Oak Class Remote Learning

Welcome to our Oak Class Remote Learning page!
 
I hope that you are all alright and keeping yourselves safe. 
 
On this page, you will find the learning to be completed each day. It is important that you complete all of the learning - just like you would if you were in school! When you need to write things down, please do so in your purple home learning book (or lined paper will do until you recieve it). Don't forget, I will still be looking for you to write the long date and take pride in your presentation. That includes lovely cursive handwriting, capital letters and full stops where you need them!
 
For some of your learning, you will be given the answers so you can purple pen on your own. There is some learning that you will need to send to me through the Messages tab on the VLE for some feedback - this will be signposted with
"Miss D-B wants to see!"
 
I can't wait to see what you get up to and I hope you enjoy our new topic Pond and Beyond. I am super excited about this topic and I think you will be too!
