Our Senses - Oak Class

Also in week 3, we have been learning about our sense of touch and how to describe what things feel like. Here we are using our hands and feet on a sensory journey.

Our First Full Week by Oak Class

Reception stayed all day on Monday and felt so good about it they decided to stay all day for the rest of the week ! They even experienced a wet play on Thursday. Before it went all autumnal on Thursday the class got outside and went forest gazing. Put another way, we laid on our backs under trees and marvelled at the beauty of the green leaves as we looked skywards. I predict that next time we do this we find non-green leaves floating down towards us. We also found Oak trees. Delightfully, one of the children speculated, "Are the trees named after us ?" Some of us are continuing to write poetry about our senses and ourselves. I introduced some of the class to Boney Tony who was very interes

Monkey World Visitor

Yesterday, Year 6 were visited by Ali, the School Liaison Officer from Monkey World. She talked about the rescue work that goes on at Monkey World and which species they have at the park. As our topic this half term is The Rainforests, she also explained how humans are impacting tropical rainforests and how this affects the survival of many of the species at Monkey World. To thank Ali for her time, the children brought in donations for the primates. Ali was very grateful for everyone's generosity and she was impressed at how well the children took part in the session!

Week 2 - Oak Class

The second week completed already. It has been a great week with Miss Wells and Mrs Harris joining Oaks Class and the little ones staying for lunch for the first time. We also had sports coaches working with the older children for an afternoon this week. The Year Ones are getting back to the classroom routine they knew of old and some are clearly rising to the challenge. I have been composing and writing poetry with the Year Ones - an experience for all of us ! Having assessed the children post summer and post lockdown, we will be getting into the Read Write Inc groups next week. All children will be bringing home a reading book towards the end of next week. Reception are in full time next w

Chestnut Class Topic Memorabilia

The children are enjoying bringing in items relating to our Topic - Today we have seen a replica Victoria Cross medal that a pupil bought at the weekend.

Chestnut Class Curriculum Visit

Last week we welcomed Claire from the Tank Museum, who gave Chestnut Class a whistle stop tour of World War Two. Which is our Topic this term.  Our children really enjoyed dressing up as evacuee children and soldiers and even trying on gas masks to see how it would have felt for people during the War. Children have been bringing in World War Two items from home to show and tell and have really engaged in our Topic this week. Well done Chestnut Class!
