What a great week Oak Class have had!
This week we have been busy looking at story writing. We started the week focusing on our last split - diagraph sound and have applied our phonemes to recorded graphemes. We then looked at using expanded noun phrases to add description to a firework scene from our focus text. Oak Class have had a big push on their punctuation too this week to ensure that our writing can be the best it can be!
We will be writing our own stories next week linked to our focus text 'The Owl who was Afraid of the Dark' and I cannot wait to see Oak Class apply all their learning to their own masterpieces!
In maths this week we have been looking at height and length. We know what the unit of measure is that measures length and height and have looked at comparing measures using our previously learnt knowledge of <,> and =.
We have looked at ordering different lengths and heights and then further applied our knowledge to problem solving.
I am so proud of Oak Class. For the third week in a row, we have won the TT rockstars cup for the most children playing in the whole school.
Oak Class are making such amazing progress with their retrieval of their times tables and I am beginning to see this knowledge being applied more confidently in their maths lessons.
We have been so busy this week in the afternoons. In science, we have been identifying and naming different animals and plants and their habitats including micro-habitats. We looked at different habitats around the world, the types of animals and plants that can be found there and how they have adapted in order to survive and thrive in those environments.
In geography, we have been using geographical vocabulary in order to identify basic human and physical geography around our immediate locality and will be comparing this to another area in a non-European country.
