Welcome to Oak Class.

In Oak Class, we have 20 enthusiastic Year 1 children. Our class teacher is called Miss Brooks and she provides us with lots of new and exciting opportunities in which we learn. Our teaching assistant is Miss Hunter. We love to learn and always have lots of fun in lessons. We are very lucky to have a theme filled classroom and access to a fantastic outside areas.  In Oak Class, we believe that every child is Unique and we carefully track the children to ensure the firm foundations are embedded, enabling them to succeed.

In Oak Class, we follow the National Curriculum for Year 1. Our planning aims to inspire young minds through vibrant fun filled topics that stimulate the imagination and the curiosity of our youngest learners.

We are very lucky to have a super teaching assistant called Miss Hunter. She helps us with lots of our work and makes us smile every day.

What have we been up to?

Our first theme of the year is ‘Marvellous Me and The Marvellous People Who Help Us’. We have been very busy exploring all about our amazing bodies and real life superheroes.

English / Literacy – We have been really enjoying the story ‘Funnybones’ and we have been practising our story writing.

Maths – We have had lots of fun outside. We have been counting lots and concentrating on counting reliably. The children have had lots of fun with chalk and paint forming numbers. The Year 1 children have also been very busy exploring place value in 2 digit numbers. We have been looking at the amount of tens and units in each number. We are also learning how to record numbers in words and jottings.

Homework – Homework is set on a Friday and needs to be handed in by the following Wednesday.  We can pick which homework we do each week from our ‘Pick and Mix’ system.  Homework is handed in and marked on a Wednesday, ready for the following week.

Oak Class have a spelling test fortnightly on a Friday and they have a spelling investigation in which to learn new spelling rules, on the alternate week.
