Welcome to Oak Class
Our Class teacher is Mrs Osborne and our teaching assistants are Mrs Bowles and Mrs Smith.
English – In English the children are encouraged through Morning Activities to recognise and write their name, and to develop their fine motor skills. Through taking home reading books for the first time the children are developing their awareness of print and illustrations in stories, learning to make predictions and comment on they see/hear/read. In Oak Class we are beginning to recognise initial sounds, and in child initiated sessions the children have been introduced to writing for a purpose; linking sounds to letters. We will be talking about what we are good at and what we can do now that we couldn’t as a baby. This will lead us to sentence building, starting with the words ‘I can’.
Maths - In Maths we have been focusing on numerals that are familiar to us. Through singing and games we have been practising to order these, counting forwards and backwards. We have enjoyed using natural resources to support our counting, numeral recognition, and forming of numbers. We will be working together to form a whole class number line! To put counting into a context and to relate it to our enquiry we will also be carrying out our own surveys and having a go at measuring our friends using handprints, using language such as ‘more’ or ‘less’, ‘bigger’ or ‘smaller’, ‘taller’ or ‘shorter’.
