Autumn term 2

 

This half term our topic is 'Celebrations'. We will be learning about different festivals and celebrations from different cultures such as Diwali, Christmas and Guy Fawkes. We will also be celebrating ourselves and special times in our lives so please let us know of any occasions which you celebrate with your family or community and we can share this in class.

Please look at the half term plan below to see what we will be learning!

Thursday 26th November - Today we enjoyed making robots from cardboard boxes. We had so much fun decorating the boxes and then engaging in role play with each other.

Friday 20th November - This week we have been learning about different festivals and celebrations. We used coloured rice to decorate a rangoli pattern to celebrate Diwali. We also made some handprints to start creating a piece of work for a celebration coming up soon. We will finish it next week so keep looking for updates!

11th November - Remembrance Day - Today we made poppies using red card and and black paper. We tore the black paper into small pieces and added to the middle of the poppy. We finished the poppy by decorating with red glitter. At 11am we sat in our circle time and took part in the two minute silence.

Friday 6th November - This week we have been learning colours through our fireworks activity. We used different coloured paints to make circles and then used our fingers to mix the paints to create the firework. We then added glitter. It was a little messy! We also enjoyed making marks in glitter during a handwriting session. We have enjoyed developing our gross motor skills in the outside area.

Autumn term 1

 

This half term our topic is 'All About Me'. We have an exciting few weeks ahead of us where we will learn about ourselves including what makes us special, body parts and the important people in our life. We will also be exploring our emotions and finding out what makes us happy or sad. Please look at the plan below to see what else we be learning this term!

 

The Oak 1 team are looking forward to working with you this year.

See the plan below to look at what we will be learning this half term

21st October 2020 - Dressing up and celebrating Black History Month

12th - 16th October - This week we have been using cubes to explore counting and matching equal sets of numbers. During a music session we enjoyed exploring the different sounds of instruments through tapping, banging and shaking. We have also enjoyed time in the outdoor area and we are become more independent with the equipment particularly with the bikes and the scramble net climbing frame.

5th - 9th October - This week we have been learning about 2D shapes. We made a collage of shapes from different materials including paper, felt and foam shapes. We also enjoyed engaging in our therapy sessions in the sensory room.

28th September - 2nd October - This week we have enjoyed developing our skills in the outdoor area and the dining room. We are becoming more independent in using cutlery to feed ourselves.

21st-25th September - This week we have enjoyed learning in our outdoor environment. We are beginning to engage in role-play situations. In phonics we have been learning the 'a' sound. We used the interactive whiteboard to practise the letter formation before practising on paper. We particularly enjoyed a new activity called 'shake shake' in our attention bucket session. We had to shake flour over numbers. It was a little messy!

Friday 18th September - Today was Art and DT day! We coloured rice with green food colouring to make a cactus plant. We also sprinkled sand on card to create a desert effect. Keep looking on the website for our finished work! In the afternoon we went to feed to school chickens. We enjoyed feeding them apples.

Friday 11th September - Oak 1 has settled well back into class. We also have two new friends! This week we have enjoyed taking turns in phonics to practice our letter formation. We have enjoyed going back to the sensory room and joining in with sensory circuits.

  • Your child will receive a reading book every Friday. Please take time to share a book for 5-10 minutes every day and make a comment in the reading record
  • Help your child develop their independence by encouraging them to become independent in everyday tasks e.g toileting, putting on their coat, washing their hands etc, If you need any advice please speak to a member of Oak 1 staff
  • It is important that your child understands the importance of keeping healthy. Please provide a water bottle with your child's name on. The pupils have access to their bottles throughout the day and we refill when necessary. You may also want to provide a healthy snack for your child to eat at snack time (no nuts please).
