Welcome to Oak!

I can’t believe it is that time of year again! We are almost at the end of the summer term but before we go, we wanted to share with you some of the exciting things that Oak class have been getting up to over the last few weeks.
We went on our first outing to the Pirate Park, which the children were VERY excited about. I must say I was incredibly proud of them all; they were all so well-behaved and enthusiastic about the day. We spent some time in the park itself and then went on a scavenger hunt around the grounds, on the search for characters from the Jack and the Beanstalk story, which we have been looking at as part of our Pie unit this term.
As well as our exciting trip to the park, we also were very lucky to be given some caterpillars, which we watched grow and transform into beautiful butterflies. The children kept a close eye on them and drew pictures of them for their Butterfly Diary. We then released them into the wild when they were ready. Fortunately we were able to capture a few photos of the butterflies with some of the children before they fluttered away.
In maths, we have been learning about measure including height, length, width and capacity and we are currently looking at 3D shapes. The children had lots of fun making potions when exploring capacity and enjoyed coming up with their own recipes.
In PE we have playing lots of team games in preparation for our upcoming Sports Day and talking about the importance of supporting one another and working together as a team. The children have also had the opportunity to play football with our external football coaches as an extra PE session each week, which they have all really enjoyed.
No one can believe that we are nearly at the end of the school year. It has been a very different kind of year but we are all so proud of the children, with their resilience and with how well they have coped and adapted to change. It has been a pleasure seeing them grow as individuals and as a class and we wish them all the best as they transition into year 1. Thank you to all the parents too for all your support during lockdown and for doing such a great job with their home learning.
Well done Oak class, you have been great! We all wish you a lovely summer break!

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.
