Our Curriculum for 2021-22
Please find below the curriculum flyer for this half term which will provide you with an overview of what your child will be learning about in school. This will allow you to support your child at home and gain a greater understanding to the work they will be undertaking.
Homework will be put onto google classroom for the children to access and complete. This will be sent on a Friday and is due back on Wednesday the following week. Homework each week will vary depending on what is happening in class but most weeks this will consist of one piece of English and one piece of maths.
In addition to this homework we also ask that:
Children try to read 5 times per week- Strive for Five! This can be achieved through either reading their school book that they bring home or reading another book or reading material that they have access to at home.Please ensure that you write all reads into the reading log and send these to school daily so that we can see how many times children are reading and count them towards their 100 reads.
Alongside reading, we ask that children access TTrockstars regularly to ensure that their times tables recall and recognition is quick and can support them in their maths work. We have also recently purchased Doodlemaths which can be used at home through their school login.
Spelling books are sent home each night for children to practice and should be returned daily. They will be tested at least once a fortnight and will progress through their booklets accordingly.
PE in Spring One will be on a Wednesday, on this day your child is able to come into school wearing black jogging pants/leggings and trainers with their normal polo shirt and school jumper.
Swimming will be on Friday, for this the children are required to come into school already wearing their swim wear underneath their uniform (this is a requirement from Biro Leisure).
Don’t forget to follow us on Twitter @TheOaksCPSyc to get frequent updates about what we have been up to in class.
