Oak Class


W/B 16/10/17

We have had great fun this week designing our own aliens in Oak Class. We met Adam Adjective, who taught us all about adjectives (describing words) and we thought of lots of different adjectives to describe our own aliens! 

Our sound of the week is the split digraph a_e as in cake, late, gate etc. This is probably the best Alphablocks episode and reinforces the split digraph (magic e) rule. Alphablocks 'Magic e'

In Maths this week we have been learning to tell the time. We have learnt O'clock and half past the hour and it would be great if you can practise this at home to reinforce what we have learnt at school. 

A quick note about milk, your child no longer receives free school milk but lots are wanting it during fruit time. If your child would like milk at school please log on to Cool Milk. You can register there and pay for your milk on line. 

We hope you all have a wonderful half term break. Don't forget school's Firework night on Saturday 28th October.

We look forward to seeing you on Monday 30th October. 

W/B 9/10/17 

We have had a great week in Oak Class, we were so interested in the moon landing and space that we have now begun to learn more about it! We have also been reading a really funny book called ‘Aliens Love Underpants’ by Claire Freedman and Ben Cort. 

Our sound in phonics this week is the ‘ai’ as in train and ‘ay’ as in day sound. This is a great episode of alphablocks to watch to reinforce the sounds. Alphablocks 'ai' 'ay' and 'a_e'

In Maths this week we have been finding numbers on a number line and we have looked at fractions. Use your purple mash account to find a great pizza fraction game. 

We are moving on to time next week so get looking at those clocks and watches!! 


W/B 2/10/17

We have been working hard in Oak class this week. We have been learning about the first ever moon landing and thought about how Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin would have felt walking on the moon. We have also talked about Tim Peake and watched a video of him playing water ping pong in space! We have even designed and labelled our own rockets.

In phonics this week our sound is 'ng' as in ring and 'nk' as in pink. Trying practising phonics at home using Deep Sea Phonics

In Maths this week both year 1 and 2s have been working on learning their number bonds to 10 and then 20. Number bonds are the 2 numbers that can be added together to make one number for example




3+7=10 etc

This is our favourite number bonds song at the moment and the children are great at singing along! That makes 10

You can practise number bonds to 20 using The Funky Mummy Game and number bonds to 10 using the 'Save the Whale' game which is linked below.

Just a reminder that this Friday is a show and tell Friday, children can bring in anything they have written or drawn, photos or booklets about somewhere they have been. Please no toys.

W/B 25/9/17

We've been busy in Oak class this week. We have been very lucky and had some old toys in to look at. We talked about what the toys were made from and how they were played with. We also thought of questions we could ask our grandparents about life when they were young.

In maths this week we have been measuring. Year 1s were measuring using non standard measure (we used multi links and bricks) and were really good at finding objects smaller than a 1 metre and longer than 1 metre. Practise measuring at home asking children to find objects that are longer or shorter than a given object. allow them to put items into size order.

Year 2s have been measuring using cm. They were able to find objects shorter than 10cm and measure them to the nearest cm and objects that were longer. Practise measuring at home giving children a ruler and ask them to find objects to measure to the nearest cm. 

Our phonics sounds this week are words ending in -ing as in jumping, -ed as in jumped and -er as in jumper. Use your sound book to look at the words and talk about words with these endings at home.

W/B 18/9/17

We have had a great week in Oak class and the children are working hard and filling up their sticker charts. We are still looking at toys and are beginning to compare our toys to toys from the past.

Our phonics sounds this week are 'll' as in well, 'zz' as in buzz and 'ck' as in kick. These sounds will be in your sound books with more examples of words with those sounds. Look at these words with your child, see if you can spot words with those sounds in. Look for them when you're reading, around the house and when you're out and about!

In maths this week we have been adding coins (up to 10p/20p) to make different amounts. At home, show your child different coins and let them play with them and add them together. If you get the opportunity you could take them shopping and let them use the coins to buy something. You can also play the Toy Shop Money Game to practise adding coins together.

WELCOME BACK. We hope you had the most amazing summer.

We spent the first week just settling back in, getting to know each other and we're getting used to new routines.

This week we have continued with our 'All about me' topic and have had fun looking at our favourite toys. We found out why they are so special to us and we heard stories about lost toys!

Our phonics sound this week is 'ff' and 'ss' e.g. puff, miss, off, kiss

In maths this week we are learning about the number bonds that make 5. 

0+5=5, 1+4=5, 2+3=5, 3+2=5, 4+1=5, 5+0=5 

You can practice number bonds to 10 at home using this game. save the whale
