Oak Class 2017 - 2018

Miss Booth

Welcome to Oak’s class page.

Our class is made up of 22 rather intelligent and spectacular children (even if we do say so our selves!).  Our teacher is Miss Booth and our teaching assistant is Mrs Stoker. We are also extremely lucky as Mrs Massen supports us in our learning lots too. 

Year 5 and 6 can be both be very tricky years, we all have to work hard and pay attention; however we’re very good at doing both of these things and Miss Booth likes to make sure we have as much fun as we can while we're learning. Being in Oak Class also means we have lots of other responsibiilities to undertake, such as Recycling Officers, Assembly Monitors, Junior Energy Monitors, Rose Queen and Attendants. We're all run off our feet! Keep a look out on the website for updates on how these monitors are getting on throughout the year.

 

Life in Oak Class

A typical day in Oak class looks a bit like this:

Children come straight into class and test each other on their individual spellings before hitting the ground running with our spelling session. We then have English, followed by Maths.

We have recently started Times Table Rockstars, which we do at the start or end of our maths lesson.

We also have assembly every day, some are at the start of the day and some are straight after break-

Monday – Rev Atkinson

Tuesday – Mrs Massen

Wednesday – Celebration Assembly

Thursday – Mrs Winterton

Friday – singing or class assemblies.

PE day is a Monday. Please ensure that you have your P.E. kit in school.

Drama takes place with Ms Warrilow every Friday morning. We have three focused sessions on reading and handwriting throughout the week. We also explore other areas of the curriculum such as art and design technology, Spanish (with Senora Clowes), science, history, geography and RE each week.

 

The Curriculum

This term our topic is the Victorians. Our class book is 'Streetchild' by Berlie Doherty, which links beautifully with so many areas of our topic. We will be learning all about the workhouse; the Industrial Revolution; the royal family, William Morris and so many other areas too. Please take a look at our topic booklet below to see in more detail our areas of study.

 

How can I help and support my child at school?

There are so many ways in which you can help support your child's learning at home.

* Reading - please listen to your child read as often as you can and talk about what they have read. Children will most likely have a school reading book and we do ask them to read this regularly. However, there is also nothing to stop you and your child finding other interesting texts to read together e.g. articles in the local paper, non-fiction books about a hobby or another story they enjoy from home.

* Maths - tables tables tables! Chant them, test each other in the car, do them backwards, find the corresponding division facts, make up games with thousands of points for the winner! Please help your child to know their times tables inside out - this will help them so much in all other areas of maths.

 

Homework

Homework is given out on a Friday and is due in the following Wednesday. Spellings are posted on the pupil's dashboard on the school website and children must copy these into their homework book and learn them carefully, ready to be tested on Wednesday.

Homework will have different focuses each week; reading, SPaG, maths, writing and will often link with what they have been learning in school. Should the children have any questions or concerns about homework then they are welcome to attend homework club each Monday lunchtime at 12:30pm or speak with myself before the day it is due in.

Children also have log in details for Times Table Rockstars, which can be played online or by downloading the app to a smart phone or tablet.
