Welcome To Class Oak 2022
Welcome to Class Oak
Welcome to Class Oak! Our teacher is Mrs McManus. Mrs Whitney is our Teaching Assistant. We are so excited to be back at school!
Here is a summary of some of the work we will be completing in the Spring Term:
Being in the Upper Juniors means we have certain responsibilities and we are expected to set an amazing example to the younger children. We will always put 100% into every piece of work we do and be excellent role models. We are always very busy in class and are looking forward to a new year at Aughton Town Green.
Take a look at some of the work we will be completing during our first term:
English - We are starting the yar by looking at Explanation Texts before writing our own explanation text about WW2 Anderson Shelters. We will also be looking an fiction and poetry texts throughout the term.
Maths - We will be applying our mathematical knowledge and skills to challenges and investigations. Throughout the year there will be a big emphasis on reasoning and mental arithmetic. We will be looking at written and mental methods, equivalent fractions, percentages and ratio and proportion this term.
Science - Our topic for this term will be 'Living Things & Their Habitats'.
Art- Our Art will be linked to our Geography, looking at coastal art work and various 'seascape' artists.
DT - We will be designing and creating fairground rides linked to our Geographical topic.
Computing - We will begin this year studying the unit 'We Are Advertisiers'. We will be creating our own advert about adopting healthy lifestyles.
PE - Our focus is Gymnastics (Tuesday) where we will be learning new gymnastic skills like travelling, jumping and counter balancing and through various outdoor games and skills on a Friday with Mrs Houghton.
Music - In music this term we will be learning about music from different eras.
RE - We are learning all about Hinduism.
PSHE - This term our topic is 'Democracy'.
History - Local Black History - an interesting new topic looking at our local area and its relation to the transatlantic slave trade. We will be looking at different artefacts.
Important days to remember:
Homework - Given out on Friday. We will be completing Reading, Grammar and Maths (Deepening Understanding), Spelling (Spelling Frame) and Times Tables (TT Rockstars) tasks. Homework is to be completed by Thursday evening. Homework details can be found on the class Dojo page. You will also be able to view your spellings on the Class Dojo. We will have our spelling test on Friday.
We should also read every day for at least 5 minutes.
PE - Monday and Friday. Y5 children who are swimming should bring their swimming kit to school with them. (You will also be wearing your PE kits). All children will need black pumps for Gymnastics (Tuesday). These will be kept in our lockers and left in school. (We will change into them for Gymnastics and then change back into our trainers). Y5 and Y6 will come to school in PE kits with tracksuits and trainers on both PE days. We do not need to bring our uniform- we will stay in our kits all day.
