High Frequency Words
Here is a list of the High Frequency Words that we are working on at the moment. Children are working on reading these words on sight and spelling them correctly. We are also trying hard to spell the days of the week.
Here are some ideas to help support your child with their High Frequency Words, at home.
SPRING ONE
This half term our topic is 'Who Started The Great Fire of London?' Have a look at all the exciting things that we will be learning about.
 
LONDON
In preparation for our 'Great Fire of London' topic, we have been finding out about London in the modern day. We have researched London using books and the internet and written reports. William Whiskerson helped us to find out more about London. Why not watch the video again at home?
 
SUPER SHAPES
In maths, we have been learning to names and describe 2d and 3d shapes. We have been sorting 3d shapes and investigating their properties - we had lots of fun when we tried to work out which 3d shapes roll and which do not.  
 
BRILLIANT BALANCES 
In P.E. we have been learning to create strong shapes with our bodies. We started off using the floor and the mats. We have now started to balance on the P.E. equipment.
AUTUMN TWO
Have a look at all of the fun things that we will be learning about during the second half of the Autumn term. 
 
CRAZY CREATURES
This half term our topic is 'Crazy Creatures' we are going to be researching different creatures, so that we can become experts. 
 
OWL PELLET INVESTIGATION
We have been finding out about food chains. We found out that barn owls are carnivores, so they eat small mammals, birds and insects. Barn owls eat their prey whole, but they cannot digest the bones and fur. Every now and again owls (and other birds,) cough up pellets which contain their undigested food. We were given some owl pellets by The Barn Owl Trust, so that we could dissect them and find out more about what barn owls eat.
 
AMAZING ARCTIC 
We have been answering the question 'What is Life Like in the Arctic Circle?' We have been finding out about the climate in the Arctic Circle, locating countries with areas in the Arctic Circle on maps and in atlases and describing human and physical features of the Arctic Circle. We watched Barnaby Bear's Norwegian Adventure to help us find out more about Nordkapp.     
AUTUMN ONE
Have a look at all of the exciting things that we will be doing during the first half of the Autumn Term. 
 
PERFECT PLACE VALUE
We have been learning to represent numbers using pictures and objects and to say what each digit in a two digit number (to 30) is worth.  Why not play a fun, ICT game to help with your place value knowledge?
 
THE ALIENS ARE COMING!!!
Today the children from KS1 had a very special visit from the ALIENS!! They crash landed in Link Club and asked us for some help. They set us a special mission. We have been asked to find out all about life on Earth. Our first job is to name differnt parts of the body and find out about their functions.
 
A DAY IN THE LIFE OF BOB (The Man on the Moon)
We have a visit from Bob and he has got a new job, he is going to be The Man on the Moon! Bob has got a little problem - he doesn't actaully know ANYTHING about the moon! We are going to help Bob. We are going to research space and the moon and write down all of the information that we find out.
 
A BEST FRIEND FOR BOB
Bob is looking for a new BEST FRIEND EVER! We think that an alien would be a great friend for Bob, so we have made some from playdough and tried to use lots of lovely adjectives to describe them.
 
PAINTING ALIENS
We used 'Paint' to create pictures of Bob's new friends.
 
A VISIT TO THE LIBRARY
We walked to the library in Runcorn Old Town. While we were there, we looked for book about Neil Armstrong and The Space Race. Click on the link below to find out about the events that are taking place at Halton's libraries and to find out how to register for a library card.
 
HAPPY BIRTHDAY ST. MICHAEL'S CHURCH
Oak Class would like to wish St. Michael's Church a  very happy 125th birthday! We made a beautiful angel that will be on display at the Flower Festival this week.
 
A VISIT FROM CHESTER ZOO 
Today we had a lovely visit from the Education Officers from Chester Zoo. We have been learning all about different animals, including humans and the Education Officers helped us to find out more about minibeasts.
