Welcome to Oak Class 

Hello, I am Miss Hibbert and I am the class teacher in Oak Class.

We are very lucky as we also have Mrs Oxendale, Mrs Goodall and Mrs Talbot working with us this year.

 

Our topic for the Summer term is

'Our Wonderful World' 

 

To begin our topic we are going on an exciting journey in which we will need our passports and boarding passes! We will by flying off to a hot country and then a cold country to begin to explore their features. 

Now lets get ready for take off!!! 

 

In English, we will begin to learn about stories from other cultures using books such as Handa's Surprise and Mama Panya's Pancakes. We will use these stories to help us understand and learn about cultures from around the world through the use of story language. 

 

Our Maths learning for the summer term will be: 

Multiplication and Division - To solve one step problems involving multiplication and division by calculating the answer using concrete objects, pictorial representations and arrays. 

Fractions - To recognise, find and name a half, and a quarter of an object, shape and quantity. 

Number and place value - To count, read and write numbers to 100 in numerals. To identify one more and one less than any given number. To identify ten more and ten less than any given number. To begin to recognise the place value of numbers beyond 20. 

Time - To tell the time to the hound half past the hour. To draw the hand on a clock face to show these times. 

 

In Geography, we  will begin by recapping our knowledge of the UK and the Human and Physical features of different places, such as, Villages, Towns and Cities. We will then be able to locate the UK on a world map and be ready to take out our passports to experience boarding a plane to explore hot and cold countries in the world. One of the first places, we will travel to is the Equator and then onto the North and South Poles. We will begin to understand where hot and cold places are located in the world and identify them on a world map.

 

In Science,  We will revisit animals and their structures, and we will be able to group and understand animals which live in hot and cold places. We will also be continuing our ongoing Longitudinal Study of the changes of a seasonal tree, and will look at the changes of our Winter tree as Spring is upon us. We will also continue to observe the weather and how this may or may not change throughout the seasons. 

 

In PHSE,  We will begin to explore the wider world, such as understanding money and inspiring careers, changes to our bodies and feelings. We will also learn how we can become a helpful and responsible citizen, both within our own communities and how we can care and understand issues within the wider world.

 

In Art, we will be exploring a famous artist from one of the countries we begin to explore. We will use drawing, painting and sculpture to develop and share our own ideas, experiences and imagination. 

 

In DT, we will be using the basic principles of a healthy and varied diet to prepare dishes from another country which in turn, will help us to understand where food comes from.
