Oak Spring 1
Crossing Continents – Modern Greece
This half-term Oak class will be exploring the geography of Modern Greece.
In English we will be creating persuasive writing – trying to encourage people to take a holiday to Greece! We will also be producing syllabic poetry (haiku and cinquain) inspired by our values theme week.
We will be working on our fraction skills. We will be exploring position and direction, using coordinates to give instructions. We will continue to develop a deeper understanding of area and multiplication, and addition and subtraction through measures.
In Geography, we will be learning about Modern Greece as a deep study of a European country. We will learn about the differences between physical and human geography and will identify features of each in maps and photographs. We will use a wide range of maps (including digital) as part of our studies. We will link our Geography work to our English lessons and our next History unit.
We are going to develop our art skills through our Chinese New Year theme week. We will be studying traditional Chinese art techniques and using them to create our own original art work. We will study famous Chinese artists and their impact on the Chinese art movement.
We are will continue to develop our performance skills this half term. Some of us will be taking part in ukulele lessons with More Music, and some of us will be developing our singing skills and learning how to focus on beat and rhythm in performance while using Boomwhackers.
This half term we will be swimming and developing our invasion games skills through hockey in our Friday PE lesson with Mrs Dodd.
Oak Team are really looking forward to another fun and action packed half term in our class!
