Oak Class


Welcome to Oak Class 2022 -2023

Oak Class is the home of pupils in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 and is always buzzing with interesting activities. We really enjoy outdoor learning and take every opportunity we can to get outside! We love PE and we have these lessons together - taught by sports specialists twice weekly. Our daily maths lessons (we use White Rose, and Classroom Secrets) and phonics and spelling lessons (we use Little Wandle Phonics and No Nonsense Spelling) are in small groups. We do lots of writing, not just in English lessons but in other subjects too. We are enthusiastic researchers in our history and geography lessons. We love singing and we especially enjoy our music lessons with music specialist Mrs Davies. Our classroom has lots of things to help us learn: a class library with comfy cushions; lots of banded reading books, dictionaries and atlases; practical resources for maths; a trolley of laptops and all kinds of art and DT materials. We are a great team who enjoy having fun and learning together!

Teachers: Mrs Wortley

Teaching Assistant: Mrs Peeling and Mrs Thomas
