Coordinates practise!

Here is a link to a very challenging coordinates game. Start on the beginners level!

You can also find a hidden ships app, (not so hard) but there is a small charge for it. Top tip: if you do an internet search, the website version is free!

Practising following the script.

20.03.15 Oak literacy - play scripts

Today our literacy learning did't involve opening our exercise books! We spent the lesson reading through a play script. The clips might sound a little quiet, but the next couple of posts there will be some examples.

Oak Class wow words.

Mrs Rolls challenged the class to find unfamiliar words to look up in the dictionary during guided reading. We also searched for powerful verbs. Can you find more of these words in your reading book during the weekend?

Maths 13.03.15

Oak class tried pouring different quantities of liquid into a jug, before marking 0.25l, 0.5l and 0.75l on the scale of the jug. Later children helped to shade in the different amounts of liquid, and wrote in the corresponding fractions and decimals. Who can work out how much would be shaded for 0.1l?


Maths. Oak Class have been matching fractions to decimals, especially 0.25, 0.5, 0.75 and 1.0.
