Oaks Class

Welcome back to our new term and Happy New Year!

Our new topic this half term is The Anglo Saxons. We will be researching The Anglo Saxons, finding out about the 7 Kingdoms and names of the cities that were named by the Anglo Saxons. We will also be finding out about the places Anglo Saxons came from and where they settled, what their villages looked like and the different jobs they did.

The children have returned to school full of energy and enthusiasm to their learning! They have been working really hard this school year and I know they will continue to do so.

Spellings will be tested every Monday, please continue to support your children in learning these.

Homework will now be given out on a Friday afternoon and returned to school every Wednesday.

Oaks class has PE every Monday and Wednesday afternoon, please ensure your child comes to school with their PE kits for their lesson.

Thank you
Miss Angell

Odd Socks Day

A visit to the South Holland Centre

As part of the START project, our year 3 and 4 pupils visited the South Holland Centre to watch Tales of Birbal. The pupils were very excited and many said it was their first trip to the theatre. The children particularly enjoyed the chance to ask the actors questions at the end of the performance.

Egyptian Pots

The Oaks have been super busy creating their own Egyptian pots. We looked at how the Egyptians mummified other Egyptians and found out that they keep organs in special pots so we created our own using clay. They look fabulous!

Start Workshop

The Year 3 and 4 children have had fun taking part in the START workshop. They took part in lots of acting activities and made their own crows from recycled materials. We are excited to see the crows in The Tales of Birbal show!

Earth and Space

The Year 5 and 6 children have been looking at Earth and Space in Science. We have been finding out about how the Earth orbits the Sun whilst spinning on its axis and how the Moon orbits the Earth. The children created models on this. They look great!
