Welcome to Oak!
This half term’s theme is ‘Let’s Celebrate’. We will be finding out about different traditions and customs and ways in which these are celebrated. We have already found out about Diwali, we listened to the story of Rama and Sita and made Diwali lamps from clay.
Halloween was a fun time in class we cut open a pumpkin, apple printed mini pumpkins and used water colour paint to create witches on broomsticks.
Our Talk for Writing text is Room on the Broom written by Julia Donaldsn, already the children have begun adding actions to the story to help them re-tell it.
The children are working really hard at reading their tricky words so we are going to give them the challenge of spelling them too!
We are extremely pleased and proud with this class’ efforts and look forward to another productive and enjoyable term together!
What a fantastic start to the new school year we've had! We have been busy making new friends and settling into our new environment. We have explored our inside and outside areas and have even attended two whole school assemblies! We were extremely proud to have won the 'Best Attendance Award' TWICE!
We are still working hard at writing our name with the correct letter formation, forming numbers correctly and learning new sounds. To help us strengthen our pencil grip we get funky at the 'Dough Disco' at least three times a week.
Our class theme this half term is 'Marvellous Me' and we are really enjoying talking about our likes, dislikes, similarities and differences.
We have also learnt the Owl Babies story using the 'Talk for Writing' approach which involves us re-telling the story, using props and actions.
We have an exciting journey together ahead of us.
