Exciting times in Oak Class
What an exciting couple of weeks we've had in Oak Class. Last week the children had an interesting time visiting the Museum. Although we didn't make it to the beach that day in the end we have made up for it this week by bringing the sea to to our classroom through all sorts of art work.
The children really enjoyed the trip to the museum and were excited to see so many different things from the past. Some familiar and some unusual, the children asked really thoughtful questions to find out more and were able to tell me all about it. Hopefully they shared their highlights with you too. Thank you to all those of you who came along to help.
This week it has been really hands on for our Expressive Arts and Design week. The children have all been involved in helping to make a giant turtle - Wallace, using recycled materials. Hopefully we will be able to upload a photo of him soon. A great team effort.
The children have explored different textures and techniques with printing, painting, drawing and clay work, thinking all the time about the sea and the creatures that live in it. Also the children have been busy creating individual artworks of their own which you will be able to see and possibly even purchase at the art exhibition on the 11th July.
We are really enjoying our football coaching which continues on Friday afternoons. It is great to see all children whether used to playing football or not, giving it their all and working together to support their team. We play this out on the field and on sunny days as we had this week it is really important that all children have sun-cream applied at home, a sun hat or cap to wear and their own water bottle. Please remember these next week - especially important as we have Sports Day in the morning as well.
We are also looking forward to Transition Day on Wednesday when the children will get the chance to spend time getting to know their new teachers, their new class groups and their new classrooms.
The children had a visit from one of the librarians from Bognor library this week. She was telling them all about this summer's reading challenge. They can join the library for free (if not already a member), and sign up to the reading challenge. They would get rewards for reading books over the summer and if they read 6 books, (or listen to them), and can talk to the librarians about what thas been read, then they will earn a special reading medal which they can bring into school in September to share in our celebration worship. It is a great opportunity to build on their love of books. There is also a beat the streets box not far from the library so you could work on both challenges at the same time! Hopefully your child is making the most of the Beat the Streets challenge and enjoying getting out and about and winning points for our school.
