Welcome to Oak!

From Miss Mulholland, Miss Hudson and Mrs Elderfield


10th November 2019


Last half term the children had lots of fun on our autumn walk around the school grounds; they were encouraged to use their different senses when exploring their environment and had to complete an autumn checklist.

We also enjoyed participating in a range of Halloween themed activities including making potions as part of our capacity lesson and creating 2D witches. We demonstrated good sharing by sharing out vegetables between Winnie the Witch and her rabbit friend and exercised our finger muscles engaging in lots of fine motor activities based around our topic.

For Harvest the children brought in their vegetables ready to make their class soup. They demonstrated careful cutting when cutting their vegetables and discussed the importance of being careful with knives and about why we need to wash our hands before handling food. Once the soup was made, the children were encouraged to be brave eaters and try the soup.

In phonics the children have been learning their Phase 2 sounds and have been practising blending and segmenting sounds. We have also been looking daily at our ‘tricky’ words and have been reading big books on the Interactive Whiteboard as part of our whole class guided reading sessions. In number and shape, space and measure, apart from looking at sharing, capacity and 2D shapes, we have also been familiarising ourselves with our numbers to 20; recognising them and ordering them, as well as looking at one more and one less.


This term we will be focusing our learning around the Three Little Pigs story.

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.
