Oak Autumn 1

Plastic Pollution

This half-term Oak class will be exploring the impact of plastic pollution on our local and global environment.

English

In English we will be studying the text, Song Of The Dolphin Boy, and using this to help us write our own narrative stories. We will then be using the plot of this text alongside a non fiction text, Plastic Sucks, to produce persuasive writing.

Maths

We will be focusing on developing a solid understanding of place value and number. We will be working on our mental and written addition and subtraction skills. We will be looking at 2D shapes, naming them and identifying their properties. We will be using time to solve problems.

Geography

In Geography, we will look at the causes of plastic pollution and what we can do as individuals and groups to try to solve the problems caused by it. We will link our Geography work to our DT projects and will be focusing on how we can recycle and reuse plastics.

DT

We are going to focus on reusing and recycling plastics through our DT projects this half term. We will be re-purposing milk cartons to make a snack box and we will be making a tea light holder out of old pop bottles.

Music

We are developing our understanding of rhythm and tempo by looking at rock music through our latest Charanga music unit. We are looking at a variety of songs and artists in this genre and comparing and contrasting them to look for common themes.

PE 

This half term we are developing our outdoor games skills; focusing on hockey. We will be working on our individual skills and moving towards playing whole games.

 

Oak Team are really looking forward to a fun and action packed half term in our class!
