Welcome to Oak class!
Miss Leigh, Mrs Hood and the pupils of Oak class have enjoyed the first few weeks in their new class.
The first week we did some junk modelling - creating things that will help the planet.
Our Topic this term is 'Our world, our home' and we have been exploring how the earth is formed, volcanoes and rocks. We have also been learning about place value in maths and ordering numbers to 1000.
This week we have been learning how to estimate placing numbers on a numberline, finding out how fossils are formed, performing a drama based on the story Escape from Pompeii and making a seismograph in geography to test for earthquakes (this was what we needed the cereal packets for!).
The most exciting thing that happened this week for Oak Class was Fudge, our new class pet, has very generously been given a new fish tank by the grandparents of one of the class children. We also erupted some amazing volcanoes the children have made as homework - and with careful guidance from Mrs Hood, the children made corn dollies in RE, to celebrate the Harvest Festival on Friday.
This week we did some graffiti maths - seeing how many different ways we can make 2 and 3 digit numbers. We also learnt more about music notation and playing the recorder. The children have been learning in French how to count to 10 and stood in a numberline.
On the final week of term we held our red carpet event - Rock Fest - to showcase all the work we have done this term. The children put together experiments and activities to show their families. Have a great half term everyone!
