OAK CLASS Curriculum Letter Spring 2022 


Dear Parents/Carers, 

Welcome back to what will hopefully be an exciting, happy and productive year. We have a change in staff in Oak Class: Mrs Bestwick will continue to teach the class on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesday mornings and Miss Jean Pavitt will teach on Thursdays and Fridays. Mrs Fiddler will teach French on Wednesday afternoons and Mr Collinge will teach PE on Wednesday afternoons. 

Please see the topic web for the work we will be covering during this half term.  


For reading, we will continue to use Accelerated Reader (AR), which assesses reading levels through vocabulary and comprehension. From your child’s result, we help them choose a book at an appropriate level which they can get from the library. We would like you to continue listening to your child read in line with our homework policy (at least 15 minutes a day). Once they have read the book, they complete a comprehension quiz in school. Please ensure your child brings his or her reading book and reading diary to school every day. 

Times Table Rockstars and Spelling Shed will be set every week. The children will also have either English or Maths homework which will be given to them on Fridays and is due back on Wednesdays. Quest work will be given once a half term and the children will have longer to complete this. 



This will continue to be on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. 

We’ll also be going swimming every afternoon for the week beginning the 17th January. 


We are really looking forward to a happy and hard working half term. Please email the office if you have any questions, or come and speak to us after school. 



With our best wishes, 


Lorraine Bestwick and Jean Pavitt
