Oak 2022 - 2023
Welcome to Team Oak!
I am incredibly excited about working with you all this half term! I have have had pleasure of watching you develop from the beginning of your Kingsley journey in Reception and mature into incredible members of Team Oak.
We have lots of exciting things to look forward to this year! From Dragon's Den and trips to Tatton Park, to our residential to London and post SATs celebrations! It certainly will be a year to remember - both for its hard work and its fun!
The majority of our learning will focus around WW1 and WW2 this half term. We are looking at key aspects such as the role of women, evacuation, rationing and exploring how each war had an impact on where we live today.
- Monday (outdoor), Wednesday (indoor)
- Indoor kit: shorts, t-shirt, trainers, socks (if tights worn)
- Outdoor kit: navy/black joggers/ leggings, navy/ black jumper – or school jumper, t-shirt, trainers, socks (if tights worn)
- Please ensure children have their kit in school on these days and trainers in school throughout the week for the daily mile and ventures into Nature’s Nook.
- Please read at least three times a week at home. You will be bringing home Kingsley Journals; in here, this is where we will record all reading - from home and school
- Each week, we will be writing our weekly spellings in our Kingsley journals. We will not be testing on these spellings, but encourage you to practice them at home as they are linked to our writing in Literacy
- Spelling lessons focus on revising and developing our understanding of spelling rules
- Please practise your times tables on a frequent basis – they really are the underpinning for many of the maths we study!
- Times Tables Rockstars is still our main way of practising
- timestables.co.uk is another fantastic site – particularly for practising focus times tables
- Watch this space...maths and literacy focused homework will be coming soon!
- Regular reading - at the minimum 3 x a week
- Times tables practice
- Spelling revision
How you can help at home:
- Times tables practise
- Mental calculations – practising adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing mentally
- Practising multiplying and dividing by 10, 100, 1000 mentally
- Quick fire revision of fraction/ decimal/ percentage equivalences
- Practise measurement conversions – e.g. 1 litre = 1000ml, 1kg = 1000g, 1m = 100cm, 1cm = 10mm etc
- Telling the time – children need to be confident with this in order to access the more complex aspects of the curriculum for time for Y6. Children will be solving worded problems involving 12 and 24 hour, reading timetables, calculating time durations amongst other tricky things!
- Reading – encourage children to read aloud clearly, confidently with expression and intonation. Remind children to follow the punctuation when reading. Ask them questions to establish their understanding
- Spelling rule revision
- Vocabulary – expose your child to tricky and complex vocabulary. Encourage them to use strategies such as reading on in the sentence to try and establish their meaning
