Today Oak Class were met by Mrs Robinson on the field... she came with her guitar! Mrs Robinson sang a song, can you remember what the song was about? She also read a rather funny story. We all thought it was very cool Mrs Robinson could play the guitar and we hope she might teach us some nice songs in Year 1.

Hello Oak Class, 


Today we found out our new teachers for next year will be Mrs Ball and Mrs Robinson! We were a little bit surprised as we thought it might be Mrs Humphries who is the current Maple Class teacher, but we had a discussion about how teachers can sometimes move to different classes and year groups. We talked about things we already know about Mrs Ball and Mrs Robinson, they both teach in Hawthorne at the moment but they will be the new Maple Class teachers. Mrs Ball came and said hello at lunch time today and we're hoping to arrange a story time with them to get to know them a little better...


They are very excited to be our new teachers (because they've heard what an amazing, kind and hardworking class we are!)




Mrs Robinson speaks German                                                             Mrs Ball has a puppy!

This week Oak class have been measuring using cubes, centimetres and metres, learning new sounds in phonics and finding out about India! We also had a visit from Mrs Humphries who is the current Maple class teacher! Mrs Humphries read us one of her favourite stories outside. She teaches in Maple class where there will be a mix of Year 1 and Year 2 pupils. Although we couldn't visit our new classroom, we have been having circle times back in our Oak classroom, to share things we are excited about or apprehensive about moving into a new class.

This week we have been doing lots of counting, learning new sounds in phonics and learning about Australia! See the subject pages to follow some of the work we have been doing in school. 
This week is a hot one! In Oak class we have been keeping cool by learning about melting and freezing and we have been experimenting with ice. We have been checking our phonics sounds and recapping any that lots of us need to revise. In Maths we have been sharing out between groups. 
This week we have been doing halving and doubling in Maths using concrete resources and solving worded problems! We are learning new sounds in Phonics and we have been exploring the continent of Europe for our 'Around the World' theme. Please see pictures and activities we have been doing in class above!

Hello home-schoolers and Yellow & Orange bubbles! 


Above are some photos of what we have been up to a school this week as well as some of the resources we have used in class!

We have been working hard to keep up our amazing phonic knowledge and our reading and writing is progressing so much. We have explore flat and solid shapes as well as simple and more complex patterns. 


Best wishes, 

Miss Theobald

Hello Oak Class, 


Thank you to all of you who are sending in photos of your learning each week. It's fantastic for us to see all the lovely work you are doing and all the effort you are putting in to keep up with your learning :) Your photos really make us smile and we're so proud of you all! This week we are inviting magical creatures into our homes and gardens! You will have received a magic door in the post - see this week's writing activity to find out what you need to do with it! Keep reading for 10 minutes every day and practicing your phonics a few times a week. Have a look at your friends work on our Oak Class page - what activities have they been up to? This week we would like to see a photo of your writing activity.
