Dear Parents & Carers,
Welcome to Oak! We hope you have had a fantastic summer holiday and you are ready to start an exciting year ahead. I would also like to take this opportunity to outline the set routines and tell you any important information you need to know about Oak Class.
At the beginning of each half term your child will receive a grid with directed homework tasks. Homework should be brought in on a Friday so that adults can ensure that children are not getting behind on their homework (or leaving it to the last minute!). The homework will be due in on the last Tuesday of each half term.
Year 6 will be set weekly homework tasks in order to prepare them for the SATS tests that they Weill be taking later in the year. This will be set on a Friday and due in on a Wednesday. If you have any questions about the homework, please come and see me as soon as possible and before the due date.
Each child will be issued with a reading book and home reading diary. All pupils should be reading every day for at least 10 minutes. We like to encourage them to read a variety of genres. Reading diaries will be checked once a week.
When your child has finished their book they will be asked to complete a quiz before selecting a new book. This is a short (10 question) test to assess your child's comprehension and understanding of the book they have read. Children who score 80% and above will be awarded Dojo's.
The Accelerated Reader link at the bottom of the page will take you to the quiz page.
Oak class have P.E. on Monday and Wednesday. PE kit MUST be in school every day and clearly labelled with your child’s name. Please bring in trainers for outdoor P.E. (indoor P.E. will be barefoot).
Oak class will be visiting the woods every Friday, please ensure your child brings in old clothes (long trousers and long sleeves are essential), a waterproof coat (we will be going even if it is raining) and suitable footwear.
This term's topic is all about space. We are going on a cosmic adventure in order to observe the solar system. We will be finding out about the planets and how they move, learning about space exploration and conducting some scientific investigations all about space.
