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 Miss Durham and Mrs Ransley and Mrs Moulin like the other classes they also get up to all kinds of fun learning!
Oak Class have had an extremely busy but wonderful term.
In English, we have learnt to write a set of instructions, focusing on all different types of recipes. We learnt to make sure we are super specific when telling our readers what to do, especially so that Miss Durham doesn’t paint on the table again!
In the second half of the term, we found out that Britain was going to war and we needed to try and persuade Theresa May why we should not go to war! We worked on our persuasive language skills and our choice of vocabulary to persuade her!
In Maths, we have been learning to add and subtract with missing numbers and complex multi-step word problems! All of Oak Class have shown great endurance within Maths this term!
In History, the children have had a lot of fun learning about what life was like during World War One. We have made propaganda posters, learnt how different school life was, how our homes would have looked and made some beautiful poppies for our display.
We have become scientists this term! We have been focusing on properties and changes of materials by taking part in lots of experiments and learning how to work scientifically! We can predict what might happen, record our results, describe our method and record our data in a graph. What brilliant Albert Einstein’s in the making!
I hope the children have had fun this term and enjoy the much needed Christmas break!
