Welcome to the Spring Term

 

We are very excited this term to be learning about the characteristics and features of rivers and mountain ranges around the world, including a detailed exploration of the ecosystems and processes that shape them and the land around them. 

 

At the bottom of this page are four documents - vocabulary, a knowledge organiser and home learning tasks for this unit. The home learning tasks are optional and do not need to be brought into school but will support your child's learning.

 

In addition, we will be following the national curriculum requirements of English, Maths, Science, RHSE and RE. In English, we will be looking at a range of fiction, non-fiction and poetry texts and developing our understanding of spellings, punctuation and grammar. In Maths, we will be developing and applying the number system, securing numerical fluency and calculating. We will also be exploring length, perimeter, fractions and decimals.

 

P.E. at school will take place on Mondays and Tuesdays where we will continue to wear our PE kit to school. The kit consist of a sky blue polo, royal blue Oaklands jumper, royal blue cotton shorts, socks and suitable sports trainers. For health and safety reasons earrings and watches should be removed for all PE lessons and long hair must be tied up.

 

Homework

Reading:                               Every night (15 minutes – please comment on your child’s reading record).

                                               Reading books will be changed on a Monday and each pupil will take two books home 

                                               depending on their level of reading ability. Please make sure children have their books 

                                               available to read every day.

 

Topic:                                    This will be given out every other week on a Friday and is to be returned the following                                                       Wednesday in homework books. 

 

Doodle Maths:                       Daily Maths practice to ensure that gaps are continually being filled and there is                                                                continual progression

 

We are supported in class by Mrs Vij and Mr Woollin. If you, or anyone you know, has skills or knowledge that could enrich our in-class learning, we would love to hear from you and see if we can make use of this in our lessons. 

 

If you have any concerns, or questions regarding your child, please contact the school office (admin@oaklands.herts.sch.uk) to arrange a meeting. 

 

Kind regards,
