Welcome to Oak Class. 

As a younger transitional year group we have fun learning through our termly themes across all areas of the curriculum (see the overview attached for our topic headings throughout the year)

We balance learning through practical activities and small focused adult lead groups; progressing gradually towards whole class learning sessions as the academic year goes on. We encourage collaboration and learning together through play in afternoon sessions and enjoy learning outdoors in our developing Year 1 outside areas. 


Please also see below:

  • a timetable of how our day runs. 
  • our most recent "Oak Class News Letter" 
  • a guide to Year 1 home learning
