Welcome to Oak!
From Miss Mulholland, Miss Hudson and Mr Taylor.
5th October 2018
The children have been fantastic at coming in in the mornings and getting on with their morning fine motor jobs. They are working well with their groups and engaging with the activities. We are all very proud of them!
Everyone did a great job at sharing their ‘All About Me’ boxes with the rest of the class. They were all really brave and did well with answering questions about their chosen items.
Also, well done to everyone for their ‘K for Knowledge’ projects, they clearly worked very hard on them.
As part of our ‘Marvellous Me’ topic this half term, we have been looking at our families, people who help us and their roles as well as our bodies and senses. The children did a great job at helping Miss Mulholland label the human body and enjoyed learning about what some of our body parts do. We had lots of fun using our sense of smell to try and work out what was inside the smelly pots – most of the children correctly identified garlic! The children also enjoyed using their senses to explore the different items on our investigation table including herbs, bubble wrap, rocks and some musical instruments.
In P.E we have been looking at different ways of travelling and how to negotiate space successfully. We have explored ways to travel across equipment, including benches and we will soon be doing some partner work.
In phonics we have almost visited all of our Phase 2 sounds. The children have been doing a great job at remembering their sounds and actions - well done!
In number we have been doing ‘careful counting’, matching numerals to objects and ordering numbers. The children also measured and compared the length of their feet, using cubes.
Over the next couple weeks we will be thinking about the changes happening around us and will be going on an autumn walk around the school surroundings. We will also be looking closely at the story of ‘The Little Red Hen’. The children will be encouraged to re-tell the story using actions and then act it out in small groups. Following on from this we hope to create some story maps.
Thank you for visiting our class page! Come back soon!

Throughout the year in Saplings there are occasions when we offer the children small amounts of a variety of foods to taste, to fit in with our current topic. We are aware of dietary requirements already supplied, should there be any changes, please inform the school office and we will take note of this when providing food to your child.
