Welcome to Oak Class 2018-2019

Miss Sanders and Mrs Foyle/Mrs Batty/Mrs Seagrave




Term 1

(September - October 2018) 

In term 1, Oak class did some fantastic narrative writing - where they learnt to retell the traditional story of Little Red Riding Hood with actions. They then adapted this to create their own stories. The children also explored the parts of a sentence and learnt the word groups: nouns, verbs and adjectives. Oak class also created some imaginative diary entries, with an Ancient Egyptian theme. 

During Numeracy lessons, Oak have been working on their place value knowledge of numbers up to 3 digits! They have then been using these numbers, in more formal methods - like column addition. The children are going to practise these skills in other contexts to secure their understanding. 

 In Topic, Oak class have loved learning about Ancient Egyptians. We have created our own Egyptian Gods, spelt our names in hieroglyphics and learnt how to mummify oranges. 

 The children have been practising their catching and throwing skills, in PE. They have also started to intercept, during small netball games. Alongside this, Oak have been working on their fitness and challenging themselves to beat their personal bests.

Term 2

In PE, Oak class have been doing gymnastics. Within this, the children have practised a series of balances and rolls of which they have put into a sequence to perform one another.  For our outdoor lessons, we have been learning the skills of hockey including: control of the ball and shooting. We also had our mini class tournament!
