Hello and Welcome to Oak class 2017-18.

I hope you have had a lovely Summer Holiday, and have made lots of new memories to cherish. With lots of new faces in Oak class this year our Creative Curriculum this term is called ‘All About Me’. This means that most of our subjects will evolve around this general theme.

In Literacy we will be learning to write sentences about ourselves, our families and our bodies. We will be concentrating on using the correct punctuation and creating exciting sentences using a range of vocabulary. In Maths, we will be working hard on Place Value. In History, we will be finding out what a family tree is and then creating our own family tree. In Design and Technology and Art we will be making frames to put special family photos in and hopefully getting our hands on some clay and creating a self-portrait. In Science we will be identifying parts of our body and how they are connected.

In Oak class this year, we are very lucky because Mrs Gladwin our language instructor is going to come in on a Monday afternoon and teach us a wide range of languages from Italian to Chinese.

On a Tuesday afternoon, we have PE with Mrs A Tilley; please can you provide a full PE kit with suitable outdoor shoes. If your child has long hair then this needs to be tied back every day and especially for PE. Please bring their PE kit (fully named) in and then we will leave it at school for a half term. We will send their PE kit home if it gets wet or muddy.

Your child will have homework sent home most weeks on a Tuesday. They will always have a week to complete their homework, but please remember in Oak class a child should only be doing homework for up to 10 minutes every evening and this does include them reading to you.

Please try and send their signed diary and reading books in everyday so that we can communicate and hear them read on a regular basis. Water bottles also need to be in school every day clearly labelled with your child’s name.

Mrs Claire Tilley

We have been learning to sign our names in British Sign Language, because this week is International Deaf Week.
