Summer Term 2023 - Awesome Planet Earth - Brazil and the United Kingdom (Geography Focus)
Welcome to Summer Term 2023 everyone! This term promises to be another incredibly busy one with lots going on including SATS, the end of year production and our annual class residential trip.
Our topic, Awesome Planet Earth, is a chance to learn about two contrasting countries - the United Kingdom and Brazil with a focus on developing key geographical skills. Besides learning about these two countries, we will also learn about Indonesia, wild elephants and anything else that crops up to do with Awesome Planet Earth in our two class books - Running Wild by Michael Morpurgo and
Spring Term 2023 - Anglo-Saxons versus the Vikings
Happy New Year everyone and welcome to 2023! I can't believe that another new school year is about to begin and that 2022 is done. What an exciting topic World War 2 was! Visiting RAF Museum Cosford during the penultimate week was a great end to a fascinating topic in which everyone learned lots of new knowledge and information. Photos will be appearing soon in the class gallery below.
Our new topic, Anglo-Saxons versus the Vikings, will be equally interesting I'm sure. The class pages will be updated over the next week once we have planned the topic in more detail with the children. Come back soon and there will be more information here...
Autumn Term 2022 - World War II - The Home Front
Welcome back to school everyone! We hope you all had a relaxing break and are looking forward to a new school year... It's been wonderful to welcome all the new children into Oak Class and we're excited about a new term.
Our topic for the Autumn Term is World War II and within that in mind, we will focus on what life was like for the men and women and boys and girls who stayed at home in Britain during the war - it promises to be an exciting topic.
We hope to be able to visit RAF Museum Cosford on a history and science visit in the next few weeks where children will be able to experience first hand some of the vehicles and aircraft that played such a vital role between 1939 and 1945. As part of our science curriculum, the children will take part in a workshop focusing on all aspects of STEM. They will will experiment with construction design and engineering principles to create a cargo delivery system to safely land a device onto the surface of Mars. Students will benefit from developing soft skills and have the opportunity to work in teams.
In addition, I have added information on the pages below regarding homework and the books that we will be reading over the next few months; more bits and pieces will appear over the next few weeks.
Please remember to get in touch with me at the end of the day if you need to or failing that, you can email me on the address above.
