Welcome to Oak Class pages where we hope you will find out all about our Year 5 children and what they have been learning.
Oak Class has 30 children and the class is taught by Mrs Hayes, Mrs Clayton and Ms Watts - like the other classes they also get up to all kinds of fun learning!Newsletter T3+4 2022
Oak Class have had an interesting and jam-packed year so far! They have all been working extremely hard and have settled back in to the school routine brilliantly. I am particularly proud of how well they have adapted to me teaching from a screen!
We have learnt lots already and had some fascinating topics covered. In Term 1, we read the epic story of Beowulf and the children wrote their own legends, which were really very good. We spent lots of time covering the Vikings and Anglo Saxons and crafted our own armour.
This term, we have immersed ourselves in World War One, which the children have thoroughly enjoyed. We started by baking some traditional war time biscuits, which the children found very tasty – much to my surprise! We are ending the topic by designing and building our own trench models.
We have discussed in detail about what war must have been like for both the soldiers and animals; the children have been hooked on finding out as much as possible and our text ‘War Horse’ has opened their eyes to lots of the sad truths.
The children have worked extremely hard this past term. They have learnt new things and revised past learning, along with written lots! I really noticed a difference in progress this term in particular and this has been reflected in their great assessment scores.
I hope you all have a super Christmas break and I can’t wait to see you all (albeit behind a screen) in January. Stay safe.
Mrs Hayes and Miss Watts
