Welcome to Oak class

Hello! I am Miss Wheatley - Yates and I am the class teacher in Oak class.

Mrs Johnson, Mrs Talbot and Mrs Thomas will also be working with us throughout the year.


Our Topic for this half term is titled 

'Toy Time'

We will be thinking carefully about what Toys were like in the past compared to what toys are like now.


Things to consider before the start of our project...


Can you draw 4 different toys?

Do you know what toys were like in the past?

Have you ever made your own toy?

Does it cost a lot of money to make a toy?


We will begin by generating lots of questions for us to search, explore and find out the answer to.

As our project progresses we will update our class blog :)

We will be having a special visitor coming to school from Blackburn Museum to show us examples of toys from the past and to help us to create our own toy.



Take a look at the pictures below - what are they? What do they do? Make a prediction.

They are things from the past that children used to play with!



Please ensure that your child's book bag is in school every day.  Please read with your child every night and discuss what you have read.  You do not need to read the whole book at once. Reading books will be changed three times a week but only if your child has had two good reads of their book.


Homework is given out on a Friday and will reflect the work that the children have completed in class, it will then be collected in on the following Thursday.

If there is a problem or you have any questions about the homework, then please do not hesitate to come and speak to me about it. 

Physical Education

The children will have 2 PE lessons a week, including a specialist FUNDA session. Please, please ensure all your child’s clothing is clearly labelled with their full name. PE kits will be sent home at the end of every half term for you to wash. Please ensure they are back in school during the first week back.


 Thank you for your continued support with your child's learning.
