Oak Class have the X Factor !
It's a shame Simon Cowell and his fellow judges weren't in town today, as Oak class were rocking! This half term we have been enjoying music lessons every Wednesday with Mrs Hardwick. Special mention to Dani for his fabulous solo efforts, perhaps a future on a West End stages awaits?
Oak Class are 'Shaping' up well!
Following on from our work on 'nonsense poetry' during last week's National Poetry day, Oak class have been exploring the world of SHAPE POETRY this week. Having spent the beginning of the week exploring different poems and their features, we decided to focus on the skill of alliteration. We had lots of fun giving each other alliteration names including 'Perfect Peggy', 'Magical Mhoni', 'Zany Zoe' and 'Talented Turner' :-) We then decided to try to include elements of alliteration within shape poems about returning to school. Some future poets appear to have been unearthed including Danny, Zoe and Sofia, whose work is included below (just click on the thumbnail below to view them). Well done guys!
National Poetry Day - 1st October 2020
Oak class enjoyed a week packed full of nonsense and laughter as we explored the world of nonsense poetry. By focussing on Spike Milligan's classic 'The Ning Nang Nong', the children were able to look at the features of nonsense poetry including rhymes and alliteration, before composing their own verse for the poem. What a lot of nonsense!
WELCOME TO OAK CLASS
We are looking forward to an exciting year together, after what has been a very strange few months apart. In recognition of this our topic this term is 'Better Together' as we settle back into our school family, developing our understanding of community and our own place within it. While we spend time focussing on the important basic skills required in English (including punctuation, grammar and letter formation) we will be developing our understanding of Place Value and using this to solve simple addition and subtraction problems. In history we will be learning about Dr Martin Luther King Jnr and the important role he played in history. Get ready Oak Class, it's going to be very busy but even more fun - Mr T :-)
After the success of our SeeSaw Home Learning during Lockdown, we have decided that Year 2's weekly homework will be sent to you via SeeSaw. Each week you will receive either a challenge related to our current topic, or a Maths/English task related to the week's learning. It has been lots of fun looking at all the amazing pieces of homework we have received so far, please keep this up Oak Class!
Hot Chocolate Friday
Well done to our first 'Hot Choc Friday' winners Sam, Sahaas, Sophia, Caitlin, Emma and Harry, who were chosen to enjoy an afternoon of delicious cakes and biscuits and creamy hot chocolate, with our head Mrs Melia. The children were chosen as a result of some fantastic work and wonderful behaviour across the week. Keep up the good work guys!
MATHS - Placing Numbers on an empty Number Line
This week we have been learning how to order numbers, and place them on number lines. Today we took that learning outside to make it more practical with the children forming their own human number line. It certainly seemed to work!
