Class Oak

Spring Term 2023

If you would like to contact Mr Curwen directly, please use the class email address.

Happy New Year! We hope you have had a great time over Christmas! Thank you to all those parents who gave us presents this year. They were much appreciated. As we start the new calendar year there are a few details and arrangements we would like to make you aware of.

During this Spring term, we will be learning about:

  • English: Narrative: Giants Necklace and Skellig   
  • Science: Materials
  • History: Benin   
  • RE: Easter

PE: Our current timetabled sessions for PE are Tuesdays and Thursdays. The children are adapting well to the new system of coming dressed in their PE kits with a school uniform top. Please can you ensure that this happens each PE day. Year 6 are welcome to wear their hoodies.  

Forest School: Oak will attend Forest School as regularly as possible. Your child will need to bring appropriate clothing into school on that day -please check the weather. You will always receive a text the day before to inform you of when Forest School is taking place. This term this may be a little more flexible in terms of set days.

Reading books: Children are expected to change their reading books at least once a week. Please do hear your children read as often as you possibly can. It really makes a difference. This term your child may be placed on the school reading scheme as we ensure they are reading at their appropriate level.

Homework: This term we will be continuing a ‘Homework Menu’. This can be completed online, in Homework Folders or a combination of the two. Homework is given on a Friday and expected to be handed in the following Wednesday.  

Water Bottles: Please can you ensure that your child has a filled water bottle in school each day. Giving children access to drinking water during the day and after PE lessons is an important part of staying healthy and helping them to concentrate.

I’m sure that this is going to be a really fun term. We are looking forward to all the exciting learning that will be happening. If you have any questions, please contact school or catch me after school.

Yours sincerely

 Mr M Curwen, Mrs West, Miss Coultas and Miss Capstic
