Oak Class - Geographical Enquiry - Devon
Is Devon better than the rest? Oak Class started by thinking about the things that make Devon attractive before asking big questions that linked to the theme such as: What is keeping you in Devon?; Can Devon look after itself? and Why do you live in Devon?
Oak Class - World Travel
In this geography unit we explored how climates around the world have similarities and differences and why this may be. We also explored how biomes are affected by human activity and considered what can be done to limit the damage in the future. This unit concluded with a visit to the Eden Project to immerse ourselves in two biomes that we wouldn't otherwise be able to visit without actually traveling around the world!
Oak Class - Hola Mexico
In Oak Class, the children used their creative skills to make 3D sculptures of Mexico. They had great fun and linked their geographical knowledge of Mexico to support their designs.

In this history unit Oak Class looked at the impact Alan Turing had on the Second World War and subsequently the world. To ensure they had the relevant knowledge to answer the 'big question' they needed to break their learning into smaller steps- have a look at the cover page below to see how they did this.

Oak Class were given a challenge of finding out something about WWII and communicating the information they had found in a way of our choosing. Have a look below at what we came up with!
