Autumn Term 2017
Hopefully you have already received a hard copy of the "Welcome to Oak Class" booklet. Please read this and then on Monday 11th September at 3pm there is a chance to "Meet the Teacher". This will be a short meeting to discuss school expectations and to give you a chance to ask any questions.
This term Oak Class' topic is "Festivals and Celebrations".
We will be looking at birthdays, can we remember what happened on our last birthday? Making large collage cakes for 4 or 5 years old, learning when are birthday is and role play parties!
At harvest we will be going to church to celebrate, we will also bake bread with Mrs Cooper and talk about where food comes from.
We will learn a little about the history of bonfire night and the gunpowder plot, we will make 3D fireworks and make our own bonfire with autumn leaves, with Guy Fawkes on the top!
Parents will be invited to a special assembly by Oak Class about Divali. We will look at Mendhi and Rangoli patterns; dressing up in saris; and make clay diva lamps, sweets and cards for our Divali celebration.
Then finally there will be Christmas and all the fun activities, parties, pantomime, Natvity in church, visit from Santa, making cards, calendars and gifts.
LOTS OF FUN!
Autumn Term 2016
This term Oak Class's topic is "Ourselves".
So far we have painted self-portraits and talked about how we are the same and how we are different, we also looked at the story "All Kinds of People".
The story "Cleversticks" made us think about what we are good at, dancing, dressing up, racing... were just a few ideas!
We also had great fun trying to eat with chopsticks.
In topic work we will be looking at our bodies and how we can stay healthy. The school nurse will be coming in to talk about hand hygiene and we will be making paper plate dinners for our favourite food (possibly not always healthy!)
Our role play area is set up as a hospital, many patients seem to visit every day. We will also be having a visit from the "Life Bus" to find out more about our bodies.
We will be talking about our families and family traditions, how we celebrate Harvest, birthdays, bonfire night and Christmas. We will also be finding out more about our school and our village.
