Welcome to Red Oaks!
Welcome back! 
This year, I (Miss Laskowski) will be teaching you and we will be supported by the lovely Mrs Moss. 
 
During our first term, we will be focusing on Science - learning all about different animals, their habitats, plants and the way in which humans develop. 
 
In maths, we will be learning all about numbers up to 1,000,000!!
 
In our english lessons, we're going to be reading the book 'Black and White' by David Macaulay and we will be writing a narrative based on one of the short stories.
 
Our PE days will be on a Monday and a Wednesday this half term. Please make sure you wear your school PE kit into school on these days and bring in your school jumper.
 
UPDATE - children will NOT need to wear their PE kits into school this week. We will be starting PE on Monday 13th September.
 
We are looking forward to growing together and seeing where our learning takes us this year!
