling challenge in Upper School, where the children are challenged to learn an additional five words taken from the Year 5/6 Spelling List which will be on our Word Wonder Wall. These are all tricky words and, so far, the children are doing a great job in challenging themselves. If they get 5 out of 5, on 3 separate occasions, the children will get a dip in my goody bag!

 Homework Challenge - Autumn Term 2

Make an information poster or PowerPoint that tells me about an aspect of modern day Greek life.  What would it be like to visit?  What would you do there?  What would you need to pack?   Would you want to live there?  Why?    :-)   Up to 5 House Points are available when you bring in your work. 

 

Open up your spelling sheet below.

Weekly challenge homework

 

We have still been working on multiplication this week and are moving on to division now, so why not keep practising those times tables, but this week makes sure you play more division games.   Keep going and try to learn a new times table each time.
