Welcome from Oak Class

September 2021


Welcome to Oak Class! 


It has been a pleasure getting to know each of our new Oak classmates and to see the children so happy and building on friendships from last year. We have had a busy start to the term already and have delved straight into our learning…


Throughout the term, we will be developing our number and place value skills, alongside addition and subtraction within Maths; building and creating sentences based on interesting texts in English; investigating seasonal changes within Science; exploring fossil artefacts, dinosaurs and Mary Anning in History and much, much more! We will certainly be keeping busy!


Some key information for you as we start the new school year:


  • P.E. – Wednesday afternoon (Please wear suitable Longvernal PE kit into school on a Tuesday – remember if the weather is a little chilly, please ensure your child has joggers and a jumper/fleece).


  • Forest School – Thursday afternoon (Please wear suitable Forest kit into school on a Thursday – remember to bring waterproofs/overalls with you, as well as ensuring welly boots are in school.  Please note, long sleeves are necessary for time in the Forest to protect arms). 


  • Homework across Key Stage One, will be given out on a Friday and will be due in on the following Friday. The spellings will be stuck into reading journals so they are readily accessible for practising. Homework will include spelling practice, reading (at least 3 times a week) and a session on Doodle Maths. Logins for this are found in the front of your child’s reading record. It is expected that you will support your child with their home learning. 


If you have any questions or would like to chat, please feel free to catch me at the beginning/end of a school day. I will do my upmost to help support you in any way that I can. 


Thank you for your continued support. 


Kind regards,


Mrs R. Chilcott-Dean.
