Welcome back and Happy New Year! We are SO impressed with our superstars in Oak, who have come back ready to learn and coped so well with a fuller timetable. You will find the new optional homework grid in your child's diary. This week we've had lots of fun learning teen number words and reading 'Eat your Peas' by Kes Gray and Nick Sharratt, focusing on use of adjectives to describe food. The children particularly enjoyed deciding what it would take to persuade them to eat something they don't like, as well as how they would persuade their grown ups! There are some links below for you to try out relating to this week's topics.
Happy holidays, Happy Christmas! Thanks for all your support this term and have a lovely break. We hope you enjoy the cards and calendars, see you Tuesday 7th January.
15.12.19 Oak Class had lots of fun this week, thank you to everyone who was able to come to the performance. Don't forget party clothes in a labelled bag tomorrow please.
15.12.19 Well done to Year 1 who were amazing in the show!
Please send in costumes for the production asap (by Weds 4/12), as per the slips previously sent home which detail what is needed and whether school are providing it. We have tried to keep them as simple as possible, but please do come and speak to us if there are any issues or questions. We would love for the children to take a little bit of time this weekend to practise the songs on the main Year 1 page. They also have some great dance moves they could show you! Have a great weekend.
Christmas production rehearsals are going really well, thank you for practicing at home and keep up the great work!
This week we made rain gauges which finally collected some water on Friday! We learnt about making it a fair test. We've also been busy publishing our poems, look out for our work which will soon be displayed on our writing wall in class.
Welcome back, we hope you all had a great half term. We've been busy having parties and learning some tennis skills already, there are some free sessions at the tennis centre this weekend (see below).
We had so much fun at our tennis trial session today!
We've been busy learning about rhyming words and addition number sentences this week. Have a fantastic half term Oak class! See you all Monday 4th November 🙂
WC 7/10/19 Great to see so many of you at Parents' Eve and reading morning, thank you. Here's a few highlights from this week. We also had great fun making soup with a special chef visitor!
WC 30/9/19 We had lots of fun and learnt about our local area on our walk this week. Thank you to the parent helpers.
PARENTS' EVENING REMINDER- Monday 7th October and Wednesday 9th October
We look forward to talking to you about how your children have settled in next week. The booking system closes tomorrow lunchtime (30/9 12pm), so please do book an appointment if you haven't yet done so. Thank you
Thanks for your great attendance at reading morning and for those who are able to help on the walk next week. You will have noticed there is an optional homework grid in your child's reading diary as well as a list of Y1 statutory spellings for you to work on at home. We will also be doing spelling work through phonics, but your support is much appreciated. Please sign your child's reading diary and read 3+ times a week as this will really benefit their progress. Feel free to read/record other texts/activities from home. Below are some pictures of what we've been up to this week in Oak.
