Life in Oak Class

Our usual routine involves:

- Grammar Hammer and Big Maths on a Monday morning.

- 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-chronologocal reports, biographies and play-scripts

  • 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 :-

  • Number - place value
  • Number - addition and subtraction
  • Number - multiplication and division
  • Statistics
  • Measurement = perimeter, area and volume

 

Our Topic

 

We began the year by exploring North and South America and stepping back to explore the history of Central America when the Mayas dominated the landscape. In Spring we studied  The Tudors.  Summer Term sees us unpick What Makes Britain Great ?

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

Our year in Oak class will be a busy and fun filled year of learning.
