Oaks Autumn Term 2020

This half term our whole school theme is Dinosaurs!

We will be enjoying an amazing visit from a Tyrannosaurus Rex to engage us in our learning during this topic.  We will be learning all about evolution and inheritance in science, learning how long ago dinosaurs roamed the earth and how fossils are formed and what they can teach us what earth was like millions of years ago. Alongside this, Oaks will be using maps and globes to locate the places fossils have been found. We will be learning to sing in a chorus with increased control and expression. We will be learning musical notation in order to investigate rhythm and pace in music.

In PE we will be taking part in orienteering in the school grounds and learning some ball control skills in basketball. Through ICT sessions, Oaks will develop their coding skills, coding games using The Hour of Code resources on-line. In Religion and World Views the question “Why do some people think God exists?” will be investigated and discussed. In Personal, Social and Health Education we will be learning to become more emotionally literate, taking part in activities and games that make us think about respect, responsibility and resilience.

PE is on a Wednesday and Thursday, so a kit should be in school every week. Please also try to read at least four times per week at home in order to keep practising this vital skill. Spellings should be practised each evening for a test on Fridays. Remember that any messages can come through the home school books or by phone to Miss Whittaker.
