In Oaks Class we are committed to creating a positive learning environment where we can enjoy our learning as well as have the opportunities to reach our full potential. We are respectful to everyone in our class, and we recognise how valuable each and every person is. Our growth mindset ‘ The Learning Pit’ helps us to grow in resilience, and be more aspirational and confident in taking on new challenges. In Oaks, we value our roles of responsibility and we are committed to taking on various roles to ensure our classroom remains well-organised and cared for.
We enjoy our challenging curriculum, where we build upon what we have learned from last year. Our maths lessons allow everyone the opportunity to access the same learning, and we enjoy talk tasks, which help us to think deeply about our mathematics. Oaks Class is encouraged to explore different ways of explaining our mathematical thinking, and to show our understanding through pictures as well as words or numerals. We are also given the opportunities to apply our learning in each lesson to more challenging contexts.
Our English lessons cover the teaching of grammar, spelling and punctuation. Performance poetry is particularly interesting, and we enjoy being creative with language. Oaks covers many different genres and text types to allow us to explore the world around us.
History allows us to investigate diverse cultures like the Shang Dynasty, as well as travelling all the way back to the Stone Age. Our history and geography curriculum is challenging and encourages us to ask questions and explore evidence.
All subjects are valued in Oaks, none more so than science, which covers exciting topics such as magnetism through the study of forces. We build upon our early knowledge of animals including humans as well as how to stay healthy. In the summer, we study rocks and soil formation – a topic, which helps us describe in simple terms how fossils are formed when things that have lived are trapped within rock. Furthermore we get to find out all about the significant discoveries of Mary Anning!
We show a love of reading and particularly enjoy reading to each other!
