Taxi, Taxi!

As part of our D.T theme, we have been exploring the concept of how wheels work? During our lessons this term, we have been investigating, designing and creating our own London taxis with a chassis, axles and moveable wheels. 


Exploring Maps

Oak class put their map reading skills to good use, by finding points on a map around school. Back in the classroom working in groups, we had a chance to create our own ‘bird-eye view’ maps.


Wiltshire and Dorset Fire Service

Oak class enjoyed their visit from the Wiltshire and Dorset fire service. We were given the opportunity to discuss and learn all about the many jobs they do. How to keep ourselves safe, at home and at school. 


Born in a Barn

Oak class really enjoyed performing in our Key Stage 1 Christmas performance.

Posting letters to Santa Claus

Oak class have been busy creating our own letters, to send to Santa Claus. This was a great opportunity to explore our sentence structure - using capital letters, full-stops and finger spaces. We also explored the format of a letter- using greetings, writing addresses and how to end a letter. We then enjoyed a short festive walk to the post box to post them to Lapland. 


Sharing our childhood timelines

We have really enjoyed Oak class sharing their childhood timelines, as part of our 'Childhood' theme. 


Funny faces

Oak class have been learning about self-portraits as part of our art focus. We had a great time collaging some really funny faces!

This term Oak class have been learning about the different parts of a computer, and how it works. Working with our friends, we practise using a mouse. 


Mix it up!

Oak class have been exploring colour mixing as part of our art topic this term. Identifying how primary colours can be mixed to create secondary colours. Great job Oak class!
