Welcome to Oak Tree Class!
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.
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!
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.
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.
We have raised money for Winston’s wish and contributed gifts to Love in a Box.
Great Fire of London!
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!
