Well what a busy year we have had in Oak class. We can’t believe that it is time for some of them to move on, but they are ready, the little acorns are now the mighty Oaks!

The highlight of the year for most of the children has been our maths work. This is due to their love of Numberblocks. The children have an incredible understanding of number and I can’t wait to see how they take it into their learning as they move onto year one.

This week in Oak class we have been taking care of living things. On Tuesday we let our wonderful Painted lady butterflies go in our school grounds.  The children were so calm and patient waiting for them to fly!  On Wednesday some of our boys planted the tiny conker trees we have grown this year in Thompson woods. It was wonderful to see their independence and determination as they worked together to plant them.  What a team!

We were incredibly proud of Oak class on Sports day. They loved competing in their races and were so supportive of each other as each race ended. I loved watching their determination to win, their resilience when they didn't and how they were respectful to each other once the race was over. The team work they showed in the relay race just shows how far they have come with their collaboration skills. It was a long afternoon but they were patient while they waiting, enjoying watching their friends from higher up school race. Well done Oak class you are a credit to our school!

We have had a very busy week in Oak class. We have been getting ready for our Learning assembly on Friday by talking about the life cycle of a Butterfly.  We used The very hungry caterpillar as our starting point and the children then led their own learning, even bringing in amazing work they had done at home.  We loved sharing our learning in Assembly! Our caterpillars are now turning into Cocoons and we let our lovely little Froglets go back into the school pond earlier in the week.  The children were sad but knew is was time to say goodbye!

Oak class have been so excited this week as Series four of Numberblocks has started!  Finally we got to meet the new Numberblocks for 16,17,18,19,20. We have watched some fantastic episodes such as Balancing bridge. Here the children had to work out how to make each section of the bridge balance  by adding numbers together to get each side to balance. They were adding up to 15 in their heads!  If you haven't seen it  have a look. The episodes are on iPlayer now!

We have had a very exciting week in Oak class. Finally after weeks of patient waiting we have Froglets! Mrs Gay kindly collected Frogspawn from our school pond and we have watched our tiny tadpoles emerge and grow. We have some with no legs, some with 2, some 4 and then this week we were so excited to have  four tiny froglets who come out of the water to sit on a log to breath. Then yesterday got even better when 5 tiny caterpillars arrived. Today we are going to spend time observing them and most importantly choosing their names!

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!
