Oak class have had a fantastic sporting week. We had our first session with Doncaster Rovers,  have been out building our muscles on our wheeled vehicles, and had a wonderful time chasing bouncy balls all over the playground! Our favourite activity was tennis with Mr Miles.  We started with our warms ups, before moving onto working with just a ball.  We worked with a partner to practice throwing and catching  a tennis ball, before moving onto using a racket. The children were so engaged and enthusiastic that  they tired Mr Miles out and he needed a rest!

This week in Oak class we had to design and make a boat strong and big enough to carry a penguin across the sea. The children came up with some fantastic designs and talked about which materials float.  They looked at balance and stability as boats tipped over, and changed their designs to stop it happening. Reuben really thought things through as his Lego boat took on water. He  showed resilience by adding to his design lots of times finally deciding to use cellotape to make it waterproof. It worked!

This week in Oak class we have been talking about looking after the environment. We went as a class to Collaboration corner to make the area clean, tidy and safe for others to use. We then looked at living things to see the changes taking place. We found blossom there was blossom on the conker tree, and old conkers we had collected in Autumn that had taken shoot and started to grow into trees.  We are going to pot them up and plant them in Thompson woods

This week in Oak class we followed the children’s interests and set up some amazing role play activities with the children.  First of all we set up Bert’s Barrow which is Tommy’s Grandads farm shop, and then we set up a hair and beauty salon.  Zach and Lilly brought some amazing accessories for the salon and anyone who walked in has been pampered!  We have seen some amazing maths  in the farm shop, as well as great writing as the children wrote their shopping lists for Bert!

As part of our people who help us topic we have set up a Hospital role play in our outdoor area.  The children have had fantastic fun dressing as doctors, nurses and paramedics. They treat their patients and write accidents report forms. We have seen some wonderful bandages wrapped around arms, legs and heads!  The children built a fantastic ambulance to transport the patients to hospital in the construction area, including its flashing light!

In Oak class we have been looking at lots of opportunities to get the children reading their tricky words.  The Easter Bunny stole all of our carrots and wrote words on them. They were hidden all over our outdoor area and we had to search for them and read the words.  At snack time we found our bananas were covered words as well!  Then we went on scrambled egg hunt where we had to unscramble words and write them.  What fun!

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!

In Oak class we have had a very busy, but exciting book week.  Our book for the week was another book illustrated by the amazing Oliver Jeffers, called The day the crayons quit. We had great fun listening to how each colour grumbled!  We were really lucky on Wednesday to be visited by the author Richard O’Neil who told helped us act out the story of Colin the cat!  At the end of the day we were joined by our families to share our favourite stories.
