Oak Class Blog - 11th March 2022
This week, Oak Class have continued to follow the life of evacuee Willie in 'Goodnight Mr Tom', consolidated their decimals learning in Maths and looked at how propaganda was used in World War II.
Oak Class have started looking at a new genre of writing this week - balanced arguments. They explored the features and looked at some good examples of a balanced argument. Over the coming weeks, they will be learning to write their own balanced argument linked to the statement: Should children have been evacuated during World War II?
This was our final week of fractions, decimals and percentages and the children consolidated their learning through problem solving, reasoning and games, which you can see them carrying out in the pictures below. Our next unit will be measures.
Oak Class completed their evacuee suitcases with enthusiasm, and these can now be seen on display in the classroom. What a wonderful display they make! We moved onto looking at the question: How was propaganda used as a weapon in World War II? The children took part in some excellent discussions about this theme and went on to produce their own propaganda posters.
This week, Oak Class continued their materials learning in Science, exploring how to separate pasta, rice, sand, and paper clips from each other. The children really enjoyed this practical task as you can see from the photographs below.
Next week is Science Week at Spooner Row (an email with details has been sent to all parents). We have planned some engaging investigations for the children to take part in and have some whole school activities running throughout the week.
Next Friday is Comic Relief Day. The children can dress in red and bring in a contribution to this charity.
