Towers, Tunnels and Topic Day!

posted 7 Jan 2019, 10:28 by H East

We have had a brilliant first day back for the Spring term! The children came dressed as a character who may have, at one point in time, lived or worked in a castle. The costumes were fantastic and we saw jesters, kings, queens, maids, servants, princesses and knights! We also have a very special entrance way made for us which made us feel like we were walking into a real castle - not our classroom. 

Marvelous Medicine

We have begun to read the wonderful book George's Marvelous Medicine! Oaks have really liked the funny parts and love the descriptions of George's horrible Grandma. On our first day back, we even had a visit from Grandma from the book! It was a bit scary but very funny.

We had a very exciting visit from the Milton Keynes fire station. We learnt a lot about how the fire engines are used and we all got the chance to use a hose!

Maths Madness

Over the last few weeks we have been looking at Place Value. All of Oaks have worked incredibly hard and we are all starting to get used to how our lessons run. Our Year 1 children have fitted in brilliantly and are really enjoying using our new apparatus.

A Super Welcome Back!

posted 4 Sep 2018, 08:53 by H East

We started our term off with a BANG! A superhero bang that is! It has been a brilliant first day back and everyone made such a brilliant effort with their costumes. Not only that, but everyone came to school ready to learn and we created some excellent sentences which we wrote down in our topic books. We are so impressed with how everyone showed our school values and the class has already earned three points towards Golden Time.

Our new topic is all about the country of Brazil and its capital city of Rio de Janeiro. We have learnt a lot about their famous parades and decided to have one of our own! We created colourful, interesting and sparkling masks which we wore on our parade across our school field. We also made instruments which we used to play on our route and we all managed to keep to different tempos and beats as we played together.

Reasoning Week

posted 21 May 2018, 01:10 by H East

This week we have been busy solving LOTS of Mathematics reasoning questions. We have been looking at problems we might have to solve in real life, including those that might involve money, food and sharing. It was been fun and we have learnt about how to understand how different reasoning questions are phrased. 

Minibeast hunt!

posted 18 Apr 2018, 08:50 by H East

Today we put on our wellies and walked up to the Bow Brickhill woods. It was lots of fun and we were able to find lots of minibeasts hiding under trees, leaves and stones. We talked about their different habitats and why those chose these places to live. We were even lucky enough to hear the sounds of a wood pecker on a tree! It was a lovely day out in the sun.

Creepy Crawly Visitors

posted 13 Apr 2018, 06:44 by H East

This week, we had a very special delivery in Oaks! We have some creepy crawly guests in the form of baby caterpillars. We will be caring for these caterpillars until they move through their life cycle and become butterflies. It will be very exciting and we will keep you updated on their progress.

Street Detectives

posted 20 Feb 2018, 08:37 by H East

Our new topic for this half term is Street Detectives. We will be looking at Bow Brickhill in the past and in the present. Today, we looked at the Bow Brickhill website and found some amazing pictures of our school from the past. We found one picture which was 110 years old! It was fascinating to see how our school has changed and how different the children look now.
