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.


We are now in the second week of the last half of the Summer Term, and what a busy half term we have planned.  We have started our Under the Sea Topic, the children have especially enjoyed playing in our Yellow Submarine in the outside classroom. We have been learning about all of the different sea creatures that live under the sea, and have made paperplate fish, jelly fish, and today we have been making clay fish.

On 8th June  we  had our own Oak Class Election, where the children voted for their favourite fruit, it was a draw between strawberries and apples!  

We would like to say a special thank you to Mrs Lynch who spent a very wet afternoon helping us with our vegetable garden, we are now growing beans, courgettes, tomatoes and radishes.


Cake sale - 16/6

Class trip - Stoke Bruerne Canal Museum on 28/6.

Transition Day to Year 1 - 6/7

Sports Day - 14/7

Open Afternoon - 17/7


Show and Tell will continue on Thursdays, it is really nice to see the children sharing their own work and experiences with the rest of the class.

In anticipation of Summer,and warmer weather, can all children bring a sun hat and wear suncream everyday. A light raincoat that the children could keep at school is advisable as  we do like to be outside as much as possible whatever the weather.
