Oak Class Home Learning Zone

Welcome to Oak class home learning page.  On this page we aim to signpost you to websites and we will be uploading daily slides to support your child’s learning journey as it continues at home.

Hello Oak Class

I hope you are all keeping well and had a lovely Easter weekend in the sunshine!

Now the ‘Easter holidays’ are over, we will be uploading a daily power point slide outlining your learning for the day. On these slides we have outlined some daily activities using a similar structure to that of a school day. This is not intended to be followed rigidly as we appreciate that there are lots of other things going on at home. Please try to do a few of these as and when you can. The power points will remain on the website, so you can access them when you need to.  Any additional resources will be clearly marked on the class web page.  The slides will contain links to other websites, so you must make sure the power point is in slideshow to allow these links to work.   I hope you enjoy your daily learning!

Have fun!

Mrs Millar

Remember activities such as reading and practising times tables will also be hugely beneficial for your child.  When writing, can you please encourage your child to think carefully about using a wide range of punctuation and uplevelling their vocabulary – this has been a big focus in school this term, and they have made fantastic progress with this.  I have listed below a range of websites which will help your child with their learning – they are full of good resources and will help to recap concepts.

Oak Class Evacuation!

On Thursday 31st October, Oak class went on an “Evacuee” themed trip to Buckfastleigh railway with Lady Modifords Y5/6. We looked at the wartime garden with its replica of an Anderson shelter. We also visited the war museum with old trains. Eventually, it was time to be evacuated. There were mixed emotions as we were waiting for the train. Finally, it was time to board the train on our journey to Totnes. On the train we ate our sandwiches and we played word games. When we arrived at Totnes, we had to wait for 15 minutes and we had a look at model trains on the platform. We then got back on the train ready for our return journey back to Buckfastleigh. We all had an amazing day and understood what it felt like to be real evacuees.

Our Victorian Experience!

Last Wednesday 9th October, Oak Class and Sheepstor Class went on a trip to the world famous copper mine, Morwellham Quay. This mine was one of the most important mines in the Victorian era, and for that reason it has been kept in the same condition as it was over a century ago. We got to experience four of the many amazing different activities, such as: The Victorian mine train, going into a Victorian school room, rock breaking and comparing domestic life in the Victorian era.

First we went on the mine train, and actually went into the mine that was used in the Victorian era by so many miners that risked their lives everyday. Then we had the chance to compare the rich house owned by the person that was in charge of most of the things that went on at Morwellham Quay and a simple miners house where we learnt that many of the mining families had to share the one cottage. After that we took a lesson in an old Victorian classroom and had to chant the words ‘Good, better, best, never let it rest, until my good is better, and my better best.’ Finally, we had a go at rock breaking where the adult miners would break up massive chunks of rock and would then give them to the children to break into smaller bits to find the golden copper that was inside.

Both classes enjoyed our time at Morwellham Quay and we learnt lots about the Victorian era.
