Teaching Assistant: Miss Chris Mitchell and Miss Rebecca Coll (INA)
Welcome to Oak Class!
This term our topic is Science- based and is called Amazing Me! Please can the children bring in their baby photos as we will be having a fun quiz to guess who is who, and comparing ourselves to then and now. We know how precious these photos are, so please put the children’s names on the back, so that we can return the correct baby!!
We will be carrying out a series of fun investigations into sound and senses and considering such questions as:
If someone has long feet, do they also need larger gloves?
We will be linking our topic to maths, measuring and comparing differences in heights and hand sizes and looking for patterns in the measurements collected.
Our book this term is The Tiger who came to Tea by Judith Kerr. We will be looking at a selection of books by the same author and will be learning how to act out and retell the stories. Finally, we will begin writing our own stories, learning how to be real editors and using adventurous vocabulary.
Friday is homework day and the children will be given spellings and maths homework. There will be a spelling test each Tuesday.
Please read at home with your child every day. We cannot stress enough, the importance of daily reading at home.
We will be using the following websites in our learning and encourage you to look at them at home with your child (you may even want to join in with the singing and dancing!)
