Hello and Happy Friday to you all!
What a great week you have had - we have been sent lots of great work and have been very happy to share a lot of it on our class page.
I hope that you have all learnt your spellings - this week's test can be found below.
At the bottom of this message are this week's spellings to learn - they are some Year 7 words to challenge you again. If you don't know any of them, do look them up in a dictionary. It is a great way of expanding your vocabulary and will help you improve your writing.
Please check in on Monday morning for next week's lessons. Can you believe that it is only one more week until half-term?
Have a lovely weekend everyone.

I have added some more photos and pieces of work which I thought you would enjoy seeing. Remember to keep sending in your learning and let us know if you would like anything in particular sharing.
We have just heard about a great new 'Young Voices' project where thousands of children in the UK and the USA will be singing together online on Tuesday 2nd June. I know that many of you have been involved in Young Voices before and if you would like to sign up for this virtual sing-along, you can find all the details here https://www.youngvoices.co.uk/powerinme
Have a good Thursday.

Good morning Oak class - I hope you all had a good weekend and enjoyed celebrating VE day. The weather was certainly beautiful although it's freezing this morning!
I realised when I was looking at our learning for the week that if we had been in school it would have been the first day of SATS tests today and Mr File and I would have been making you breakfast every day!
As Mrs Godden has said below, we set you learning to carry over two weeks as we had the Bank Holiday.
You have your artwork linked to your projects and the writing task to do from me, and the science work can also be continued or you can catch up with any you haven't completed yet.
Please send me any finished work. If you haven't been in touch for a while send us an email to let us know how things are going.
If you listened to Boris Johnson's speech last night you will know that he mentioned that Year 6 MAY be one of the first to go back to school. We don't have any details yet on how that will work and how we keep you safe, but as soon as we do I'm sure Mr File will let your parents know how it is going to work for you all.
Meanwhile, stay safe, send us your work and keep in touch.

Hello Oak Class
We hope that you had a great weekend. What did you do to celebrate the 75th anniversary of VE Day? I (Mrs Godden) walked to the village on Friday afternoon and saw lots of houses had been beautifully decorated for the occasion and that there were some fun street parties going on (with family groups keeping a safe distance, of course). Did you take part in one of them? Remember to send in any photos you took to Mr File and to us too, if you would like to share them on our class page.
As usual, please keep sending in your work for us to see and don't hesitate to contact us if you need any help at all.
Have a great week everyone and stay safe.
Mrs Short and Mrs Godden xx
Here are your lessons for this week:
Last week we set you some plans from Hamilton as well as a piece of writing for Mrs Short. Please try to complete both of these by the end of this week. Remember to send you finished letter to Mrs Short - she is looking forward to reading about your experiences of lockdown.
As with English, we set two weeks work last week - one set of Hamilton lessons and another set on White Rose Maths. Please refer back to last week's lessons for details of these. Remember that we would like your feedback about which you prefer - Hamilton or White Rose lessons.
This week is our last lesson on 'Salvation' and our LQ is How might believing in the resurrection of Jesus make a difference to how people live today? It will show me everything you have learnt during this unit and I am recommending that you ask an adult to discuss the ideas with you before your do and writing as we would normally have a long discussion in class before putting pen to paper. The resources for this lesson can be found below.
Please continue with and try to complete the HTML unit on Khan Academy. I can see that many of your are doing really well with it. If you haven't started yet, please try to spend some time on it this week. For those of you who finish the unit, please visit
https://projects.raspberrypi.org/en/codeclub/webdev-module-1 and choose the first html project - Happy Birthday - to complete. You should be able to save and send your Trinket file to me to look at.
Keep going with Duolingo please. You can also listen to and complete short listening comprehensions on Duolingo, which are fun to do. I cannot assign these to the class unfortunately, but if you want to try one, go to https://stories.duolingo.com/. Let me know if you like them.
Choose an activity on Charanga if you wish - full details of how to log in are given on the class page for the week beginning 27th April (look under the entry for Tuesday 28th April).
