Welcome to Class Oak !
Welcome to Class Oak. We hope you have had a lovely summer. The children have made a wonderful start this week all coming in so confident, happy and raring to go! Our Class webpage will be updated regularly with information and photos of the week so please do check it out. Our topic this half term is “All about me!” Our topic has a Knowledge and Understanding of the World focus and enables children to explore ‘after dark’ including finding out about the moon, stars, nocturnal animals and familiar routines at the end of the day like ‘bedtime routines’ ‘personal care’ (teeth brushing). Later this term we will be asking if the children could bring in their favourite snuggly toy and photographs of their parents and grandparents to help us with our family trees. We will send a letter out nearer the time.
All the children are encouraged to bring in a healthy snack each day for break time could you please ensure that this is clearly labelled to avoid confusion. Fruit can be written on or in a labelled container.
Year 1 Spelling
The children have spelling groups and spelling books. They will be bringing their books home on a Monday and subsequently tested the following Monday. These support our phonic patterns which are learnt weekly. Please encourage the children write sentences using between 2-6 spelling words ensuring the children remember their capital letters and full stops. These sentences can be written underneath their spelling words in the yellow books.
We have PE on a Tuesday afternoon this term having a dance focus, please could you ensure children bring their kit to school (they can leave it on their pegs).
Could we ask that children bring their reading books to school daily. The children take part in guided reading activities, peer reading and individual reading. Regular reading practise is essential for every child’s progress and we very much appreciate your support in this. Please sign or comment as to their progress at home!
The children are very confused as to whether they are having school dinners or packed lunch. For the next few weeks please could you complete a dinner slip which will come home every Friday and return it to the school office on Monday morning. Thank you very much for your co-operation in this
