Oaks Latest News

October 2021

This month in Oaks class we have been focusing on our topic of Journeys. They have written great stories based on The Train Ride by June Crebbin using many of the different writing skills we have learned about. Oaks have persevered with their writing, showing amazing focus and imagination throughout.


Oaks have been very enthusiastic when learning about the 7 continents and 5 oceans, they are well on their way to knowing them off by heart!


I know the teachers at Bow Brickhill are excited to see the results of our DT and Art project about infographics. Oaks have done lots of research in preparation, including writing questionnaires, creating a success criteria and designing their own colour schemes.


A big well done to everyone in Oaks for working so hard these first few weeks!

May 2021

We’ve had a busy week continuing our learning about the Great Fire of London.

We have learnt about fire safety and the Stop Drop Roll technique. We also talked about 999 and how to make an emergency call.

Today, a town crier came in to our classroom, shouting about a fire and ringing a bell! We wrote our own messages on scrolls and then practised shouting them outside.

We have continued to learn how to play London's Burning on xylophones and Chime Bars. We have also started making Tudor houses which is lots of fun.

London Topic Day

Today we have learnt about London. We started off by finding out where London is and how we could get there. Then we looked at famous landmarks using Google Earth, webcams and pictures. We enjoyed a quiz to see how many we could name. After lunchtime, we prepared an afternoon tea. We made cucumber sandwiches, fruit kebabs and decorated iced biscuits. We also made bunting. At the end of the day, we went on a boat trip down the River Thames. We had our tickets checked and some of us took on the role of Captain. During our trip, we ate our afternoon tea and learnt some more about famous landmarks from our brilliant tour guide Mrs Doolan.

Please see below some photos of what we have been doing recently.
