Life in Oak Class

Our usual routine involves:

- Our PE days will vary. Please ensure that you have your P.E. kit in school.

We have focused sessions 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:

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

  • Fiction - Narratives

  • Non Fiction – Non Chronological Reports

  • Poetry 

SPaG will be covered weekly to help support us throughout our work this year. Spelling will be explored using word study techniques that encourage children to explore morphology and etymology, which enable a deeper understanding.

Maths:

This term in Maths we will be focussing on re-capping essential skills in order to help us with the Year 5/6 curriculum and explore more complex mathematics. We will use the White Rose scheme to explore :-

  • Fractions
  • Decimals
  • Multiplication
  • Division
  • Statistics
  • All aspects with an arithmatic focus

 

Our Topic

This half term in History, Oak we will be looking at Explorers, aiming to know how to place historical events and people from the past societies and periods in a chronological order. We will be looking at Marco Polo, Sir Walter Raleigh, James Cook, Robert Falcon Scott, Amelia Earhart and Yuri Gagarin.

 

In Science, we will be looking at ‘Evolution and Inheritance’ studying how living things have changed over time; fossils can tell us information about the past and much, much more!.

 

How can I help and support my child at school?

Homework

Regular spelling study tasks and maths, writing and reading will be sent home. Learning journals will be used for a variety of longer research projects.

Websites to help: topmarks, mathsbot, bbc education, multiplication.com and spellzone
