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 Autumn 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 read every day. Sometimes we read independently and other times we work in a guided reading group.  We also work on our reading comprehension skills in small groups as well as working on grammar and spelling skills as a whole class. We will be reading the historical novel 'Carrie's War' by Nina Bawden. This book (which is set in World War II) is about Carrie and her little brother Nick who have been evacuated from London to the Welsh hills. 


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 start by focusing on Place Value including Decimals. 


Science - Our topic for this term will be 'Properties & Changes Of Materials (Reversible & Irreversible Changes).


Art- Our Art will be based on World War II. We will create Propaganda Posters and look at Henry Moore's drawings of people sheltering in the London Underground during 'The Blitz' (air raids).


DT - Our DT will be based on World War II Anderson Shelters. 


Computing - We will begin this year studying the unit 'We Are Web Developers'.  We will be creating our own powerpoint presentation about World War II using Microsoft Powerpoint and Google. 


PE - Our focus is Adventurous Outdoor Activities (Monday) where we will be learning new skills through various outdoor games and Dance skills (Friday).


Music - In music this term we will be learning about music from different eras. 


RE - We are learning all about Christianity.


PSHE - This term our SEAL topic is 'Going For Goals'. 


History - 'World War II' is our main topic this term. 


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 Dance on Friday pm. These will be kept in our lockers and left in school. (We will change into them for Dance 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.
