Oak Class


Welcome back for the first part of the summer term, which promises to be another busy few weeks, full of new opportunities for the children. Much of our learning will be based around ‘people who help us’, and will include a visit from a Fire Officer, establishing new role play areas in our classroom, including a doctor’s surgery and a food bank, and will provide meaningful links with how we can be safe and healthy.

In our literacy learning, we will be sharing a traditional Chinese tale, The Magic Paintbrush by Julia Donaldson, the moral of which is well suited to our topic this term. This story will also provide a context for our designing and making mini topic, in which the children will be introduced to the work of Monami Ohno, a contemporary Japanese artist who works in cardboard.

In maths, the children will be developing their confidence with counting strategies, deepening their understanding of parts of a whole number by representing them on their hands, the tens frame, and dice diagrams, and exploring and comparing length and height.

We will be learning about the Ascension and Pentecost during our RE lessons, and also learning how the parish is a family and a community.

Our PE lessons will continue to take place on a Monday and a Thursday, so please send your child to school dressed in their PE clothes and footwear on these days.

Please continue to help your child with their reading, by sharing a few pages of their reading book with them each evening, and by sending their book bag into school with them each day. Your continued support with this is much appreciated.
