Oak Class

Welcome back to school and to Oak Class!

 

We are so happy to have you all back! Although things look a little bit different to last year, we will soon get used to the changes and back into a routine ready for an exciting year ahead!

 

This year our teacher is Miss Jones and our Teaching Assistant is Miss Riley.

 

In English this term, over the next two weeks, our whole school are going to explore the wonderful book ‘Here We Are’ by Oliver Jeffers. It was inspired by Oliver's desire to make sense of the world for his son, but it is also a gift to all children at this time, helping them make sense of their world and their role in it.

The shared unit will:

  • provide a framework for children to re-engage with each other and the wider community;
  • suggest opportunities to engage positively with the outdoor environment;
  • stimulate thinking and talk about world events and the impact of these
  • provide a safe forum to share thoughts, concerns, ideas and personal responses;
  • use art and writing to help children respond personally to experiences they have had.

 

Our second English unit will be on the text ‘The Butterfly Lion’ by Michael Morpurgo. We will be focusing on writing diary entries, letters, descriptions and writing a non-fiction report.

 

Our Area of Study this term is the Anglo-Saxons, where we will explore who they were and where they came from, as well as the reasons behind their arrival in Britain. 

 

In Science this term, we are learning about materials and their properties and developing our skills of investigation.

 

Reading is a huge focus here at Buckingham and it is important that children are encouraged to read daily.
