Term 2 week 4

Hello :) 

Oak Class have been outstanding this week and have loved combining different subjects to broaden their learning!


In English this week we have been focusing on recounts and being able to write in the past tense. Oak Class combined their English lesson with art and history this week where they created some outstanding oil pastel landscapes of 1666 London during the Great Fire of London! Using these, we have expanded our vocabulary knowledge and used some of our new vocabulary in order to add more detail to our writing. 


In Maths this week we started to look at 2D and 3D shapes. We looked at identifying 2D and 3D shapes, looking around at everyday objects and see what shapes we could find! We also looked at drawing 2D shapes using geometric paper and using this to help find lines of symmetry in a straight line. 

Some fun songs that we have used in class to help us remember 2D and 3D shapes can be found here: 

We have continued to focus on our times tables and have been looking at our 2 times tables this week. 


  • This week we have been really busy! In history we have continued to look at the significant event of the Great Fire of London, showing off with our excellent retrieval of contextual information. We have then delved further, looking at the impact of the fires and how this has an impact on our lives today. 
  • In Science we have continued to look at different materials and looked at the suitability of their properties for the purposes they are built. 
  • In PSHE we have been focused on what makes us healthy both physically and mentally and how sleep is vital for us to be the best we can be! 

Additionally, Oak Class have taken part in a Diwali workshop where they learned the story behind the festival of light and also took part in a Kids Rock workshop learning all about how music can make us feel! 

It has been a busy week :) 


Please ensure that your child has bought in their costume for the performance by Monday 27th of November.
