Welcome to Mighty Oaks
Our teachers are Mrs James and Mr Williams. We are supported by Ms Hoadley.
We believe that working cooperatively with others is the key to learning. We always aim high but also know that making mistakes is sometimes the best way to move forward. Our class environment is one that promotes fun, kindness and team spirit and we like nothing more than a challenge.
We are very excited to see where our learning will take us this year: meeting the Anglo-Saxons and the Vikings; exploring the circulatory and respiratory system; learning all about Darwin and evolution as well as discovering what life was like for an Ancient Mayan. Who knows where we may end up!
Please see the curriculum overview attached to find out what we are learning.
Reading - Children should read at home for 30 minutes daily as part of their homework.
Maths fluency- Children have a weekly arithmetic or times tables focus which is rehearsed each day in school and quizzed on a Friday. Children can practice maths fluency on TTRockstars.
Spelling - children have a list of spellings to learn at home each week. We rehearse these in school each day and quiz on them on Fridays.
