Welcome to Oak Class, where your Teacher is Mrs Dodgson and your Teaching Assistants are Mrs Patel and Mrs Gorji.
Here you can find out about what we are doing throughout the year and some useful information and webpages.
Please get in touch through Class Dojo or by ringing the school office.
Reading is so important, especially in Reception, where your child learns the foundations for Reading skills that all other learning is built upon. We will change your child's reading book once a week. Remember, it is not just about your child reading the book, it is about spending time with your child reading the book together, asking questions about the story and pictures.
We expect the children to read at home to an adult 3 times a week so they can earn reading badges. Children need to read 10 books for a bronze badge, 14 books for silver and 18 books for a gold badge.
For more information, please visit the Phonics and Reading pages of our website, via the Curriculum tab.
We do PE lessons in the Hall every Wednesday and Friday morning. Children also have daily access to carefully planned and purposeful outdoor play. The outdoor provision is a place where our children can be fully immersed in all types of learning, as well as developing their gross motor skills. It offers space and therefore is particularly important to those children who learn best through active movement.
Please ensure your child's full PE kit is in school. It will be sent home each half term to be washed. Please name ALL items of clothing and the PE bag.
Our Autumn 1 Topics are as follows:
Who am I?
Who is in my family?
Similarities and Differences
Homework is sent out on a Friday and is to be handed in the following Tuesday. In Oak class the homework is related to the learning for the week to come, so it is important that we maintain the home and school partnership and you complete the home work with your child. This way you are contributing to your child's development and learning.
We will share photographs on Class Dojo of the different activities and learning experiences in the unit.
As well as all of the exciting learning experiences we have set up in the unit, we will carry out Phonics, Literacy, Communication and Language and Maths activities each day.
We look forward to creating memories and learning experiences together over our year together in Oak Class.
