Welcome to the class page for Oak Class!
Over the coming weeks we will be writing to tell you all about our class and all the exciting learning opportunities that we will experience. You will be able to see pictures of us participating in lessons, events and school trips.
We are a very enthusiastic, hard working and fun loving class! We enjoy each day learning and communicating with our friends. We are lucky to have a Learning Support Assistant called Miss Parkin (Monday PM, Tuesday AM, Wednesday PM, Thursday AM and Friday at different times throughout the day) and Mrs K is a Special Learning Support Assistant who also helps children in our class. We enjoy extra help from parents or grandparents who may wish to come in and help during Arts Week and on school trips.
Our PE lessons are on Tuesday afternoon (games) and on Wednesday afternoon (dance). Please can you help us to keep our belongings safe by putting our names on all our clothes!
On Thursday afternoons we visit the Library where we have the opportunity to choose a book to borrow for a week. On Tuesday afternoon we learn French! This term we are learning the French vocabulary for colours and members of our family. We will also be learning to count in French up to 100 during Year 1.
We visit the Cocoa Pod on Tuesday and Friday. We are learning to draw, add text, animate and add sound to our work. Sometimes we use Computing to enhance our learning in a cross curricular way. We love it in the Cocoa Pod!
In our English lessons this half-term, we are learning about familiar stories with repeating patterns, poetry, non-fiction books, instructions and recounts. We will experience Drama to develop our Speaking and Listening skills and experience innovative learning in preparation for writing. In Maths we are learning our number bonds to 10 and beyond, simple addition and subtraction, the properties of shape, time, money and measures. In Geography we are learning about our local area and soon we are going to develop our map reading skills. In Science we are learning about Animals including Humans and in Art we are learning about Materials and trying the skill of weaving.
We work so hard all week that Friday afternoon is Golden Time! We all choose an activity and have the chance to play with our friends.
We will be shortly be visiting Milestones Museum of Living History. If any parents wish to join us for a day out, please contact us!
We hope that you enjoy reading all about us... Abientôt!
