Another busy and very exciting term of learning and fun!

During the Spring Term, we enjoyed many visitors and school events such as The Reluctant Dragon, Falconry UK and The Science Dome. Once again the children engaged in fantastic projects creating a range of amazing home leaning such as Birdwatch projects, the Rainforests and sharing experiments during the Science Week.

At school, we were very busy learning new skills across the curriculum and enjoyed trying out new things such as making a hand-made paper!

BEST ATTENDANCE

AUTUMN TERM

We have been very busy this term exploring our new curriculum and finding more about the beautiful world around us. We are proud of our work so far and we continue to strive to do our best learning.

In RE, we are learning about God’s Creation. We have been exploring ‘The Story of Creation’ through drama, art and by looking very closely at God’s words in the Bible. We are grateful for the wonderful world God has created for us but we also understand that we are responsible for looking after God’s creations.

During English lessons, we have been learning how to write a postcard inspired by the book Journey by Aaron Becker. We also wrote acrostic poems about SUNFLOWERS inspired by the sunflowers from the school garden. We are now working on a new story of the enormous....vegetable from the school garden!

The Gigantic Turnip

In Maths, we have been using different resources to help us understand Place Value.  We can read, write, order and compare numbers up to 100 and beyond.

Number Place Value

During Science lessons, we have been learning about habitats. We are very lucky to have such a beautiful garden where we can admire God’s creation but also to explore micro- habitats. We found lots of little creatures under the logs, in the flower beds, up in the trees and even in the pond! We know that we need to respect everyone’s homes so that all the living things can stay healthy and safe.

This term in Art, we have been learning about Vincent Van Gogh. We learned lots of facts about his life and we admired his wonderful paintings. We looked at the sunflowers from the school garden to develop our skills of sketching and painting. It’s great to be an artist!

SUNFLOWERS

In Geography, we are learning about Continents and Oceans. We have used atlases and globes to help us learn about the world we live in.

CONTINENTS AND OCEANS

This term, we welcomed some opportunities to develop new skills such as playing chess. We were also very excited to welcome Metabugs and we learned lots new and exciting facts about different bugs. We watched them, held them and a great day was had by all!

PLAYING CHESS

Autumn is here…

We are very proud of the Autumn Projects created by Oak Tree Class. What a wonderful range of creativity; amazing poems, art work, 3D projects. Come and see our Autumn Display in the blue hall!

Science

During Science lessons we have been learning about food chains. We had so much fun playing ‘Find your food’ game and it really helped us understand what animals eat and how the weather effects different food chains.  We have a challenge for you:

Find the longest food chain and share it with the class!

Setting up science investigations

We all know how to plant a bulb. But what happens if…..

  • you use leaves instead of soil?   
  • you put a bulb upside down? 
  • you put the bulb right at the bottom of the pot?

We will have to wait and see!

SCIENCE INVESTIGATIONS

Spud and Yum

To celebrate Black History Months, we had very special guests who joined in singing and storytelling to teach our about the Caribbean culture.

BLACK HISTORY MONTH

Halloween Parade

Once again, the children in Oak Tree class wowed us in their spooky costumes as we joined in the Halloween parade.  A fun day was had by all! Congratulations to the winners.

Halloween

Today, the 1st of November we celebrated a wonderful mass with Monsignor Reader to mark All Saints Day. As we begin the month of November, we remember and pray for all loved ones who have died in our families and communities.

ALL SAINTS DAY MASS

Last week, we all joined in an assembly about anti-bullying. The Power of One has helped us understand that bullying is hurtful and mean. We must not be a by-stander by just watching but we should be an up-stander by trying to help and stop the bullying. Remember to tell a teacher or a trusted adult if you see or experience bullying.

The event was followed by The Odd Socks Day. Firstly, it was fun! Secondly it encouraged everybody to express themselves and celebrate their individuality and what makes us all unique!

NO PENS DAY!

Have you ever wondered what it would be like if we had no pens...

Well, today we had a chance to find out….no pens were allowed….. and we still learned so much!

We used laptops to create fact files about St John Henry Newman. We used data branching during computing lesson. We read books and shared our own stories with the Reception children. We did mental Maths, we played games and we did not miss pens at all!

NO PENS DAY
