Term 1 week 5

Hello :) 

Oak Class have been amazing this week and produced some amazing learning!


In English we have begun to look at instruction writing. We are still focusing on 'The Pirate Cruncher' and using this to help us to create some detailed instructions! We had a go at writing a set on how to brush our teeth using our previous knowledge to help us. We have then used this to help us focus on imperative verbs and how these can be used to write effective instructions. We have also followed instructions to understand the importance of clear steps by making pirate hats! 


In maths, Oak Class we have been looking at ordering numbers up to 100 using our previous knowledge of tens and ones to help us. We have also looked at the symbols for more than (>), less than (<) and equal to (=) and used these to compare numbers. Oak Class have continued to look at their times tables and have proudly won the TT Rockstars trophy for the second week in a row! 


Here is a snippet of what we have been up to this week:

In geography Oak Class have looked at their locality and the different human and physical geography using their retrieval from previous learning. They have then compared similarities and differences between their immediate locality and St Lucia, a Non-European island. In Science we have looked at conducting simple experiments. We made predictions this week and are going to conduct our experiment next week so watch this space for updates on our results! 


Home learning tasks are set every Friday and are due back the following week. This is monitored and supports your child with their progress. If you are having any difficulties, please come and speak to Miss Beamish at the end of the school day. 

Reading records should be in school DAILY. They are collected every Friday so we can see what reading is happening at home. We appreciate your support with reading as it is such a fundamental skill.
