Oak 2019 - 2020

Mrs Reeves

I am embarking on my third year here at Kingsley teaching upper KS2. Your children will soon discover that I am passionate about all curriculum areas (just peek inside Oak's Discovery Room to see that), but being Maths Subject Leader, I get especially excited about maths, science and the world around us. I am full of anticipation about the year ahead and know that you are too. I am sure that, as a team, you will achieve success through hard work and determination, and will have great fun on your journey through school.

Outside of school, I am most happy in the outdoors – walking with my dog and family on Helsby Hill, Delamere Forest or in the mountains of North Wales. In fact, a perfect day often involves a walk in the mountains with family and friends followed by a cup of coffee and a cake!!

Happy Easter!

What an amazing time we had at our residential in North Wales last week. Each and every one of us rose to the challenges of rock climbing, gorge scrambling and canoeing working in teams to support one another. The ethos of Oaklands focused on respect, commitment, reponsibility and trust and your children certainly displayed those attributes across all the activities. Please see the gallery on the home screen for more photographs.

This term is another busy one with SATs rapidly approaching; your children have prepared so well during the year and we will be looking forward to doing our best during SATs week (13th-17th May) and enjoying the afternoon treats. In Literacy, we are studying Queen of the Falls which is an intrepid woman adventurer who went down Niagara Falls in a barrell!!

Queen of the Falls

As part of transition activities, we will be looking at our role within the local community and contributions on a wider scale as young adults. We will be following the MoneySense programme for example, to introduce Y6s to money management. And our play, with the Y5s will be decided soon.... watch this space.

The full Summer curriculum is attached and can be dowloading.

Kingsley Journals

Please ensure that these are brought into school on a daily basis, as this will be the main form of contact between school and home. Please also find your child's weekly spellings and weekly guided reading homeworks in their journals.  

Homework

Homework can be found in your child's journal in the form of a 'Homework Menu' which also outlines those exciting optional puddings! In addition, weekly homework for Team Oak is:

  • Weekly spellings - spelling tests will be moving to a Monday as of 15.09.18.
  • Daily reading for pleasure - I have attached a fabulous book list below if you’re in need of good book ideas!
  • Guided reading homework - this will be set when I do a guided read with your child (on the same day each week / your child will be able to inform you of this day) and your child will have one week to complete it.
  • Times tables practise
  • MyMaths tasks  www.mymaths.co.uk/ 

PE

Please ensure that PE kits are kept in for the whole week as we do on occasion have opportunities for additional PE sessions. Currently, PE days are a Tuesday (outdoor) and a Friday (intdoor).  Trainers will also be needed each day for the daily mile.
