Welcome to Oak!

Since returning from half term we have been very busy! The first week back was particularly busy with Odds Farm, Sports Day and we also started swimming. The children had lots of fun at the farm meeting and feeding the animals and having a ride on the tractor and were very well behaved.
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.
Topic wise we have been looking at ‘Under the Sea’ and ‘Water’; the children particularly loved Pirate week. In literacy we have been focusing on using adjectives and connectives to extend our writing and make it more interesting and we have also started looking at writing stories. As a class we created a pirate themed story map and then the children used their imaginations to think of their own. Some of the children then transformed their ideas into a piece of writing.
In numbers we have been solving number problems using gold coins and treasure chests including addition, subtraction, doubling and halving and we have also been focusing on 1 more or less than a teen number.
We have been experimenting with water, looking at different processes such as freezing and melting and recently did an experiment with ice-lollies, which the children were very excited about, even though they couldn’t eat them!
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!
