Oak Class Blog - 26th November 2021
This week, Oak Class have enjoyed being super sporty, with swimming sessions, rugby taster sessions and scorpion volleyball in PE. They have also continued to work hard in all other areas of the curriculum.
The class have continued their exploration of myths and have created imaginative settings for their quest. In guided reading, as a class we have continued to read 'Medusa's Curse' and use this as a basis for our comprehension work. Next week, Oak Class will be writing their own Greek Myth, which I can't wait to read.
Fractions came to visit Oak Class this week and I have been so impressed with how the children have embraced this learning, even though some of them told me that they didn't like fractions (hopefully they now have a different opinion on them). We used practical equipment like playing cards and dominoes to compare different sized fractions and tried paper folding to work out equivalents.
I had the privilege of being able to join the class for part of their music lesson this week. They have been learning the song 'Joyful Joyful' and using xylophones to accompany the song. As you can see from the picture below, the children were 'joyful' while singing the song.
On Thursday morning, it was the turn of Year 5 to experience a rugby taster session. Although it was cold and a bit muddy, the children had a wonderful time and learnt so many tag rugby skills in a short space of time. You can see their wonderful skills in the photographs below.
If your child is interested in carrying out more rugby sessions like this, Wymondham Rugby Club have a minis section and are keen to add more members. For more information, please go to www.wymondhamrfc.com
Have a lovely weekend.
