Welcome to Oak Class
Oak class is made up of Year One and Year Two children and is currently taught by Mrs Edge.
Miss. McCarthy, Mrs. Davies, Miss. Roberts and Mrs. Owen are all part of the Oak class.
Oak classroom is bright and spacious with access to a great outdoor space. We want transition from the EYFS play based curriculum to Key Stage 1 to be stress free and happy for all children. Inside the classroom we have a cosy, quiet and well stocked book area, a designated writing and art table with lots of resources for the children to use and a role play area which the children prepare during the term. At the moment, our focus is “Superfit” so we are putting together a healthy cafe. There are computers and tablets within the classroom for children to use, as well as programmable toys. Outside there again is a reading area and the children are encouraged to take books out to enjoy, they can be shared on the seating or taken inside the house, there are lots of physical opportunities outside with bouncers, balls, hoops and even a seesaw. We also have a role play house outside and mud kitchen. We want to promote independence – children are encouraged to be active learners and have a positive ‘growth mindset’ approach. Challenges are set up based upon current learning themes for children to engage with and earn rewards.
Please continue to check out the class page which will be updated with all of our busy learning!
If you have any questions or concerns please speak to myself or a member of the Oak team.
Following our latest Ofsted inspection the school has created a new handwriting policy. We will be working closely with the children to ensure fine and gross motor movements are secure so handwriting can improve. For children in Year 1 their handwriting needs to be sitting on the line with tails and tall letters formed correctly, once this is secure the children will be introduced to adding ‘flicks’ to their letters ready for joining. In year 2 children should be joining their handwriting consistently by the start of Spring Term (January). Please continue with supporting your child with their handwriting at home during homework activities.
If you have any resources e.g. books, DVDs, photos or personal experiences which would link to the topics and benefit the children, we’d love to hear from you. Also, you would be most welcome to come in and help, regularly or occasionally.
In Oak Class we use Seesaw which is an online learning journal. Parents and relatives can have access to their child’s journal and see all of the amazing things we get up to in Oak Class.
Latest from Oak Class
Since September, we have been pleased to welcome back all children into school. Our remote learning platform, Seesaw is still used (although less, due to the children’s learning in class) – all codes have been sent out to those who have signed up. It is a super way of showcasing children’s work especially now that our parents unfortunately have limited access to school due to the current climate. Already it has been a great way to stay in touch! If you need anything at all please do not hesitate to contact me via email or Seesaw .
A busy half term is currently taking place based on “Superfit”. The children will be making food out of salt dough to fill the cafe! We are starting with Florence Nightingale and will continue our learning with Mary Seacole. We will make Scutari hospital, complete with rats!
