Term 1 week 3

Hello :) 

What an amazing week Oak Class have had and it has been lovely to see them continue to settle into year 2. 


In literacy this week we have really been focusing on sentence structure. We have been looking at using a capital letter and full stop to demarcate our sentences and how to ensure that our sentences make sense. We have continued to practice our handwriting and letter formation daily and I have been so impressed with some of the handwriting being produced! Oak Class have written some descriptive sentences this week of Captain Purplebeard who is a main character our in focus text 'The Pirate Cruncher'. 


In maths this week we have continued to look at number knowledge. We have focused on partitioning numbers into tens and ones and paid particular attention to partitioning in different ways. I have been so impressed by the level of resilience in some members of the class with their learning this week and all their hard work has really paid off! We have continued to look at our times tables with a focus on our 2's and Oak Class have now all accessed their TT Rockstars successfully! 


This week we have been busy looking at seasonal changes in our science lessons. We have made observations and described weather associated with seasons and conducted our own experiment linked to weather changes to see what materials are waterproof. 

In geography, Oak Class have built on their learning from last week where they learned about the continents of the world and have now explored the different oceans. They can name and locate the 5 oceans of the world and have a fun song to help them remember. 

In computing we have continued to look at the technology around us and how this can help us with our learning. We have looked at how we can use a keyboard on an iPad and how other pieces of technology such as laptops and tablets have them too. 


  • Reading records should be in school DAILY. They are collected every Friday by adults in Oak Class to see what reading you have been up to at home. 
  • P.E. is on a Monday for Oak Class. Please ensure that earrings are removed on these days and any long hair is tied back. Correct uniform must be worn for these sessions. 
  • Home learning is set every Friday and there is an expectation that every child will complete their home learning. If you are unsure of the home learning policy, please see the note home to parents about home learning below and it has also been attached to a comment on our class Teams page.

If you have any queries or are experiencing any difficulties accessing anything, then please do come and speak to Miss Beamish at the end of the school day. 

Thank you and have a lovely weekend
