Welcome to Oak class

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

Miss Hall, Mrs Goodall and Miss Pugh will also be working with us this year.

I am very much looking forward to seeing you all enjoy the challenges of Year 1!

Our Topic for this half term is titled 'World Kitchen'

We have chosen to study the country Italy!

What is the food like in Italy?

What is it like to run a restaurant?

We will be trying to answer this question and we will be using images, video clips and first hand experiences to help us.

We will be studying the country, the food and places of interest throughout this term.

Pondering Points:

How different is the weather in Italy compared to here in the UK?

Can you name the capital city?

Do you know the name of any special buildings in Italy?

What language do they speak in Italy?

Does everybody eat the same food in a restaurant?

Please join us in school on Friday 16th March at 1.30 pm for Oak's Pizza Parlour!


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.
