Welcome to Oak Class
Following the government announcement on Monday 4th January, we will continue our learning journey in a different, but fun way. We will be using Seesaw, which you are already familiar with, to provide home learning. Daily tasks will be set for Phonics, English, maths and Topic work.
All children have been provided with a home learning pack, such as a whiteboard and pen, books and pencils to ensure they have resources to complete the work set. Please take a photograph of any tasks completed and upload it to seesaw.
We will also be sending invites for live teaching sessions via Zoom, the links will be accessible via your child's Seesaw page.
If you have any concerns or worries please send a message via Seesaw, no matter how small the question and a member of the Year 1 team will respond.
If for any reason you need the Seesaw log in code to be re-sent, please contact the office via email or telephone.

Thankyou for your continued support and time in enabling us to ensure that your child makes the maximum progress on their learning journey.
Hello, I am Miss Hibbert and I am the class teacher in Oak Class.
We are very lucky as we also have Mrs Oxendale, Mrs Goodall and Mrs Talbot working with us this year.
The children in Oak Class have settled in extremely well and have already been working very hard!
Autumn term learning:
Our new topic for this term is 'Splendid Skies'
We will begin the term by exploring our body parts and the senses associated with them. We will then use our knowledge of senses to move on to exploring the different weather patterns we see throughout each season.
In English for the next few weeks, we will be focusing on our sentence structure. We will be looking at how a sentence is formed and the very important features of a super sentence.
In Maths this term we will be going back to basics. We will begin by looking at place value and gaining a clear understanding of number.
Our class read this term is Roald Dahl's 'Fantastic Mr Fox' and we can't wait to see what different adventures Mr Fox goes on.
Oak Class have P.E. on a Monday and Tuesday. Please ensure your child has a full P.E. kit in school. Kits will be kept in school until the end of term.
Children will be given new reading books on Mondays and these will be kept at home until the following Thursday. Books will then be kept in school over the weekend. Please ensure you read with your child on the nights that they have their books at home and leave a comment in their reading records to enable us to see how they have got on :).
From Friday 18th September all homework will be set on 'Seesaw'. Log in details will be sent home in book bags with your child before hand, so please keep your eye out for them.
Please do not hesitate to contact me with any worries/queries you may have.
Thank you for your continued support.
