Welcome to Oak Class.
We are now half way through our year in Oak Class. The children are very well settled into school life and we have enjoyed half a term on our topic "Once Upon a Time." We have concetrated on The Three Billy Goats Gruff and are now learning about Jack and the Beanstalk.
On Friday, Oak Class arrived at school to find a crime scene in their classroom. The classroom was covered in footprints and hazard tape, and the golden egg from our giants castle role play was missing! The children talked together and shared ideas about who they thought had taken the egg and what they were going to do about it! Mr Jennings was the number one suspect! The children then set about making posters to inform the rest of the school about the missing egg. Some measured the footprints and then went around school trying to find the culprit by the size of their shoes!
They finally found that Mrs Kiely had taken the egg as she mistook it for one of the “Easter Fun Day” eggs and had taken it to the office for safe keeping!
With Shrove Tuesday falling in half term, we had to celebrate on the last day of term! The children followed a recipe and weighed the ingredients to make the pancakes under the watchful eye of Mrs Ismay. The children had the very traditional toppings of lemon and sugar. Some of the photos were taken by the children. The pancakes were very well enjoyed!
This is the Bear
Oak Class have been learning to rhyme using the "This is the Bear" books. On Thursday, some Year One children came in to create their own rhyming sentences about bears using 'Book Creator' on the ipads. They chose rhyming objects from the classroom, took photos of the bears and typed their sentences with the pictures. They then showed their work to Oak Class. Some of the children in Reception chose to take pictures of bears and either speak a sentence or to have a go at typing one. Well done everyone!
