Oak Class (Reception)

Welcome to Oak Class 
Oak Class is for our Reception children. Miss Adams is our Class Teacher and Mrs Tait is her teaching assistant.
The Reception children are able to access the whole Early Years unit both inside and out alongside the Nursery children to help develop all their early learning goals.

On a Friday children will bring home their new phonics sounds in their sound pack. Please continue to practice these at home. Reading books will also be changed over. 
Ambulance Visit
Mr Tate visited us to talk about his job and taught us some first aid. We also got to look in the ambulance. 
Dinosaur Fossils 
We used the salt dough to make dinosaur fossils. We then hid them in the sand pit and dug them up. 
The Greedy Elf Pantomime 
Santa Dash!
We are so proud of the children for their first Nativity!
Remembrance Day
We learnt about Remembrance Day and why we wear a poppy. We then created our own poppies using egg boxes that we painted red, black pom poms and green painted straws. We also made tissue paper poppies and used them all for our big display. 
We have enjoyed learning about Diwali. We used clay to make our own Diya lamps, we used the tools to create patterns, we then pained them and added glitter. 
Forest School
We have so much fun during our forest school sessions. 
Making playdough. 
We love to make our own play dough. We describe how it feels, smells and looks. 
Bonfire Night
We have loved celebrating bonfire night. We have made our own firework marks, paintings and even watched a firework video whilst having some yummy hot chocolate. 
Little Movers
We have so much fun at Little Movers. 
Parachute Games
We love playing the parachute game. We always listen carefully to the instructions. 
Exploring Pumpkins 
The children have really enjoyed exploring pumpkins. They used their senses to describe the pumpkins. We loved making pumpkin soup and pumpkin pie. 
European Languages Day 
For European Languages Day we have been learning all about the country Norway. We have worked with an artist Katherine Renton to explore feelings and colours. We learnt about the flag of Norway and used the maps to find the country. 
We love Little Movers
Forest School 
The children enjoyed exploring the forest and looking for signs of Autumn. We found lots of leaves which had fallen from the trees, and lots of acorns and pine cones.
