Due to unfortunate weather circumstances and a busy week of Christmas nativities and excursions, we have been unable to change the books this week. These will be changed again on Monday. If there is any need to have these changed urgently please come and speak with me.
I apologise for any inconvienence.
The children brought home a sheet about festivals and celebrations in their families - thanks for the responses I have received. Please look at this with your child and help them to complete it.
With the weather getting colder, please ensure that your child has some jogging bottoms in their P.E. bag and that they wear a long-sleeved top to school that can be used for Outdoor Games sessions.
I hope you all have a lovely week,
November 3rd 2017
This week in Oakwood our students have really enjoyed learning about....
English - This week in English we have been discussing the exciting things that we have been doing in half term and practising our sentence writing. All of the students have been working really hard and remembering the way to create a perfect sentence. Capital letters, finger spaces and a fullstop. I am really impressed with the progress all students have made since the start of year one.
Maths - This week in Maths, we have been learning about addition. We have been learning about how to add groups of numbers up to 20, by using the method of counting on and regrouping. The students have been engaging in these tasks by using concrete objects and through practising recording in our work books. The number formation in our class has drastically improved and students are becoming more and more confident everyday in their work.
Topic - This week in Topic, we have been learning about the importance of being safe during halloween and bonfire night. We had an assembly addressing this issue at the start of the week, understanding how to celebrate these events in a way that we are safe and can have a brilliant time. We have created our very own bonfire night safety posters, that address ways to keep ourselves, our families and our pets safe while we enjoy this fun occasion. All students produced very sensible and well thought out posters, which very clearly showed exactly how we could be safe during these celebrations.
This week, we also achieved something very exciting in our class! We worked very hard on our listening, our work effort and our lining up and due to these amazing efforts, we have won C.O.W to have in our classroom this week. C.O.W is a lovely stuffed animal that the children can all enjoy, she represents the Class of the week. All students have worked so hard, I am very proud of every single one of them! Well done Oakwood!
This coming week we have a book themed week on its way, with plenty of fun and engaging book themed activities happening in our classroom and our school. Remember to read a bedtime story and fill out the check slips every night for your child's chance to win a five pound book voucher to spend at our book fair! Also coming up this week is book at bedtime, get ready for a delicious hot chocolate to warm you up and listen to a fun and exciting range of stories. This is a wonderful event and I really encourage you all to come along and enjoy a book at bedtime!
Look forward to seeing you there!
