Welcome to Oaks Class – Key Stage 2
Pupils are generally divided into two groups for the following subjects in order to provide learning at an appropriate level:
Maths, Science, Computing, PSHE. Other subjects are generally taught together, though tasks will be different to suit age / achievement.
Note that ‘Topic’ usually includes a range of cross-curricular work which encourages children to use and apply skills they have learnt in other subject-specific lesson.
This timetable may change from term to term, depending on the topic focus, any enrichment activities and swimming lessons.
As part of our learning, we sometimes use the online platform Padlet which enables pupils to practise skills, and share their work, receiving immediate responses and feedback both from other pupils and the teacher. Links to useful sites related to their current learning are also available on this site. This platform can be accessed from both school and home and is sometimes used to set homework challenges based on the weekly learning.
Supporting Learning at Home
Please encourage your child to read daily in order to meet their termly reading target. It is really beneficial if they have the opportunity to read to a parent for at least some the time in order to explore new vocabulary or unfamiliar phrases. We use Accelerated Reader Software, which allows children to select from a range of books that will help develop them as readers. Each time they complete a book, they will take an online quiz, the results of which are accessible to parents.
Please ensure that your child keeps a record of their reading in their journal.
We have a popular area on our Padlet page where pupils can leave book reviews and enter into discussions about texts.
We use Maths Passports which encourage your child to systematically develop their mental arithmetic skills. Please help them to regularly practise their fluency – not only working on the latest ‘passport’ but also making sure that previously tested skills are retained.
Pupils also have access to two online learning resources: Mathletics (where tasks are set for them by the teacher) and SumDog. They will all be provided with their own individual login details for these activities.
During the year, pupils will also be given a choice of additional homework activities or be provided with tailored tasks to develop a particular area of learning. Any request from a child for extra homework to practise a particular skill is warmly welcomed, as this develops the independent learning behaviour that we aim to promote.
