Life in Oak Class

The children in Oak class are looking forward to a great year of learning.

We complete Grammar Hammer and Big Maths on a Monday morning.

PE day is Monday and we are having swimming lessons at Winsford Lifestyle Centre with Willow Class. Please ensure that you have your P.E. kit in school also.

We have a focused session on Reading, Writing/SPaG and Maths each day. We also will be exploring other areas of the curriculum such as the Arts, French, Science and the Humanities/ RE each week.

 

Our Curriculum

At Wimboldsley Primary School we aim to provide a broad and balanced curriculum that promotes excellence. We aim to foster a lifelong love of learning, through delivery a twenty first century education. A cross curricular approach to learning encourages the children to be independent, reflective learners and responsible citizens. We work closely with parents to support children’s learning.

 

English:

Our first main class text is Wonder by R.J. Palacio. The children are already enjoying it. Later on this term we will look at ‘The Egyptian Cinderella’ and ‘The Diaries of Howard Carter’.

During this term, along with the above, we will be learning about the following genres:-

  • Fiction - Narratives

  • Non Fiction – Newspaper/journalistic reports

  • Fiction – Stories from other cultures

  • Non Fiction – Speeches and non-chronological reports

  • Poetry 

SPaG will be covered weekly to help support us throughout our work this year. Spelling tests will be every Friday morning; with new spellings sent home on Friday afternoons.

Maths:

This term in maths we will be focussing on re-capping essential skills in order to help us with the Year 6 curriculum and explore more complex mathematics. We will be looking at:-

 

  • Number and Place Value
  • Calculating across 0 through positive and negative numbers/integers
  • Mental calculations
  • The 4 operations: Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication and Division
  • The order of operations (BODMAS/BIDMAS)
  • Fractions
  • Shape: Coordinates, reflection and translation

 

Our Topic

This half term our topic is called ‘Walk like an Egyptian’. We will be finding out lots of interesting information about one of the earliest ancient civilisations and its impact on the modern world.

Please see our Curriculum Overview at the bottom of the page for more information.

Our final year at Wimboldsley will be a busy and fun filled year of learning. Later in the year we will enjoy finding out about:

* The Tudors

*South America

... and lots more!
