Welcome to Oak!

We have been really busy throughout our topic of “Marvellous Me” learning all about ourselves, our bodies, our families and our five senses. We had lots of fun using our sense of smell to try and work out what was inside the smelly pots as well as making popcorn.
During ILC Day the children produced some fantastic projects based on our school values and took turns to share them with the class. The projects were imaginative and it was great to see how proud all the children were of the work they had done.
In number we have been doing ‘careful counting’, matching numerals to objects, ordering monsters by size and measuring and comparing objects. In our phonics sessions, we have been practising our listening skills, recognising and distinguishing between different sounds and have been looking at rhyming words and initial sounds.
The children have really enjoyed exploring different ways of moving around the hall during P.E. and travelling across the benches.
We are currently looking at the story of ‘The Little Red Hen’ and the children have been re-enacting the story using the props in the role play area and have produced some super story maps.
Over the next couple weeks we will be thinking about the changes happening around us and talking about Autumn and will be learning about Diwali.
These are just a few highlights. We look forward to filling you in on what else we get up to over the next term!

Note to parent:
We have spoken to the children about bringing in toys from home… they should not bring in toys from home other than a small soft toy as a comforter, if needed. These soft toys will then be put into a basket and kept safe until lunchtime when they can have the choice to take them out during lunchtime play and then returned at home time. Any queries please ask
