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 

'Down on the farm'

We will be starting with the question 'What would I find on a farm?'


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


Have you ever visited a farm?

What animals would you find on a farm?

What jobs are there to do on a farm?

What happens at a farm?


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 enjoying lots of new stories about farm animals having adventures and we will write our own animal adventure story. 


We will be learning all about different types of animals and the animal classes that they belong to. Have a look at the pictures below... how could you group and sort these animals? Can you make 3 groups? 4 groups?



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.
