I am extremely proud of every member of Oak class, you all coped magnificently with online learning and then coming back into school. It didn’t seem to phase anybody.
Welcome back to Oak class for what I hope will be a term full of surprises and challenges. This term is always very busy and I will be expecting everyone to be ready to get straight back into learning and pushing themselves.
In Year 1 Maths we are going to be learning about Multiplication, Division, fractions and position and direction and in Year 2 we will be learning all about different types of measurement, position and direction and time. In Literacy to start with we are going to be writing newspaper reports as well as writing portal stories.
Our creative curriculum is being led this term through a range of questions and in each of the different areas we will be trying to answer these questions. In History – Is the King more important than the queen? Science – Do animals need a calendar? Geography – How is the UK like a puzzle? Art – What would a day in London look like for Paddington Bear? And in DT – What meal would be fit for a queen?
PE will be taught by Miss Woollatt and Mr Hopkinson on a Thursday morning, so please remember to send children dressed in their PE kits, and their school uniform in a bag ready to change into.
Forest Schools will also be continuing on a Friday morning, so please send children in dressed appropriately in old clothes and shoes/wellies
which are suitable for the weather, and again send their uniform in a bag ready for them to get changed for the afternoon session.
I am ever hopeful that the weather will start to get warmer and the sun will start to shine, so it is more important than ever to have a bottle in school at all times. Please put suntan lotion on before school if possible on the nice days, as if they have to put it on during school they will miss their play and lunchtimes. A sun hat is also key for the warmer days.
Reading folders should be filled in and sent back on a Monday each week, so we can fill in their reading trees. Oak class are amazing readers and this is because they read so much at home as well as in school. It is a really vital skill which in turn improves their writing ability.
Any questions please catch me at the end of the day on a Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday or send me an email on firstname.lastname@example.org
