Oak Class Newsletter


Welcome back,

What a busy first half term Oak class had. I hope you all enjoyed the Harvest Festival; the whole class enjoyed making the props for our lovely song and were very excited to perform it in front of their friends and family.

This half term is going to be extremely busy. In a week and a half we all go on our residential to Ringsfield Hall, which we are all very excited about. We are lucky because Mrs Nightingale has agreed to be our second adult. When we get back from our residential we will be straight into practicing our songs for our Christmas Nativity (all will be revealed soon).

In Literacy this half term, we will be using the book ‘Meerkat Mail’ to help us with our learning. We will be packing suitcases, writing postcards and finding out all about animals that live in different habitats. In Maths we will be recapping place value, delving deeper into adding and subtracting and the Year 2s will start learning all about multiplication and division. We will then also start learning about shapes and positional language.

In our afternoon topics our focus again will be on ‘All about me’ where we will look closer at family trees, and how our bodies grow and change. In PE the children will be outside learning the basics of Tag Rugby, so suitable PE kit and trainers will be needed, as well as a hair band to keep their hair out of the way.

If you have any questions you can catch me at the beginning or the end of each day or our first Parents evening is fast approaching and we can discuss anything then.

Mrs Claire Tilley
