Oak Class



Oak class is a great place to be, with lots of learning opportunities and nice things to do!


Welcome to the Oak Class page.


                                                  Sharing, Helping and Caring Hands


Welcome back, we all hope you had a happy and restful Christmas and New Year. We have an exciting few months learning about some of our favourite topics. The children are already enjoying practising their circus Skills in the two Big Tops in the Classroom and outside

The Themes for this half term are


Weeks 1  and 2     -   Circus

Week   3  and 4     -   People who help us        

Weeks 5  and 6     -   Dinosaurs


Please let us know if you can come in and talk about your job during our People who help us Topic, especially if it involves helping others.


Parents coming into school

This term we like like to encourage parents to come into school to see how we work in Oak Class and what your child does. This will be on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 9am until 10.15am. We will put a sign up sheet outside on Monday 8th January.


Show and Tell will be on Thursdays, it is really nice to see the children sharing their own work and experiences with the rest of the class. If your child forgets to bring anything, please do not worry as we like to encourage them to share with the other children exciting news they may have.  Please can Show andTell be just one thing, and not too big ( preferably to fit in bookbags)


In anticipation of colder weather, can all children bring a coat in everyday. Can all children be encouraged at home to practise doing up their own zips. We do like to be outside as much as possible whatever the weather. Could you also bring in a named pair of wellies that can be left at school.
