Welcome to the Spring Term 2017
In Literacy this term we will begin with focusing on sentence structure and grammar in our writing followed by a four week unit based on the book 'Goodnight Mr Tom', linking with our current history topic of WW2! The children will learn about the authors use of language and punctuation and the impact it has on the reader as well as following the life of a child in WW2. We will be looking at ration books, writing instructions for using gas masks and writing persuasive letters to Adolf Hitler as if we were Neville Chamberlain!
In Maths we will be starting off with a unit based on shape and properties and will be working our way through the Year 6 curriculum in preparation for SATS/secondary school!
Our topic this term is WW2. You can find out more about them here:
We will be exploring what life was like during WW2 for women, children and men.
In Science this term we will be looking at 'Light'.
Please can all children have their P.E kit with them in school. P.E lessons for Oak will be on a Monday and Thursday.
The same as last term: On a Monday spelling test results will be recorded in homework diaries and times table results also every day along with details about homework that's been set.
Spellings, SPAG and English will be set on a Wednesday and is due in the following Monday. Each day, children will be given a short maths activity to complete to consolidate their learning and will be marked together as a class at the beginning of the next day. These activties, along with SPAG activities, will be kept in their SATS revision folders for reference as we get closer to SATS in May.
Times tables will be tested on every day in Oak Class. Details of which times tables will be recorded in your child's homework diary.
We look forward to another great term ahead!
