Welcome to Outstanding Oaks
Welcome to the Outstanding Oaks' Class Page.
We have many exciting adventures planned this year and we are so excited to delve into these as a class. On this page, you will find information about homework; what we're learning; weekly updates and pictures to showcase our learning of the term.
This half-term our topic is 'Identity and Belonging'. Please scroll down to find out more about this wonderful learning journey
If you have any questions, please contact me via our class email below, and I will do my best to respond within the working week.
In geography, the children will be using atlases to locate counties of the UK; describe and create models of different settlements; and use geography fieldwork to observe and present features of the local area.
In art, we will be replicating the work of Modigliani’s portrait paintings, to create our own self-portraits. In DT, we will also spend some time, designing and making our own special teddies just like Edward Tulane.
It’s going to be an exciting adventure !
In maths, we will be focusing on place value and addition and subtraction including money.
Throughout the week, we will also be doing TT Rockstars and you can help your children improve by encouraging them to play online at home! If you need your child’s details, please come and speak to me as this is a great mathematical resource.
In science, we will be learning about sound. Over the term we will explore how sounds are made; the journey of sound from our outer ear to our brain; how distance impacts the volume of a sound and exploring pitch. Throughout the term, we will be working scientifically to conduct investigations, ask questions, make predictions and observations.
In English, this half-term we will be learning studying the book ‘The miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane,’ and we will use these to write our own diary entries and stories. After delving into the story, and exploring it through drama we are going to spend some time constructing super sentences, identifying effective vocabulary and developing our understanding of character, plots and settings. In reading we will be retrieving and inferring information. We will be identifying how characters feel by looking for their actions.
