Once again the children of Oak Class have had a very busy half term. We have been learning about farms and bears as well as having 'Arts Week' and 'Sports Week'. We went on our first school trip to Manor Farm in East Leake where the children, and adults, had a fantastic time looking at all the different animals. In 'Arts Week' we learned about the continent Africa, and focussed on the amazing artwork of Edward Tingtinga. The children really enjoyed this topic. In Sports week we were busy taking part in; yoga, pilates, team building and practising for our Teddy Bear Races. We have ended the term with a Teddy Bears picnic that parents were invited to and a Teddy Bears picnic in the afternoon.
What a busy half term ! Well done children and have a lovely summer
We have been really busy in the first half of our Summer Term. So far we have been designing and making our own Troll, based on the story, 'The Three Billy Goats Gruff'. We wrote character descriptions and wrote our own story with a new baddie hiding under the bridge. Oak class voted, and we thought that 'Maleficent' was the scariest new baddie !
After this we moved onto the life cycle of a caterpillar and had a go at drawing it for ourselves. We read lots of different stories including 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar'. We designed repeating patterns for our caterpillars, and beautiful symmetrical wings for our butterflies. Miss Savory was very proud of our 'Life Cycle' writing and some of us even went to show it off to Mrs Newton. She was really impressed too !
We are now starting our flower topic and are waiting for our caterpillars to begin making their cocoons. It's going to be an exciting few weeks !
We have been caring for and making sure the birds all have enough food in this cold and snowy weather!
In Maths we have been making 2D shape pizzas and 2D shape rockets!
This Winter in Oak class we have been busy labelling and writing sentences about snowmen as well as painting snowmen!
India and Diwali week!
We have been learning all about India and the celebration of Diwali.
