Oak Class Weekly Newsletter 6.1.23

Welcome back!

We have had a super start to the term in Oak Class.

In English, we have started a new instructions unit, where the children have made great links to what they have previously learnt about instructions. We will, eventually, create some instructional directions on how visitors and new children can find Oak Class.

In Maths, we have started to look at multiplication and division again. We are now developing our mathematical skills and have begun looking at multiplying 4 digit numbers by 1 digit numbers and 2 digit by 2 digit. Impressive!

Unfortunately due to illness, we were unable to start our  ‘Read the Game’ programme this week, so we this will commence from next Thursday (12th January). PE will remain on Thursdays too, so correct PE kit is required: white t-shirt, plain dark hoodie or school jumper/cardigan, plain dark jogging bottoms or leggings and trainers or pumps.

Our Golden Certificate Winner this week is Willow! She has shown great efforts towards her learning. She read multiple times over the Christmas break and has come back with a great attitude to learning. Well done Willow!

The children have, also, been given new homework for this half term. Please find below:

S1 Homework – Space&mountains

Both documents can be found on the class information page.

Could I ask children get back into the habit of reading at home and recording in reading records, as this can have great benefits for children’s learning in other curriculum areas too!

Have a great weekend!
