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


A very big welcome to all the new children and parents to Oak Class. The children have all started to settle in and get used to all the new experiences of a new school. This page will be updated every 2 weeks to give you details of the activities the children will be doing and any news we wish to share with you.


We are very pleased with how independant the children have become in such a short space of time, and now that they all understand the morning routine when they come into school, we would like the children to now come in the main school door by themselves. This door  is in the right hand corner of the playground next to Elm Class ( just follow all the other children).  A School member of staff and an Oak Class member of staff will be at the door to greet you. Parents are asked not to come down the corridor with their child as this can become very crowded with all the children using this door. We will also be in the Oak Class cloakroom to help children if needed. If you have any messages about who is picking up your child,  please use the red home school book to let us know. We are always available after school  to discuss any other matters should you wish.



The Themes for this half term are


Weeks 1 and 2 - Settling in and Myself

Week   3           - Colours

Weeks 4 and 5 -Autumn and Harvest

Weeks 6 and 7 -Looking After Pets


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.
