Welcome to Oak Class 

Hello, I am Miss Hibbert and I am the class teacher in Oak Class.


We are very lucky as we also have Miss Tudda working with us this year.


Our topic for Spring term is: 

'Animal Explorers'


To begin our topic we will be learning about the different animal groups. We will be investigating the diet of different animals as well as observing and comparing the structure of a variety of common animals. We will then move on to identify the location of hold and cold areas of the world in relation to the Equator and the North and South Poles. Following this we will be exploring the different animals which can be found there and comparing them. 


In Englishwe will be creating our own pieces of writing based around core texts. We will write a series of sentences using story language to create our own version of a story. We will also be extending our sentences using the conjunctions ‘and’ and ‘because’ to give further detail.


In Maths we will be learning all about the place value of numbers up to 50. We will be identifying and representing numbers using objects and pictorial representations. We will then be adding and subtracting one digit and two digit numbers using concrete objects and pictorial representations. We will be exploring the length and height and also the weight and volume using a range of measuring equipment. 




Oak Class have P.E. on Wednesday. Please ensure your child has a full P.E. kit in school with their names. Kits will be kept in school until the end of term. 


Forest School

We will have Forest School on a Tuesday morning this term. Please ensure your child comes to school with a warm coat, hat, scarf and gloves as they will be outside in the Forest school for the morning. 



Children will be given new reading books on Tuesdays and Fridays once a book has been read twice.  Please ensure you read with your child every night and leave a comment in their reading records to enable us to see how they have got on :). 



All homework will be set on 'Seesaw' on a Friday and will be due in by the following Thursday. 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 support.
