Oak class teacher is Mrs Lawrence

Welcome back to the Summer Term
Oak class have been busy learning about the Maya number, calendar and writing system. Continuing this theme, they have made their own logographs in DT. In maths, children have produced 3D shape power points and in English, they have written diary entries from the perspective of Miguel (a character from the film, Coco).
In Oak class, children have been writing their own, epic tales based on the Maya creation story; making discoveries about the life-cycles of birds; confusing ratio questions in maths and staying 'Happy' with Pharrell Williams in music.
Red Nose Day - we have been taking part in the Dance-athon, practicing for performing the Macarena in assembly.

Oak this week have started their new Maya topic: making lap books about Ancient Maya art and leaflets about their cities, culture and life-styles. In Science, they’ve invented and categorized their own animals. Maths was super exciting – the children have been solving algebra 'brain teasers' and on World Book Day, they made bookmarks, persuasive posters and wrote alliteration poems based on the book ‘June 26 1999’.
