Welcome to Oak Class!
Gosh, the year really is racing to a close now!
The week started off fantastically with our trip to Weston-Super-Mare on Monday. We began with a soggy but very enjoyable visit to the sand sculpture festival, where the children took part in a workshop to build a Minion out of sand and water. All children got stuck in and had a really good go at creating their sculpture as part of a team. The rain then stopped for a little bit and we were able to walk to the pier for some lunch and an ice-cream!
I know the children thoroughly enjoyed their Jump Up Morning in Year 1 with Mrs Grabham on Tuesday; they came back to me in the afternoon bursting with all the things they had been doing, and it was great to see them so excited about moving on in September - they are definitely ready for it now!
This coming week is Arts Week, and we will be looking at the geometric shapes and patterns found in Islamic art. In Maths, we are going to start thinking about odd and even numbers, and how we can work out if a particular number is odd or even... maybe you could ask you child to show you how it's done!
As always, please come and find me in the playground if you have any questions or concerns.
