Welcome back to the Summer term in Oak Class. 


Our topic this term is "Castles!"  We are ready to see our amazing class back in again and really enjoying learning through this theme. 


We welcome Mrs Tooke officially to our teaching team and she is really looking forward to her mid-week days with Oak Class. 


During the Easter holidays we have had lots of fun ideas of how to take our learning outside the classroom and we understand that this class will need as much physical and social time as we can throughout the day ... we will be developing our outside classroom directly at the front of the school so it has different areas to encourage and scaffold collaborative learning through play. We hope the children will enjoy the changes so far...


Our reading race is well and truly back on and we urge all children to embrace and engage in some reading at home each night. They will receive a "Star Sticker" on their shining star on our class display for: reading at home, improving with their phonics and hfw and for individual efforts of other kinds. (The sticker allocation will be monitored throughout the week by checking reading journals) Whilst we will continue to encourage and ask children to change reading books each day  - it is largely up to them now to increase their independence by asking and handing books in when they need to change them! 


We will begin to send home and post (on SeeSaw) small pieces of homework to be completed weekly. These will mainly be reading and phonics related and occasionally linked to the maths learning that week. 


We are so pleased to be able to guide, nurture and enthuse this amazing Oak class through their last term in Year 1  - We look forward to seeing them grow and transform with their super resilience and adaptability - They make us very proud every day!
