Oak (Year 5)

Term 3

Mr Latter and Mrs Bolejko would like to welcome you to Oak Class!


In Maths we follow the White Rose curriculum, which involves using concrete and pictorial methods to solve fluency calculations, problem solving and reasoning.   

We are also developing the children maths mastery by following a new Maths Mastery programme, whereby the children will develop a solid foundation for conceptual reasoning.


In English, we are following the Pathways to Write Programme and linking other select texts to our Connected Learning. Our key texts this term are: Arthur and the Golden Rope and Neil Gaiman's Norse Mythology. There is a key focus vocabulary for writing as well as editing and improving our grammar, spelling and punctuation, we look at specific rules and patterns each week and complete regular spelling tests. 


In reading, the children will continue to their home reading and guided reading texts. Once complete they need to take their Accelerated Reader quiz. Our aim is an average of 85% and above. Ash class so far have read over 5 million words since September!


Our Connected Learning big question is...

  • Who were the superheroes of the past?


Please see our home learning challenges in the document below. This homework is due in the last week of term to be presented to the class.


Should the school be closed at any point then 'Home Learning' will be provided through the online platform 'Seesaw'.

Log in information can be found in the children's reading records.


Seesaw will also be used by us to post: Home learning challenges, termly spelling lists, reading challenges and class information. Your child can then choose whether to bring their work into class or respond via Seesaw. 


Children are provided with all log in information in the back of the children's reading records for Seesaw, Accelerated Reader and Times Tables Rockstars.

Please contact the office (on 01233 614660 or email on ) if you have any questions or would like to arrange a time to talk. The children also have their reading records which you can write notes in to communicate with us.


Kind regards,

Mr Latter (Class Teacher) and Mrs Bolejko (Classroom Assistant)
