Our Class Saint is St. Peter and our class virtue is Confidence.
In Oak class we desire for our children to be safe and happy, as well as being excited and challenged by their learning. We provide an environment where each child can strive to be the best they can be. The curriculum topics show how we enable pupils to demonstrate progression of skills built on from previous years, as well as allowing the opportunity to teach and learn new subject knowledge.
The topics that will be taught this year in Oak show a full coverage of the National Curriculum as well as providing learning opportunities that will capture the creativity and imagination of our children. It is through these topics we endeavour to Believe in God, ourselves and others.
Our topic work this year begins in the Autumn with a history unit on the ‘Ancient Egyptians’, and will be followed by Geography in the form of ‘Rivers’. After Christmas, History will be 'Anglo Saxons' with a local Geography study of ‘Ilkley’. In the Summer term we will be focusing our learning on 'Windrush' and 'The Rainforest'.
I am planning an exciting array of activities, trips and visitors, which we hope, will fire their imaginations, harness their enthusiasm and improve their writing.
Completing the year with our class residential, thus giving us the opportunity to further explore our wider environment. These topics allow the children not only to ask questions about their local environment but fuels healthy curiosity in the children about themselves and the world around them.
