Welcome to Oak Class!
An Oak tree is a sign of strength and wisdom. They grow tall and strong with many branches, all making their own pathway. We are very much looking forward to welcoming Oak class into school and can't wait to see all their personalities flourish and achievements soar.

LO: to investigate typing terminology
LO: to apply typing terminology
In today's Computing lesson, we started to learn how to touch type. We explored what the names of our fingers are called as well as where the top, bottom and home row keys are located on the keyboard.
The children played different games to get them to practise where to place their hands correctly in order to learn how to touch type.
Dr Head has had a little visitor!
British Science Week
8th-12th March 2021
Last week we had British Science week - take a look at what we got up to during the week!
Is it a....herbivore, carnivore or an omnivore?
During this lesson, we explored what a carnivore, herbivore and an omnivore eats and what types of animals fall into the category.
We went outside as a whole class and categorised each animal.
It's beginning to look a lot like...
The Christmas tree has arrived in Oak class and we are very excited! We also have a new advent calendar in the form of a beautiful wooden tree.
Just a reminder that it's non-uniform tomorrow (Friday 13th November 2020).
Please can you send your child in with £1.
Maths - LO: to estimate answers
12th November 2020
In Maths, we are starting to look at how we can estimate answers by finding a near number. We investigated the rule of rounding - that if the number is between 0-4 we round down and if it is between 5-9 we round up.
This is a new concept for the children and they all worked really hard to work out each near number.
11th November 2020
As it was Remembrance Day today, we held a 2 minutes silence to remember those who had fallen during WW1. We made two poppy wreaths by cutting our handprints and making poppies out of napkins.
On the 11th hour, of the 11th day, of the 11th month, we will remember them.

LO: to explore famous cave
Today we explored cave paintings that were created during 'The Stone Age'. We discussed what pictures were shown, the colours used and how they made them. We then created a stone backdrop for our very own cave paintings!
Pumpkins and Scarecrows
23rd October 2020
The children celebrated Harvest and Autumn by making their own mini scarecrows. We used a mixture of materials and they all designed their own. We talked about why scarecrows are used and where you might find one.
To finish our display, we paired them with our two pumpkins!
