Term 2

Welcome to term 2 in Oak Class. We have lots to look forward to this term. Here are some images of the classroom as a sneak preview!

Week 1


As it is the start of term, we have a new topic - time travelling to prehistoric times...The children created their own time lines to show the Stone Age, Bronze Age And Iron Age.  

Week 2


This week we started our Science topic - Light, shadows and reflections. The children did four experiments to find out what colour light is.


We have been starting to do column addition and subtraction, which the children have really enjoyed (see below for Ms Leigh's new maths tutorial video!).


For the Remembrance service at the church on Friday, we have made poppies to wear. Children have also started on their homework with some wonderful Stonehenge models brought in and we made our own stone age camps.

Week 3


This week, Oak Class enjoyed putting on shadow puppet shows in our Science lessons, as part of our learning about light and shadows. 


We had some interesting Stonehenge models brought into class by the children who have already completed their homework.


On Friday, it was 'Children in need' day and the children did a bootcamp!

Week 4


This week, children have been carrying on with their learning about the Stone Age. They have produced some amazing cave paintings on sheets, that are now hanging in our classroom, looking fabulous!


The children have really been enjoying their computing lessons this term. They have been using coding to create their own games!

Week 5


This week, the children have been making shapes and balances with their bodies in gymnastics. They were set the challenge to get into groups and balance on a prescribed number of parts of the body, decided by the roll of a dice!


The children performed more amazing shadow puppet shows and it is starting to look a little like Christmas in the classroom.

Week 6


This week, the children finished their learning about prehistoric Britain. Influenced by the Celtic theme, our teaching assistant Mrs Hood taught the children more about William Morris's designs - and they created their own jewelry designs. We also had a Stonehenge model brought in made out of cupcakes! That was enjoyed by all - delicious too!


Next week, we go back in time to the Victorian era - when the children will meet Queen Victoria...

Week 7


It is starting to feel alot like Christmas this week.


The children have had fun learning about Queen Victoria - she even graced us with her presence and held an audience with the children. 


We also all enjoyed visiting St Mary's Church to make Christingles. 

Week 8


As it is the last week of term, the children have had plenty of festive fun!


On Monday, they wrote some fabulous Christmas poems, based on the famous poem ‘Twas the night before Christmas’.


On Tuesday, the class had a chance to make festive shortbread with Miss Lucas and a fir cone wreath and pomanders with Mrs Hood.


We all enjoyed the Christmas lunch on Wednesday, with many thanks to Anita & Jemma our caterers.


From all the team in Oak Class, we wish you a merry Christmas and a happy new year. 🎄
