Welcome to Oak!

Before we broke up for the Christmas holidays the children were very lucky to have a visit from Tom the Wildlife Man. After listening to him talk about the different species of animals he had with him, the children had the opportunity to have a closer look and some were even brave enough to touch or hold them.
We also had a visit from some of the local police officers, who were kind enough to spare some time to talk to the children about their job role and answer any questions. The children were allowed to try on police helmets, sit in the back of the police van and take turns to turn on the siren (which they all loved doing!).
Since returning from the Christmas break the children have been thrown into ‘Handa’s Surprise’, which is our topic focus this half of the term. The children have been learning the story in preparation to write their own version and have been participating in a range of activities linked to the story. They recently tried some of the fruit from the story and had to vote which was their favourite and create their own block graph and tally chart depicting the class results. They have also created their own story maps based on the original story and have been learning all about the different animals from the book.
In phonics we have finished looking at all our phase 2 sounds and are in the middle of learning our phase 3 sounds. The children have been applying their phonic knowledge to write words and simple sentences and we have been looking at the next set of ‘tricky’ words.
Thank you for visiting our page. Come back soon!
