2018 Oak News
This half term, we are studying the Victorian period. We have learnt about Queen Victoria and what life was like for her people during her reign. We are looking at the difficulties encountered by Victorian children in their day-to-day lives, for example, being forced to work in order to help provide food for their large families. This work included sweeping chimneys, working in dangerous factories and working on the land. However, we will also celebrate the beginning of early entertainment and leisure time and study prominent artists from the period.
A preview of what we will be covering this half term:
In Art & Design, we are studying the work of LS Lowry and using perspective vanishing point to create cityscapes of Northern Victorian towns.
In Mathematics, Y5 are continuing their work on fractions, decimals and percentages. In the afternoon, all children in Oak class are working through their Schofield & Sims Mental Maths books and are enjoying the challenges which cover the broad spectrum of mathematics skills from number, to shape & space to fractions, decimals and percentages.
In English, we are using our topic on Victorians to write reports about life during the Victorian period, including newspaper reports about the working conditions in the factories and mines. Our class book this half term is ‘Street Child’ by Berlie Doherty.
In History, we will continue with our Victorians topic, culminating in a Victorian Day at the end of the half term during which your child will experience a traditional Victorian school day (details to follow very shortly so keep visiting our class webpage!)
In PE, we are developing our narrative skills in dance. To begin our topic, we looked at and performed our own ‘Haka’, the war dance performed by the New Zealand All Blacks. Some of your children can be very scary! 😊
In Science we are continuing to discover fabulous facts about the universe through our 'Earth in Space' topic.
We continue to sing once a week in KS2 singing lessons with Miss. Medley & Mrs. Blythe.
Mrs. Greatorex is teaching the Oak children French. Please ask your child to speak to you in French to test their growing skills!
Mrs. Harrison is teaching the children PHSE on Thursdays.
