Oaks Latest News

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

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

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.

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.

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.
