Oak Class 2019 - 2020

Mrs Thwaites

Welcome to Oak’s class page!

Our class is made up of 17 rather intelligent Year 5 and 6 children and our teacher: Mrs Thwaites.

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 Mrs Thwaites 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 school website and our Class Dojo page for updates on how these monitors are getting on throughout the year.

This term, our Topic for History and Geography is 'Rebuilding Britain after World War 2 and Britain since 1945'. Take a look at the Topic Booklet below to see what we will be learning about!

We will be having PE lessons on Monday so please make sure that your child's PE kit is in school on these days!

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. All children will have a school reading book and we do ask them to read this regularly (aim for three - four times per week). 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 this year will be given out on a Friday and will be due in on the following Wednesday. Whilst homework must be the children's own work, I really enocurage parent support at home too. 

Homework will have different focuses each week; reading, SPaG, maths, writing and will often link with what they have been learning in school. The children will also regularly be set homework online in the form of Mathletics and Spellzone. They will usually be set specific tasks before they are then able to play lots of fun and exciting games which the online platforms offer.
