Oak Class Newsletter


Welcome back,

First of all I would like to say well done to all children in Oak for having an excellent first half term in Year 1 and 2. We worked extremely hard, and completed lots of learning in a wide range of subjects. This next half term is going to be even busier, but I am sure the children in Oak will cope very well and excel.

In Numeracy we will be learning about addition and subtraction, shape and money. We will learn about these areas using White Rose Maths and complete as much as possible in an active and engaging learning style. In Literacy we will be writing different types of poems for Remembrance day and then moving on to learning what a recount is and then writing recounts of our time at Ringsfield Hall. When we get back from Ringsfield our focus will switch to speaking, listening and drama where we will throw ourselves into our Nativity rehearsals.

In History and Science we will carry on with space and find out all about Tim Peake and different materials. We will then compare the space journeys of Tim Peake and Neil Armstrong. In Art Mrs Nightingale will carry on with our colour chaos topic and move on from primary and secondary colours to looking out how to create shades and tints of different colours. In RE we will continue looking at Christianity.

In PE Oak class will be based at the field, so please provide warm clothes (tracksuit bottoms and jumpers), trainers and coats, as Mr Hopkinson will aim to be outside as often as possible. Mrs Gladwin will be teaching a wide range of languages this half term, and looking at the countries that speak these different languages.

Please make sure your child has a coat and warm weather accessories in every day, as we always try to get some fresh air daily. Your child needs to have a water bottle and their diary in every day as well as long hair tied back and fringes out of their eyes, as we find this helps them to concentrate more in class.

Our residential visit to Ringsfield Hall is fast approaching, please try and attend the parent meeting on Tuesday 30th October to ask any questions you may have.
