  • Wednesday 3 May 2023 Coronation Biscuits As part of celebrating King Charles III coronation, Oak Class made guard biscuits complete with chocolate bearskin hats. They used fondant icing for the faces and uniforms and decorated with writing icing. The children were very excited to learn that had to be eaten straightaway. All guards devoured and enjoyed!
  • Sunday 30 April 2023 Watercolour Exploration Oak Class have been looking at the iceberg art of Frederic Church. On Wednesday, the children created a wet wash and experimented with watercolours, blending different colours together. We are hoping to use our watercolour skills to make our own iceberg art - watch this space!
  • Thursday 30 March 2023 Rocket Building Oak Class have looked at images of spaceships through the ages and decided which they like best. They then designed their own rockets, and yesterday got to make their rockets using different joining techniques. The double-sided tape was a huge hit!
  • Wednesday 22 March 2023 British Science Week 2023 The children thoroughly enjoyed the activities in British Science Week. They completed the Happy Smells activity, thinking about how smells can invoke memories and feelings, and can also make us aware of danger. As well as thinking about smells that make us happy, the children also had to identify hidden smells such as lemon, curry powder, strawberry jam and Marmite.
  • Wednesday 8 March 2023 Spectacular Spacescapes The children in Oak Class have been learning how to create tints and shades by blending chalks and pastels. They have also learnt how to make a 3D looking sphere using these techniques. To show off their new skills they have created wonderful spacescapes with beautiful planets and stars.
  • Wednesday 25 January 2023 Winter Walk Reception and Year One explored outdoors on a Winter Walk as part of our science lesson this week. We were looking for signs of winter and we found plenty. There was snow, frost and ice, trees were missing leaves, and we saw very few flowers (just the signs of snowdrops and daffodils starting to grow).
  • Wednesday 14 December 2022 Stable Scene A favourite annual event is setting up the class nativity scene. The Reception children placed the characters carefully inside the stable as we told the story of Christmas and the birth of Jesus. Year 1 remembered when they had this important job to do last year and helped to tell the story.
  • Wednesday 14 December 2022 Whoops a Daisy Angel The children did such an amazing job at all our nativity performances. They sang and acted beautifully and made us all incredibly proud.
  • Friday 18 November 2022 Harold's Visit Yesterday Alex and Harold came to visit for our annual Life Education Session. The children learned all about how to stay healthy and how we can look after our bodies. They also helped Harold solve a tricky friendship problem.
  • Wednesday 19 October 2022 Something has hatched! The children in Oak Class were very surprised and delighted to find a golden egg outside our classroom on their way into school one morning. It was surrounded by black scorch marks! The children decided to try to hatch the egg - there were many different theories as to what might be inside! The children made a soft nest and we put the egg in a warm, quiet place. We tried to find relevant information in the story 'The Egg.' In the story, George has to wait 3 days for his egg to hatch! Our egg finally hatched on day 3 too and hiding inside was a very cute baby dragon. The children chose to call him Chip.
