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


We hope you have all had a restful half term. The children have all come back very excited about our Festival Topic where we have been learning about Diwali. We have made fireworks for Bonfire Night and pretended to cook on the bbq in the outside role play shed ready for the firework party.


Oak Class will be running a cake stall for Children in Need. Please see Gemma Marshall if you can provide cakes. Half the money raised will go to Children in Need and half will go to Oak Class to buy things we need. Details to follow


We are busy rehearsing our Christmas Play, which this year will be on Wednesday 13th  at 9.15 am.  More Details to follow.




The Themes for this half term are


Weeks 1                -   Festivals, Diwali, Halloween, Fireworks

Week   2  and 3     -   Fairytales  and Rememberance        

Weeks 4                -   Winter and Children in Need

Weeks 6 and 7      -   Christmas              


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.


In anticipation of colder weather, can all children bring a coat in everyday. 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.
