Welcome to Oak Tree Class!
It has been a very busy half term of learning and exciting activities for all!
Trip to the Postal Museum
On Wednesday, the 28th of November, the girls and boys from Year 2 visited the Postal Museum. It was a truly unforgettable experience riding through the hidden tunnels to learn about the history of the Mail and then exploring fun- filled interactive displays. The children loved discovering a miniature mail –themed world by taking on the jobs of postal workers. We also learned a lot about writing Christmas cards in the Victorian times. A great day was had by all!
Advent is ‘a time of getting ready’ and preparing ourselves for the birth of Jesus on Christmas Day. Father Kevin came to our class to help us think about this very special time. We made our Advent wreath this year out of plastic bags. We also wrote our thoughtful prayers for each day of Advent.
We have raised money for Winston’s wish and contributed gifts to Love in a Box.
Great Fire of London!
This term, in English, we have been learning to write letters and diaries. We were all inspired by Samuel Pepys and his famous diary of the Great Fire of London. This has helped us to learn about our history and the events from the past. The boys and girls from Oak Tree Class have shared some amazing home learning projects!
Autumn - was a busy time in our school garden. We have made bird feeders, planted bulbs, prepared experiments on compostable and non-compostable materials and watched the life cycle of the sunflowers. Recently, we have been learning all about food chains, which often start right there in the garden.
Thank you for your continued support!
