As part of Mrs Gay’s Forest school work she has invited Oak class to take care of our schools chickens. Every Friday afternoon two children will be chosen to help Mrs Gay clean out the chickens.  They will make sure they have enough food and water, and if they are lucky, collect any eggs the chickens might have laid in their nest box. What a fantastic opportunity for Oak class!

This week in Oak class we have been challenging ourselves in Maths with the Add Man challenge. We used Numicon to add numbers together and recorded our answers and one of us got to wear the Add man cape for the day. We also had our first Super hero writers of the year!  We have loved the sunshine this week and have really enjoyed the being outside observing our frogspawn and making booklets about them.

On Tuesday Oak class had a visit from Sam’s Safari. Sam showed us her stick insects, tree frog, lizard, python, tortoise, mouse and chinchilla. 

All the children had the opportunity to hold or touch each animal with their “brave finger” or simply say “no thank you.” We learnt lots of interesting information and listened really carefully. Sam says the children were exceptional in the way they behaved, sat and listened. We were very proud!

Later in the week Miss Johnson did some work in the classroom using magnifying glasses. All of a sudden Mrs Bramley had us all outside in Collaboration corner and we became Nature Detectives! We spent time looking for mini-beasts and searching for signs of Spring. It was great fun!

We have also started to look at measuring and had great fun measuring around the classroom.

In maths this week we looked at the Number blocks programme Fruit salad.  In the episode the number blocks had a machine that split amounts of fruit into two sets of numbers. After the programme, we made our own machine outside and rolled fruit down the shoots. We then recorded the sums on the  blackboard. Inside we used the Numicon and  a multi link to split up numbers into two parts. Mrs Smith and Mrs Bramley were amazed!

This week in  Oak class we have continued with our Lost and found topic by looking at  the North Pole.  We looked at Polar bears and learnt lots of interesting facts about them. Next we took advantage of the cold weather and investigated ice! We collected natural resources from around our school grounds and made ice sculptures. We then used magnifying glasses to look closely at the ice that had formed in our outdoor area.

We even built our own stable and  manger for Baby Jesus.
