Descriptive Writing

posted 31 Jan 2018, 03:23 by H East

We have been really enjoying Roal Dahl's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory in class. In our Literacy lessons, we have been beginning to talk about how we can describe characters in lots of detail. We now know what similes are and we are very good at creating our own.      

Splendid Skies

Happy New Year! We have had a wonderful first day back in to school. Today, the children came in dressed ready for their 'Dream Holiday'. Oaks were going all over the world to countries like New Zealand, Spain and Norway. The classroom was transformed into Oaks' International Airport and we explored different areas we might encounter in a real airport. Thank you for taking the time to send the children in to school with such exciting outfits and clothes. We had a brilliant day! 

End of Term and P.E. Kit Notice

posted 18 Dec 2017, 08:23 by H East

Thank you for all of your support this first term, the children have all made fantastic progress across the curriculum. Our Year 1 children have settled in fantastically and have adjusted well to their new work expectations. As for our Year 2 children, they have enjoyed being role models in Oaks and have worked incredibly hard this term.

Over the holidays, please could you check through your children’s P.E. bags to see if they have all of their clothing items, or potentially to see whether they have any additional items that may belong to others in the class? Also, could you check that all of your children’s clothing items are labelled to prevent any items going missing.


January Topic Day

posted 8 Dec 2017, 07:53 by H East

On Thursday the 4th of January we will be having a topic day. Our new topic is called Splendid Skies, and it is all about air travel, weather and our seasons. During our topic day, we would like all of the children to come in dressed for their dream holiday. They could be going to the beach, sight-seeing in a city or even off skiing. We would also like for them to bring a small suitcase or back pack with some of their holiday essentials inside. If you have any questions about our topic day, please do not hesitate to speak to Mrs Doolan or Miss East. Alternatively, you can email us at

Our Blue Planet

We had a whale of a time learning about a variety of sea creatures during our new topic. It was fantastic to hear what the children already knew about sea animals, and we had lots of fun learning more. We used this information to create our own fact files on whales, dolphins and sharks. 

Rock Stars Times Tables

posted 20 Oct 2017, 04:41 by H East

Some children have already logged on to use this new website. The children will have challenges which will test their knowledge of our 2, 5 and 10 times tables on the Garage and Arena settings. The Studio challenge will look at all times tables so it may be a little tricky for Oaks until they move up the school. Good luck and have fun!

Homework Break

posted 17 Oct 2017, 05:40 by H East

Over the half term break, Oaks will not have any spellings to learn. Instead, we will be sending each child home with two reading books. Please try to read these reading books at least once each. Once you have read them, look at the question sheets we will be sending home in your book bags. Discuss and answer some of these with your family or friends. 

An exciting visitor...

This week we had a visit from an Astrophysicist. She answered lots of our questions and we learnt so much more about space. 

Number Bonds and Pasta

posted 29 Sep 2017, 08:58 by H East

In Maths, this week, we have started to look at our number bonds to 10, 20 and 100. Today, we used pasta to show our number bonds and to help us solve some missing number sums. We had lots of fun, but the pasta ended up everywhere!

Welcome back, Oaks! We have started our new school year well and we are already exploring our new topic. We have built our own spaceships, explored foreign galaxies and learnt about our solar system.
