World Maths Day 23/3/22
Today is World Maths Day.
Below are some ideas of activities you can do at home with your child.

Sylvia Pankhurst recruited Oak Class to join the Suffragette rally! We protested for right for women to vote!
DEEDS NOT WORDS
We also learnt about key people in the Suffragette movement including the leader Emmeline Pankhurst.
Our topic for this half term is all about 'The Suffragettes'.
Please find a copy of our knowledge organiser below which explains what we will be learning about:)
In Oak class we have been participating in our schools weekly mile challenge! What a great way to help us keep fit and healthy
The children had a very enjoyable day, as they were introduced to our new topic for this half term through a chocolate tasting session. They each got to taste a range of different chocolates and had to describe them by considering their taste, texture and appearance. They then had to give them an overall score out of 10. Some chocolates went down better than others - what do you think we thought of the dark chocolate?
Oak class are very excited about their new topic - Chocolate!
Please find below our chocolate knowledge organiser which shows what we are going to be learning about this half term.
Oak class had an exciting workshop from ‘Mad Science’ exploring electricity. Almost all the children want a plasma lamp for Christmas!
We are so proud of this one - winning 2 medals for gymnastics! Well done!
Oak class have had a busy writing week:)
We have written diary entries about our escape from Pompeii when the mighty volcano Mount Vesuvius erupted!
Edible Roman Roads!
To help us to understand exactly how the Romans constructed roads, we used edible materials to make our own Roman roads.
Firstly, we used a container to represent the ditch and large biscuits which we used for the large stones that we placed in the ditch.
Next we put a layer of crushed cornflakes to represent the layer of sand and pebbles used by the Romans. Custard came next as the cement!
Finally, we used custard cream biscuits to make a flat surface to represent the flat paving stones.
Unlike the real Roman roads, we could then eat ours!
Another fantastic week in Oak class!
