Welcome to Oak Class
The oak tree is a symbol of strength, resistance and knowledge. It is also recognised for its size and stature which is associated with honor and wisdom.
The little acorn needs patience, time and room to grow, much like the children in the class.
Miss Greenwood and I can't wait to see how the children grow and learn over the next year, much like our Oak tree.

In Science, we have been classifying rocks by exploring each rock type and its properties. We know there are igneous, metamorphic and sedimentary rocks and how they are formed. Today, we wanted to explore whether the rock would crumble when sandpaper is rubbed over the rock, whether the rock is tough enough to withstand scratches from a nail and if the rock was permeable. We went outside to conduct our experiments!
Computing - LO: to use timers
29th September 2021
In computing, we have been using timers when coding. The children have created their own backgrounds and placed characters within the setting. They then used actions, speech and timers to code their own programme.
