Welcome to Year 5 and 6 > Oak Class

 

 

WELCOME TO THE OAK CLASS PAGE

This term we are very excited to be learning about 'Ancient Egyptians.' We will be learning about famous Egyptians including Tutankhamen, Cleopatra and Ramses II. We will be learning about their lives, their impact and on how they governed Egypt. We will learn about the way they lived and compare in to the lives of others living in Egypt at that time. We will be learning about the work and life of archaeologist Howard Carter, including his ability to discover important burial places including Tutakhamen's tomb.

We will learn about the process of mummification and what Egyptians believed about the afterlife, we will start to consider what we believe happened in the afterlife. We will use our growing knowledge of the Bible to learn and consider stories about Moses and the Ten Plagues of Egypt.

We will be looking at sculptures and artists such as Gormley, Moore and Brancusi. We will be suing our knowledge of sculpture and form to create our own death masks using paper mache and a range of structural materials to create our designs. 

In music we will be using percussion instruments to create music showing different moods to reflect the different parts of Ancient Egypt - we will focus on the Ten plagues of Egypt creating a music story. We will also use body percussion and begin to conduct a short piece of composed music reminding ourselves of pitch, tone, tempo, rhythm, melody, scales and timbre. 

We will be focusing on reading comprehension, evidencing, inference and vocabulary learning in prepapration for our exams. We will also be learning our key concepts of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division - ensuring that our skills are ready to move on to fractions, percentages, ratio and trickier maths topics.

We will be looking at the prodigal son and how it can help us with forgiveness, respect and acceptance. We will be considering how reasonable it is to believe in God. We will be looking in depth at Christian views and beginning to consider our own personal views. We will be learning yoga and breathing exercises to help relax and concentrate on overcoming any worries or concerns we may have. We will also be learning about healthy body, puberty and changes of emotions and our bodies over time. 

In Oak class, we love Maths, reading and English because we are challenged to try our best and have great times learning in a creative topic based way! We will be focusing on a range of skills and growing our knowledge of reading, grammar and arithmetic throughout the year!

We are getting to grips with our Tackling Tables challenge, with everyone of our class on green level. We now have no children on blue level and we even have a few who have completed all of the tackling tables resources and have moved onto Mrs Taylors challenges which include times tables up to 20 x20 and beyond!

We will be continuing our learning outdoors every Wednesday at Mount Amelia, in our pond area, sensory garden or at the Church.

We work hard in school and out of school, handing in our homework every Friday. Our homework is due in on Wednesday

We also enjoy our rewards in Oak class, with house points being given for excellent work, kindness, Christian values, friendship, politeness, helpfulness and maturity. We also work towards choosing time and winning the house point cup. If we are outstanding in an area we may also be able to choose from the treat box full of stationary useful for our lives in school or at High school when we leave.
