Welcome to Oak Class 2020
In Oak Class this year we have eight children. We have six girls; Ruby, Grace, Liliana, Jury, Poppy and Zinet, and two boys; Jack and Callum. The staff in Oak Class this year are, Louise (teacher), Ellie, Kate, Yvonne and John (LSA's), we also have Debbie and Pat (LSO's) who support us throughout the week as well.
This year every half term we will have a new topic. This topic will run through the activites that we do throughout the half term. Every week alongside daily literacy, maths and MOVE activites we will have; creative, music, movement to music, rebound, swimming, play skills activities, cookery, educational visits and PE. These activities will be tailored to each individual child, enabling every child to access the whole curriculum.
Week Beginning: 16-11-20
This week we have continued to work on colourful semantics, attempting to find who, what doing and what within our Frozen story. This week our literacy focus has been reading, the children have enjoyed sharing stories and matching pictures to the book, as well as continuing to develop their colourful semantics ability, identifying a boy or girl (who) and an activity (what doing). In maths this week we have continued to look at colour, most of the children are now starting to sort two colours and are successfully placing the coloured bears into the correct honey pot. In our creative session the children enjoyed using different winter coloured paints to create a wintery picture, adding Epsom salts as the final sparkle. In cookery the children enjoyed making coconut snowballs, they worked together to mix the ingredients and make their snowballs and then enjoyed the sticky mess they made while eating them.

This week we have continued to look at our story, Frozen and have enjoyed the different sensory elements as well as colourful semantics and matching. In maths this week we have been working on counting and finding the amount of objects, as well as continuing to practice recognising our colours. In literacy we worked on our communication, and this looked different for all of us. We have been using communication boards with varying amounts and size of symbols, communication books, as well as symbols to help us. In creative we used different coloured ice cubes to make a picture, we all enjoyed this and some of us even tried the ice, it was very cold! In cookery we made meringues, we all worked together to beat the mixture and then Vicky cooked it for us and we got to eat it for our snack. We have new music for our movement to music session and we are all enjoying the change and we have been completing a new PE circuit where we find different items to build a snowman and at the end we put it all together and make our very own Olaf. This Friday was children in need, the children got in the spirit and came in to school in their pyjamas. We completed different Pudsey Bear activities, we did a Pudsey collage, used our fingers to put spots on Pudsey's bandana and used different crayons to colour in a Pudsey mask. We then had loads of fun making cakes and eating them for snack.

We got orders in from all of the other classes in school and along with Maple Class made and delivered cakes for all of the classes. The children did really well delivering the cakes, walking to the different classes, knocking on the door and leaving the cakes outside for the class staff to pick up.
We also celebrated halloween in school this week. All the children in Oak Class dressed up and we had differetn halloween activities. We made chocolate apples and rice crispie pumpkins. The children also all made a pumpkin paper plate and enjoyed spooky number songs and stories throughout the day.

This week was our week at the supermarket. We enjoyed our art, painting our own supermarket front. We picked different colours and used different tools to make marks onto the page. During our literacy sessions we worked on colourful semantics, finding who, what doing and what from different pages in our story and sharing some of our favourite stories with different adults. In maths this week we carried on working on big and small, seeing if we can sort them into two groups.

Week 2 here we go! This week is Bakery week (my favourite week). We decorated cupcakes in our creative sessions and the children loved doing it so much that we did it twice this week. They used tissue paper, glitter, sequins and paint to make their individual cupcakes. During our maths sessions we did individually differentiated 1:1 activites based on big and small, we also do group maths sessions throughout the week. In literacy we focused on reading, doing shared reading activities as well as finding 'who?' on different pages. We especially enjoyed rebound this week, we went to the rebound room in pairs and worked together during the session as well as working on our own individual skills. Our cookery session this week was fun and we made ourselves some gingerbread men biscuits which we ate for our afternoon snack.

This was our first week back in school, we spent the week all getting to know each other. It was lovely to have all the children back in school. We started the week with six children and during the week we had our new friends come and join us and ended up as an eight. We spent our time getting to know the children and getting back into our routine. The children settled really well and picked up the routine again quickly.
This half term the topic is the highstreet. This week all our activities were based around The Post Office, some of the activities we completed were posting activities, mark making, and painting postcards. We did our first swimming session which all of the children enjoyed, it was good to get back in the pool and work on our movement and MOVE skills as well as individual swimming skills.
It was amazing to see all the children back in school and enjoying being back, myself and all the staff team are so happy to have all the children in and happy.
