Oak Learning Blog – Spring 1 Week 2

By Debbie Barlow on Sunday, January 20, 2019 in News. No Comments

Hello everyone,

Welcome to this week’s Oak Learning Blog! We are back in the swing of things now at school and the children have been working as hard as ever this week. Read on to find out what we’ve been up to…

In English, we have continued to look at our Power of Reading book, which we learned is called ‘Grendel: A cautionary tale about chocolate’, by David Lucas. The children imagined that they could write a note to Grendel, telling him what they think about his choices in the story. They predicted what might happen next in the story, and made inferences about Grendel’s character.

In Maths, the children have been looking more closely at division, as well as practicing their times tables. We looked at the relationship between multiplying and dividing, and how this linked to odd and even numbers. We have been focusing on the 2x table.

In DT this week, the children have begun their sewing projects, creating bags out of felt and using blanket to join the material together, before adding a button and other design features.

In Geography, we have started to look at Ghana in more detail, comparing and contrasting life there to life in England. The children have started to make a fact file about what they have learned. We learnt this week all about the food and weather.

In Computing, the children completed their unit on spreadsheets by making a variety of pictograms, block charts and tables to represent data they had collected in the classroom.

In RE, we looked at what Christians believe about getting on with one another, and read the story of ‘The Good Samaritan’. The children then acted out the story, and could explain the choices made and how they linked to the message of the story. There were some wonderful performances.

And in Music, we continued our Charanga unit on rock music, this week looking at Queen. The children listened to ‘We Will Rock You’ and ‘Don’t Stop Me Now’, and could describe features of the genres and songs well. For our Charanga song, ‘I Wanna Play in a Band’, we continued learning the recorder accompaniment.

Thank you for reading the blog this week. Have a lovely weekend, and I will see you all on Monday.

Love Mrs Barlow xxx
