Oak Class Newsletter


Hello and Welcome to Oak class 2018-19.

I hope you have had a lovely Summer Holiday, with lots of adventures and lots of new memories to keep. The holidays seem to have flown by and I hope you are all well rested and keen to start the New Year in Oak class.

Our creative curriculum for this term is Space. This means that most of our subjects will evolve around this general theme. We will learn all about the different planets, as well as space travel and what it is like to be an astronaut. In Literacy we will be labelling planets and rockets, as well as learning to write sentences with the correct punctuation and turning them from simple sentences into exciting sentences with extra detail and information. In Maths we will be working hard on Place Value and recognising numbers. In Design and Technology and Art we will be learning how to mix colours and use shading and tinting to create space themed pictures.

On a Wednesday afternoon, we have PE with Mr Hopkinson; please can you provide a full PE kit with suitable outdoor shoes, and a warm jumper. If your child has long hair then this needs to be tied back every day and especially for PE. Please bring their PE kit in and then we will leave it at school for a half term. We will send their PE kit home if it gets wet or muddy. In Oak class this year, we are very lucky because Mrs Gladwin our language instructor is going to come in on a Friday afternoon and teach us a wide range of languages from Italian to Chinese.

In Oak class your child is expected to do 10 minutes of homework an evening, this year we are going to use your child’s homework to work on the basics they need to stretch and further their learning in class. So each week your child will be expected to read as often as possible (hopefully every night), practice counting out loud forwards and backwards in a range of different jumps, number bonds to 10, 20 and 100 and time tables. There will also be a list of spellings to learn by completing fun activities like word searches, but do not worry there will not be a test when the spellings have been learnt, your child will just receive house points for spelling them correctly in their writing.

Please try and send their signed diary and reading books in everyday so that we can communicate and hear them read on a regular basis. Water bottles also need to be in school every day.
