Welcome to Oak Class
23/09/22: After the sad passing of our Queen and the Bank holiday which allowed us to watch her funeral, we have still packed so much into our shorter week.
Our visit to the local Hindu temple enabled us to see how religion is celebrated in our local community and we were able to see, first hand, features of a Hindu Mandir and meet the priest.
On Friday all Year 6 visited Holme Pierrepont for our Safety Zone Visit. The behaviour of the children was commented on by the many providers and we were super proud to have taken them.
Along with our two visits, we have continued looking at the properties of number investigating factors and multiples and used semi-colons to replace conjunctions when two clauses were related in our English work.
16/09/22: This week we have found out what actually happened to Mr Jones; he has been terrorized by the pesky gargoyles! The children have written some detailed descriptions using noun phrases and precise vocabulary.
In maths we have continued with place value rounding integers and using negative numbers in context.
After researching myths and legends from the UK we have gone further afield – to Europe- looking at countries, their location using compass points and have started to be more precise using longitude and latitude.
09/09/22: This week we have started our Literacy topic with a crime scene trying to work out what had happened to the character of Mr Jones. We now know his fate was due to some pesky gargoyles!
We also enjoyed our morning with Mrs Heath building dens, pond dipping and developing our team work, resilience and co-operation skills during Forest School.
Our knowledge of place value has increased into tens of millions and how powers of ten can increase or decrease values.
We located counties in the UK where myths and stories have passed down throughout history for example the Lincoln Imp, Mother Shipton and The Hairy Hands of Dartmoor.
