Children have been learning about the appropriate way to sit and eat at the table, to prepare basic meals like to morning snack, how to communicate their needs at the table as well as ways to help them understand table manners. During cooking and nutrition sessions children attempted to copy actions, e.g. spooning ingredients into a bowl to make a cake and demonstrated an awareness of the purpose of simple kitchen equipment and safe ways to handle kitchen utensils. 

Cooking and nutrition

Welcome to Oak 2- Summer term

In Oak 2 this term  children are learning about a range of common animals, they describe simply what they have seen an animal do or eat, e.g. by saying the word, picking a picture, imitating the action or noise. They are also going to match pictures of infant animals to adult animals, givinganimals more than one attribute, for example a bird has feathers and flies. Children will notice that some animals have similar features, e.g. they will be able to point to the eyes/mouth of different animals. Children will be working scientifically by asking questions about a new or unfamiliar animal, naming a single property of an animal, looking at a collection of various animals and giving a property to classify them.

Oak 2 we have been reading the ‘Handa’s surprise story’ as part of our topic, the children used their predicting skills to try to guess what the surprise might be. Then we talked about what was the best surprise someone organised for them and the children came up with some lovely ideas for presents that they would get if they were to surprise their friends. The children have also tasted some of the fruits from ‘Handa’s basket’ and as they were blind folded they used describing words to talk about each fruit they were tasting. A very popular fruit was the pineapple as most of the children said it was their favourite.

In Oak 2 class we teach explicit, systematic phonics using a newly adopted phonics program, Letterland. Letterland is a unique, phonics-based approach to teaching reading, writing and spelling . The Letterland characters transform plain black letter shapes into child-friendly characters who live in an imaginary place called Letterland. Simple stories about the Letterland characters, explain the alphabet so that children are motivated to listen, to think and to learn. Letterland is a multi-sensory approach to learning. Children will be introduced to alphabet letter shapes and sounds, expand vocabulary and explore phonemic awareness while having fun!

15th June- HOMEWORK 

This terms' topics were: Plants, flowers mini beasts and Transport. Children learnt about the physical characteristics of a spider/ earthworms and how their attributes help them survive in the environment. The children have planted their own sunflowers, described and compared the structure of a plant and of a tree, observed how plants grow. They have used their observations to suggest what happens if they leave the plant in the dark.

Then we looked at ways we travel around the world, they identified where vehicles travel and compared old and new types of transport.

Science week

 

During Science week children in Oak 2 have been investigating and researching  sea creatures, looking at how fish breathe and predicting whether the straw will float or sink when we attached paperclips to it. 

We had parents in for the open afternoon, children made some fairly accurate predictions and came up with some conclusions during the 'How fish breathe' experiment : we used both  tissue paper and coffee filter to experiment which made the best gills. We found out that the tissue paper kept both the air and the water in but does not allow water out, this would cause the fish to have too  much water in its body and drown.The coffee filter allowed the water to stay inside of the body while letting the water go back out into the ocean. This means the fish can breathe and does not have too much water in its body.

We also made our own submarine window and sea paper clip creatures.

SPRNG TERM 1

The children in Oak 2 have been investigating 'People who help us' this term.They really enjoyed finding out interesting facts about the job and the equipment the fire fighters use from a REAL firefighter. They wrote him a thank you card, they also dressed up as firefighters and then they worked hard to make their own fire engine. We explored other jobs such as doctors and nurses, teachers and police officers and talked about their role in our community.

Next we looked at 'Superheroes', their character traits and super powers. We also read about 'Supertato', the fabulous character who captures the 'Evil Pea', the mean character who was about to destroy all the vegetables in the supermarket. The children made their own 'super potato' character and explored healthy eating by identifying and sorting fruit and vegetables.
