Oak Class

Welcome to Oak’s Class Page

 

Oak Class is taught by Mrs Greenwood and is supported by Miss Elderton and Miss Govier. 

We have children who are in Year 5 and Year 6 within the class.

 

In Spring Term 1 we will be exploring Rivers (from Source to Sea) in Geography, learning about Digital Art in Art, developing our Data Handling skills in Computing, discovering Buddhism in RE and working on Looping and Mixing in Music to create our own instrumental tracks. In Science we are going to be studying Living Things and Their Habitats this half term.

Our class novel will be The Legend of Robin Hood. In English we will be looking at narrative writing inspired by the themes of Robin Hood. Later in the half term we will be learning to write explanation texts, using our geography topic as a focus.

This is our newsletter for the half term:

In Autumn Term 2 our topic was The Industrial Revolution. We focused on how significant the Lancashire Cotton Industry was for the people of Lancashire and Beyond. We continued to work on a range of music skills with our weekly lesson with Rick from More Music.

We read King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table by Marcia Williams and Arthur and the Always King by Kevin Crossley Holland. We created narrative writing inspired by the Legend of King Arthur.

In Autumn Term 1 our topic was The Future of Our Planet. During this topic we learnt about the effect of air pollution and climate change on our planet. In Science, we explored the properties and changes of materials. In Art we focussed on developing skills in stencilling and closely studied the art work of Banksy. We started to develop our swimming skills in our weekly lesson. Our class novel was Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson.
