End of term

How is it possible that we are at the end of term already!  It has been an extremely busy (if slightly different) one for all in Oak class.  We couldn’t be more proud of how the children have settled in and the things they are achieving already.  Our final reader of the week was so excited to take home her book and hot chocolate!  We have so many children now reading at least 5 times per week, keep it up!!


Happy half term

Reader of the week

A big well done to our Reader of the Week for last week.  I am so glad you enjoyed sharing the story book and the hot chocolate.

Last week in Oak class we began our Autumn topic, kicking off with a breezy walk in the school grounds to collect leaves.  We then began reading the story Leaf Man and enjoyed thinking of new and exciting vocabulary to describe how he looks and how he might be feeling.  I am looking forward to sharing our own version of the story with you …

Maths this week has been all about patterns and repeating patterns.  We have been looking at animal patterns and patterns in the environment before moving on to repeating patterns.  The children have been super busy continuing ready made patterns and attempting to make some of their own.


Our week

Wow!  What another busy week it has been!We were so excited to find out who our reader of the week was today.  Well done Aurora for reading at least five times at home.  We hope you enjoy the hot chocolate!

In class we have been reading the Owl Babies and joining in with the repeated refrains.  We made our own shape owls and particularly enjoyed using the googly eyes!

We learnt more new sounds and have been practising these every day during our phonics sessions.  We continued to work on number recognition and counting groups of objects accurately.
