Oak Tree Class

Welcome to Oak Tree Class!

SUMMER TERM

NEW LIFE

As we returned to school after Easter, we were very lucky to enjoy once again this wonderful opportunity of watching the chicks hatch! The children have gained so much from this worthwhile experience, seeing first hand new life and all the awe and wonder that it brings. Each morning the children and staff joined in the excitement of the happy chicks. This will help us with our learning and writing about the life cycles.

CHICKS HAVE HATCHED!

TRAMPOLINING

 

As part of learning about Healthy Lifestyle, we love exercise in Oak Tree Class!

But this week, apart from jogging around the track, we enjoyed trampolining!

Did you know that a ten minute bounce is the same as a half hour run?

It also stimulates your metabolism, increases oxygen capacity, improves your sense of balance, increases oxygen circulation to tissues, strengthens the heart, increases energy and sense of vitality, firms and tones the muscles. But most of all, it makes you smile, laugh and is great FUN!

THE LIFE BUS

 

The Life Bus has arrived! We were very excited to join the Life Bus, which supports the children’s learning in Personal, Social, Health and Citizenship Education (PSHCE). The children took part in a workshop about their bodies and how to keep fit and healthy, how to deal with their emotions and how to work together.

THE SCHOOL GARDEN

It has been a busy term in the school garden. The children have been working hard on designing, preparing the soil and sowing vegetables in the garden beds. We can’t wait to see them germinating and growing in the warmth of summer!

FOSSILS

We learned a lot about the life and amazing discoveries of Mary Anning, one of the greatest Palaeontologist of all time. Inspired by the workshop about dinosaurs and fossils led by Science Dome during the Science Week, the children made their own fossils using clay and plaster of paris.

MOTHER'S DAY ACT OF WORSHIP

It was a pleasure to welcome all mothers during the Mother’s Day Act of Worship. We were delighted to share songs, poems and prayers in celebration of this very special day.

The children made beautiful cards and they presented their loving Mums with flowers and scented bags of lavender and mint collected from the school garden.

Happy Mother’s Day!

Once upon a time…

Inspired by the story of The Little Red Riding Hood, the children reinvented their own versions of the story. The boys and girls worked very hard writing, editing, illustrating and publishing their stories and proudly shared them with their Grandparents during the Grandparents’ Day.

We have been learning about Sustainability and Recycling.

We know where paper comes from and we also learned how to make our own paper using recycled materials such as old, scrap paper and cardboard. We used the hand made paper for bookmarks for our Grandparents. We had so much fun making the paper and it helped us to write a set of instructions.

 

ST DAVID'S DAY ASSEMBLY

 It has been such a wonderful week of learning about SCIENCE ALL AROUND US.

The children demonstrated excellent presenting and explaining skills showing off their Science experiments.

AUTUMN TERM

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

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

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!

Mrs Saiz and Miss Moriaty
