Welcome to Oak Class

We are a mixed Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 class. Our classroom is bright and has lots of resources to help us with our learning.  We are very lucky to have our own outside area where we can explore and develop our own learning.  All of us enjoy school and cannot wait to show you what we have been up to.

What is it like to be in Oak Class?

During the school day, children work directly with a teacher or adult on specific activities. The Early Years Foundation Stage children are provided with continuous provision around the classroom and engaging activities to do with the teacher or an adult.  The children enjoy working together for some activities.


Show and Tell

Each week 3 children have the opportunity to bring in an item from home, or to share something with the class as part of our Show and Tell session on Friday. The children are then encouraged to ask questions about the item or the information shared. Below is the timetable for Show and Tell.

Show and Tell timetable 2017.18

Charlie the Crocodile

We had a visit from big Charlie the Crocodile on Friday 24th November. He helps us to remember the < and > symbols. The children know that Charlie ‘eats’ the biggest number.

We then went outside to find big numbers to feed to Charlie as his after-lunch snack. Look at the big numbers we found outside!


  As part of our Religious Education, the children in Reception class have learned about Diwali, the Festival of Lights, and have made Diwali Diyas from clay and decorated them.


Harvest Service and Activities

On Thursday 19th October, we mixed Oak and Ceder class to share 3 Harvest Activities.

We made Cheerio bird feeders using pipe cleaners, then shaping them.

We played Headbands to guess which different fruit or vegetable we were. We made hanging window … using natural materials such as leaves.

In the afternoon we had our Harvest Service in St Lenard’s Church.

The children in Reception performed ‘Big Red Combine Harvester’ with wonderful singing and actions.

Years 1 and 2 showed Maple Leaf Dragonflies they had made from natural materials they had found on the school field.
