Hello Oak Class! It was great to see you all this morning and have a lovely chat. I'm glad you're all looking forward to returning to school on Monday, and hopefully we managed to put your minds at rest those who had some worries. I'm certainly looking forward to seeing you all, as well as teaching you In Real Life! Thank you those who have already sent in photos of your dressed up teddies from our very creative teddy dressing up session this morning. I've also had one very cute cat photo. So please remember to send in more and I'll add them below.
See you all on Monday!

Well done on another great week, Oak class. You have published some superb pieces of writing based on A Midsummer night's Dream, so very well done!
Below is the weekly plan for the coming week, and also a lovely book and workbook about returning to school, so please read and work through these before your return.
For Science week, which runs between Friday 5th and Sunday 14th March, I have arranged a Photography competition for all you budding photographers, called 'Science in Nature' (please see the poster below for details). Please submit your entries to me via the Oak class email. There will also be a 'Build an Insect' activity which we will complete in the classroom.
Have a lovely weekend!
If you need any support please contact Ms Law on the following email:
Lovely to see you all this morning and well done for all your hard work and perseverance this half term. I hope you and your families enjoy a well-earned rest during the break and I'll see you again soon.

Hello again, Oak Class! It has been great to see all of you again in our daily live lessons. I have been impressed with your hard work and commitment and regular submissions to Google Classroom and the class email. It's so nice to see that your standard of work and presentation has been so high and I was particularly impressed this week by some of your writing in English. You should all be very proud of yourselves. Below I've posted some of this week's Monet artwork, maths artwork and Census posters, as well as some of the impressive writing you've submitted.
Keep up the high standard, and as a special Year 6 treat we'll meet online for breakfast from 8:40 next Thursday (11/02/21) morning, before our live session on that day.
Please find the weekly plan below, and you will find this and all planning and resources on Google classroom.
Please enjoy a well-earned break this weekend and I'll see you at 9:00 on Monday morning!

Greetings Oak Class. What a great week of online learning and live lessons! I was so impressed with 100% attendance to live sessions and the super work that was submitted to Google Classroom. Please make sure you all submit work for each English and Maths lesson though. Make sure you have a compass for Maths on Thursday. This week there will also be another Purple Mash reading journal to complete, as well as a serial mash text and quiz.
Please keep the submissions coming in for the Three Peaks Challenge - we've had quite a few and the competition is tough! Also send in your artwork, as well as any other work you'd like me to see.
The weekly timetable can be found below, and all plans and resources can be found on Google Classroom. I look forward to seeing you all on Monday at 9:00!

Good evening Oak class! How lovely it was to see you all on Thursday morning, and I'm sure you're all looking forward to this week's live learning sessions on Google Classroom. Just a reminder, Monday's lesson will be our first live English session starting 'A Midsummer Night's Dream', so make sure you have a copy of the text printed and ready to use. For the independent home learning maths session you'll need a protractor. As I mentioned on Thursday, it might be a good idea to print out your resources for the week when they appear on your Google Classroom at 5 O'Clock today (Sunday). Hopefully all will run smoothly, but if it doesn't, please don't worry, it's a steep learning curve for us all!
Well done for your hard work and commitment again this week, and for the pictures you sent of your superb artwork! Well done to those who have sent evidence/details of their Three Peaks Challenge step count - I'll also be submitting mine to Miss Prentice this week! It's not too late to send yours in so please do so.
I'm looking forward to seeing you in the morning at 9 O'Clock!

Please start working through your revision guides when you have time, if you haven't already.
Good morning. Just a quick note on 'The Three Peaks Challenge'. This is a virtual challenge that you can take part in by simply recording your steps. Miss Prentice will be producing certificates for those who manage to conquer any, or all, of the peaks. Please look at the Powerpoint below! You have until Friday 12th February (I'm hoping to get one of Miss Prentice's certificates myself!).

Very well done to you all for working hard to complete last week's activities.
I hope you all had a good weekend!
Below is a weekly lesson plan and documents for week two of this half term. The plan is divided up into daily activities which are presented in columns. There are a few additional activities which can be done anytime during the week. When participating in the Oak Academy online lessons, make sure you have a pencil/pen and paper so that you can complete the activities when asked to pause the lesson. It is important that you complete these activities as part of your learning.
I've also attached copies of the Year 3/4 and 5/6 statutory spellings for you to practise and try using in written sentences.
A very Happy New Year to you all!
