Welcome to Oak!

Since returning from half term we have been very busy! Despite the rain we had great fun on our trip to Odds Farm, meeting and feeding the animals, exploring the soft play park and having a ride on the tractor. The children were extremely well behaved and patient considering the weather and were praised by all members of staff-well done Oak class!
The children showed off their sporting abilities when participating in a range of activities on Sports Day. They all took part and worked well in their teams.
Swimming lessons have started and all the children have been very excited. We also had ‘Dads into School’ day, which the children thoroughly enjoyed and it was lovely to see all the dads get stuck into the different activities. Thank you for coming, we really appreciate it.
We released our butterflies out on the field but not before taking some great photos of them and the children.
Topic wise we have been looking at ‘Under the Sea’ and ‘Water’. The children made pirate ships out of the junk modelling on ‘Dads into School’ day, which we tested; they had to predict whether or not they thought each model would float or sink and provide an explanation for their reasoning before testing. We have also been experimenting with water, looking at different processes such as freezing, which the children have really enjoyed and have shown a real interest in.
In literacy we have really encouraged the children to be brave writers and take on some writing challenges. They recently did some fantastic paired work where they had to create their own story map based on a pirate’s journey to find his treasure. This was a great opportunity to see the children work closely together and use their imaginations and transfer their ideas to paper.
In maths we have been focusing on 2D and 3D shapes and have been revisiting money and time.
No one can believe that we are nearly at the end of the school year - how time has flown! We are all so proud of the children and it has been a pleasure seeing them grow as individuals and as a class.
Well done Oak class, you have been great!
