    Happy New Year and Welcome back! We hope you all enjoyed the Christmas break. Thank you for all your Christmas cards and gifts. I hope you have had a chance to look in the gallery (to the left of this) and see some of the photos from last half term. We have taken care to respect the wishes of those who don’t want their children on the website so if you can’t spot your child it could be because of your preferences.

    We were very sorry to say Goodbye to Logan at the end of last term as he joins his sister at their local school. This term we are excited to have a new boy and girl joining Oak class and hope they feel very welcome and make friends quickly.

    Published 23/03/19, by Ruth Stack

    It was great to have so many of you joining in with our Expressive Arts and Design activities on Wednesday afternoon. Oak Class love any excuse to be creative and really enjoyed the range of activities that were on offer. They are looking forward to seeing you again next Tuesday for our Fantastic Finish when they will have the opportunity to show off some of the work they are particularly proud of from this term.

  • Riddles and Red Noses . . .

    Published 16/03/19, by Ruth Stack

    The children enjoyed a very funny worship for Red Nose Day as each class shared their best joke with the rest of the school. We had some interesting contenders. Here are three of our funniest:

    "Why did the boy throw the butter out of the window?" 

    "He wanted to see the butterfly!" - Max.

    "What do you get if you mix a helicopter with a jelly?" - "A Jelllycopter!" - Emma.

    "Knock knock" "Who's there?" "Granny" "Granny who?"

    "Knock knock" "Who's there?" "Granny" "Granny who?"

    "Knock knock" "Who's there?" "Aunt",

    "Aunt who?" "Aren't you glad I got rid of all those Grannies!" - Francesca.

    Thank you for supporting this special day.

  • Making and Creating in Oak Class

    Published 10/03/19, by Ruth Stack

    Thank you to all those who came and joined us for our class Worship on Tuesday. Despite a few nerves and some shyness the children did their best to share the story of Prodigal Son and the message of God's forgiveness. 

    Thank you also for helping to prepare the children for World Book Day. There were some imaginative and thoughtful outfits and the children really enjoyed writing and sharing their own books on the day. Thank you for your support. Hopefully you will have found your child's Book Day voucher in their book bag and will have fun choosing a book together.

  • Getting ready . . .

    Published 03/03/19, by Ruth Stack

    The children have been preparing their Class Worship this week and welcome you all to come and join us on Tuesday morning to share in this special worship. Hopefully you received the invitation your child made for you. Your child may have also brought home their line to practise (on bright yellow paper), thank you for your support getting them ready. Some children are actors or are reading out their work instead so don't worry if your child doesn't have a line; they will still have an important role to play.

  • Becoming Animal Experts

  • Amazing Animals

    Published 12/01/19, by Ruth Stack

    Oak Class loved meeting lots of different animals on Monday when Heather from Zoo Lab came to visit and introduced them to her pets! The children have been keen to tell me about their experiences and produced some informative writing about their experiences. The children had the opportunity to touch the animals and apparently the snake felt like "plastic" rather than slimey as some had expected. The giant African land snail was, however, very slimey and could, "Grow as big as a football!" A lot of the children thought the guinea-pig, Perry, was very, "Cute and fluffy" and also the spider, a tarantula who stayed in its box, was fluffy and could flick up its hair. There was also a cockroach who, "Tickled you" when you held it.  The children learnt whether these animals were minibeasts or had a backbone instead. They were also introduced to the terms; herbivore, omnivore, and carnivore and had to decide which of these each animals was which, once Heather had told them what they ate. It has been a brilliant introduction to our science topic of ‘Animals’ and will really help the children as they learn to sort and classify animals for themselves.
