Welcome to Oak Class!
It has been a really busy term so far! We were really lucky to have a visitor come to our school and teach us how to behave around dogs. This was a really informative and fun morning! We loved Otis the dog! We have recently performed our last class assembly for this year! Our assembly was on the creation and it went very well! We have completed a sponsored run around the school grounds to raise money for our chosen charity (all the children did an excellent job!) We are looking forward to the life education caravan coming to our school so we can meet Harold the Giraffe again and sports day is just around the corner!
We have started a brand new topic this half term called "As Time Goes By!" This is an exciting topic all about life in the 1950's! So far we have researched a famous artist called Lowry. We have found out facts about his life and have looked at his different paintings. We have found out about the matchstick men in his art work and we listened to a song about Lowry (that used to be on Top of the Pops!)
We are now finding out about school life in the 1950's! We have looked at a 1950's classroom and found it to be very different to ours! We have enjoyed learning about how strict the teachers were and hearing stories about the milk! For our homework, lots of us were able to interview relatives who remember the 50's well!
In RE we read the creation story. We have created art work to show how God created the world in just seven days! We have also linked this work with our new Christian Value, respect! We have thought how we can respect God’s creation by not dropping litter and looking after the plants and animals.
