Week 5 and 6 in Oaks

Week 5 in Oaks Class

In Numeracy we are now focusing on addition and subtraction, starting with looking at the number bonds of the numbers up to 10 and learning how to use the addition symbol.

We are still investigating our senses in Science and this week we tested whether our sense of smell helps us to taste. We found out it does!

For our topic we are investigating our local area. We have been looking at what we can see in our local area and recording our observations.

 

Week 6 in Oaks Class

As it has been Safeguarding Week, we spent our ICT time thinking about how to be safe on the internet. Our internet safety motto is ‘Before you go and click, you need to stop and think and tell someone.’

We also had a very special visitor to tell us about how to be safe in a car. We all know how important it is to wear our seatbelts at all times in a car!


Week 4 in Oaks

admin on: Oaks Class

This week in Literacy we have looked at using adjectives in our writing. We have been describing the Big Bad Wolf so that we can make a warning poster to let everyone know about the terrible wolf.

In Numeracy we have been working on comparing amounts of objects and numbers by using the language of ‘more than’, ‘less than’, ‘greatest’ and ‘smallest’.

As we are finding out about our bodies in science, we used our senses to solve the problem of which teddy belonged to Miss Ashton’s niece. We all enjoyed smelling, tasting, listening and touching to find the correct teddy.

Week 3 in Oaks

This week in Literacy we have learnt to tell the story of ‘The Three Little Pigs’ by using actions to help us remember the words. We have practised retelling the story at the beginning of each lesson and we are now story telling experts! This has really helped us to write sentences to retell the story and we have all been trying our best to remember our capital letters, finger spaces and full stops.

In Numeracy we have been working on counting forwards and backwards to and from 10. We have also been finding 1 more and 1 less of a number.


Planting Beans

admin on: Oaks Class

This week in Oaks class we have been planting beans and seeing if they grow. We put some cotton wool into a clear bag and then added water to it. We mixed the water into the cotton wool to create a damp environment for the bean to grow in. We then planted our beans into the bag. We've now left the bags by the window in the sun and we're going to see if the beans begin to grow. We'll post pictures here later of our results!

This week in Oaks.

In Oaks Class this week we have been getting into the spirit of Roald Dahl Day. We have had a lot of fun meeting The Enormous Crocodile and we have been writing some very interesting sentences based on the story. We can’t wait to make our very own crocodiles on Friday! In Numeracy we have been practicing our counting and we are now beginning to compare numbers using mathematical language. We are learning about the human body in Science and we are becoming very good at labelling all of our body parts.
