What does the Curriculum in Oak Class look like?

Term Two – Frozen Kingdoms

In term two we shall be wrapping  up warm and heading in to the frozen landscapes that cover our planet. Exploring both the Arctic and Antarctic regions, we will examine the varied and determined life that exists in these remote regions. Our English text this term, Shackleton’s Journey, will show us how humans respond to these chilly conditions and we will also be studying the tragic maiden voyage of the Titanic.

Term One – A Child’s War

This term we shall be studying the impact of World War Two on the lives of those who lived through it, using the fantastic novel Goodnight Mr Tom by Michelle Magorian for inspiration.

We shall be exploring these questions:

Why were children evacuated? What was it like to be separated from your family? What was rationing? What protection did they have against air raids?

Homework: Pupils are expected to complete their set MyMaths homework and read for at least 30 mins every evening.  Please complete and sign reading records each night.   Pupils homework projects will be displayed as part of the express section at the end of the unit of work. Pupils can choose whether to present their homework as written work, ICT or something creative.  If pupils decide to choose something creative such as a painting then they should choose either written work or I.C.T. for their next homework project so that they are using different skills throughout the year.
