Our topic for the Summer Term is Material World. We will be looking at different properties of materials in Science and will use different materials in our art and DT lessons.

 Please check your child's bag and diary for details of homework we have given. The children have responded well to the new system of half-termly homework tasks this year.

In the lead-up to SATs in the Summer Term we will be giving some weekly revision tasks.

A good website for maths and English activities and games is: www.topmarks.co.uk

Spellings are given out on Fridays and tested the following Thursday.  

PE  continues to be on Tuesdays, and from 21st April Oak will be having a Football session on Friday afternoons, run by Notts Forest in the Community. 

We suggest children have their PE kits in school every day.

Small groups of children from Oak and Ash have been working hard around the school grounds during our Friday gardening sessions.  If your child is chosen to take part, we recommend they bring wellies and some old trousers to change into.

 

SATs are fast approaching!

Please remember these national tests will be taking place from 8th -12th May and its is imperative that no holidays are booked during this time.

Our SATs Clinic is held every Thursday from 3:30- 4:30 p.m. We have had a good turn out at these sessions and the children have responded well to the extra practice and preparation for the tests.  The last session will be on Thursday 4th May.

There will be a breakfast club from 8.30 a.m. on Monday to Thursday of SATs week where children can have toast and a drink and chat with their friends before the tests to help them relax and realise they're not on their own!

SATs week timetable:

Monday 8th May:  English Reading Paper

Tuesday 9th May: Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling Papers 1 & 2

Wednesday 10th May: Maths Papers 1 & 2

Thursday 11th May: Maths Paper 3

 

Residential to Edale takes place on 23rd-26th May. 

We will shortly begin auditioning and rehearsing for our Summer KS2 production... it's going to be a right old pantomime!

 

 

Oak and Ash Class got into the festive spirit during the annual trip to sing carols at Milton Court.

They always love to see this, joining in with the singing and the children love to chat with the residents afterwards. 

We were overwhelmed with the amazing array of cakes donated for Red Nose Day and Year 6 enjoyed running the sale during and after school- they proved to be very persuasive in their selling techniques!
