Welcome to the Oak Class Webpage

Year 5 - 2017 to 2018

 

This year, Mrs Reddish will lead pupils' learning as Oak Class Teacher. 

Our Teaching Assistant, Mrs Williams, will support the class learning.  

P.E.

This term, P.E. will consist of indoor dance on a Monday and outdoor tennis on Friday.  

As P.E. is a compulsory part of the curriculum, all children must take part and, for Health and Safety reasons, a P.E kit must be worn. It would be helpful if your child has his/her P.E. kit in school every day in case we decide to be spontaneous!

Our Indoor PE and Games Skills kit consists of:

black shorts and royal blue and black PE shirt with school logo. Children do indoor PE in bare feet. Plimsolls can be worn but not for gymnastics.

Outdoor PE and Games Skills kit consists of:

the same as our indoor kit, but trainers may be worn. It is advisable to have a dark coloured tracksuit and/or sweatshirt to wear outdoors when it is cold. Sun hats are needed in the summer months.

Please remember that all jewellery must be removed; if earrings cannot be removed, they must be covered with a plaster which should be supplied from home. Long hair will need to be tied back.

 

Project Based Learning

Do we welcome visitors? Throughout Britain's history, people have travelled thousands of miles to foreign lands whilst others left their homelands to settle in Britain. Both the Anglo Saxons and the Vikings once landed on our shores but were they welcomed?

Our class books this term, 'How To Train Your Dragon' by Cressida Cowell and 'Beowolf' by Michael Morpurgo both have strong Viking connections that will support our project based learning. Please encourage your child to take up our Reading Challenge and support them by reading with them at home. Reading is one of life’s greatest pleasures and gives children vital literacy and language skills.

Homework

A project will be set and time will be allocated in school to support the work children will complete at home. In addition to this, spellings, literacy or maths based tasks will also be set. If you or your child's older sibling would like to help your child with his/her homework, please do but remember it is your child's work and you are only there to assist!

School Trips

We are planning a trip in November to York to experience Viking life. Keep visiting our webpage for more details!

 

 

Finally, a message from Mrs Reddish

Thank you for taking the time to find out about Oak Class; I am really looking forward to getting to know our children and families this year.  If you have any issues you would like to discuss with me, please either speak to a member of staff in the School Office to make an appointment or alternatively please message me using class dojo.

Best wishes,

Mrs Reddish
