This week in Oakwood our students have really enjoyed learning about....
English - This week,we have been focusing on reading and reviewing books. We have continued reading our chapter book 'Charlie and the Chocolate factory' and have also completed a book review of the Australian Book 'Wilfred Gordon McDonald Partridge'. This story explores the tale of a little boy who lives next door to a nursing home and is friends with the elderly that live there, in particular a lady named Miss Nancy. One day he hears his Mum and Dad talking about how she is losing her memory, This concerns him, so he asks all his elderly pals what a memory is. He then sets off on a journey to collect items that help Miss Nancy regain her memory. Each object he collects, he takes to her reminds her of something wonderful that has happened in her life and helps her remember once more. All the students really enjoyed this book and have written some really lovely and well thought out book reviews on this book.
Maths - This week in maths, we have been learning about ordering numbers. Students have been really engaging with the lessons in which we are practicing ordering numbers from smallest to largest. We have also been practicing our terminology of 'more' 'less' 'bigger' 'smaller' and 'fewer' during this process.
Topic - This week in Topic, we have been extending our knowledge from the wonderful world of Alice and Wonderland to create our own unique magical wonderlands. We have created a detailed picture of what our magical wonderlands look like, and each of these were well designed, creative and unique. Students then reflected on these magical wonderlands, by writing about what they might ; see, touch, smell, taste and hear in their magical wonderlands!
Thank you all for handing in your parent evening forms, I look forward to further discussing your child and what we have been learning this term with you soon!
