Mrs Sharp

Hello, my name is Mrs Sharp and I cannot wait to meet you all!

I love to read, especially the Harry Potter books. I love story time  and always make sure we have time to listen to a story during the day.  I also do story assembly and I really enjoy reading to KS2.  

I love being outside, going on walks and exploring the countryside with my children. I also have a dog called Luna (named after Luna  Lovegood from Harry Potter!) We all go for walks together and love  spending time outside! 

My favourite subject is history. I absolutely love learning about new  periods of history with my class and I cannot wait to learn about  something new in September! 

I am so excited to meet you all! We are going to have a great year  together!

This year’s main topics:

Autumn Term
Here Come the Vikings! Who were the Vikings and why did they come to Britain? What was it like to be a Viking? How did they become so powerful? How do we know?
We’ll learn about settlements and why people travel from their homelands.
We will be finding out about the science of Sound and how we hear things.

Spring Term
In the Desert: What is a desert? Where in the world are the biggest deserts? How do plants, animals and people survive there? How have humans changed deserts? How can special places be protected?
In Science, we’ll be learning about living things and their habitats (especially deserts!). We’ll also investigate plants and how they grow.

Summer Term
We’ll Meet Again: What was it like to be a child during World War Two? Why were children evacuated? How did people on the Home Front help the war effort? Who was Anne Frank and why is she important?
Our Science this term will be about Light and dark, shadows, reflections and how we see things.

Class Information

The school day starts at 8:50am with the classroom doors opening at 8:45am. Registration is at 9:00am and learning starts immediately after. The school day ends at 3:05pm and children will need to be collected by an adult from the classroom door.

If you would like your child to be collected from school by someone other than yourself, a form will need to be filled in to advise school who your child/children can leave with. Forms are available from the office or from the classroom.

Please ensure your child has a water bottle to keep in the classroom. This can be taken home every day and filled with fresh water.

Reading books and reading journals will be sent home daily, and it would be beneficial if children read at least 3 times at home during each week. Reading diaries should be kept up to date with a brief comment.

PE kits are to be brought into school on a Monday and taken home on a Friday.

Homework will be set every Friday and should be returned by the following Wednesday.

Spellings will be sent home every Friday and we will work on them throughout the following week.

Meet Oak Class Staff
Miss Beaty (Teaching Assistant)

Hello, my name is Miss Beaty. 

I am very excited about seeing you all in your new classes in September!

Let me tell you a little bit about myself:  I enjoy going for walks, especially in the countryside where it’s nice and peaceful. I try and take lots of photographs to build up many memories.  I especially love walking in the rain (just so I get to put my wellies on and go through all the muddy puddles).

As I’m sure you already know, I just LOVE to be involved in anything creative, whether it be displays, doors, props for plays….the list goes on! So, as you can imagine I can’t wait to be involved in all your amazing, exciting topics when I come into your classrooms. Don’t forget though, if you’re doing art, make sure I’m around so I can join in.

Looking forward to seeing you all soon!
