Hello and Welcome back,

I hope you have had a wonderful and magical Christmas break with lots of family time. The Christmas season in Oak class is always extremely busy and the 2018 half term didn’t disappoint. I just want to say what a wonderful nativity Oak and Acorns performed. The effort they put into knowing their lines, singing their songs and remembering all the actions was excellent and I could not have asked any more from them.

This half term is going to be just as jam-packed with learning. Our new topic for this term is Africa. In topic we will be learning where Africa is and focusing on Kenya, we will be finding out about their National parks, and what the differences are between them and the zoos that we have here. We will be finding out about the Masaai and children that live in Africa. In Science we will be finding out about animals including humans, and what they eat, where they live and what they do. In Art we will carry on our African theme, and with Mrs Nightingale’s help will be creating beautiful African sunsets, patterns and masks. In Maths we will be moving on to learning about Multiplication and Division, and then Fractions. In Literacy we are concentrating on learning and adapting traditional tales.

Our homework will continue to be the learning of different spelling patterns, but in fun ways. The children are really enjoying filling in their home reading tree silhouettes, and I hope that their reading at home can continue to be completed as regularly as possible again, because I truly believe this has a massive impact, not only on their reading ability but on their writing and understanding as well.

In PE Mr Hopkinson will continue to teach them on a Wednesday afternoon, and their focus will be Football. Please make sure that hair is always tied back, the children have water bottles and they have appropriate clothing for the activity which will be taking place outside.

Mrs Gladwin will continue to teach in Oak class every Friday afternoon. Her sessions will include Language and RE.
