Oak: Reception and Acorns
Welcome to Oak Class - Reception and nursery. Oak Class teacher is Mrs Wheeler.
We have a large and well resourced classroom, and daily opportunities for play based learning in our fabulous outdoor area.
We enjoy exploring our school grounds and local area and going on trips further afield. We also welcome visitors to the class – many of our parents have enriched our learning with their wealth of different experiences and talents.
Both year groups have a phonics lesson in small groups each day. Phonics teaches children the necessary skills to read, and to apply in their writing, the different letter sounds (phonemes) that combine to form words.
In Mathematics children learn first by using real or concrete objects to develop their understanding of number and quantity, and then by recording pictorially, before moving on to more abstract number stories.
We encourage parents to hear their children read as regularly as possible at home, and to make sure that reading record books are kept up to date.
Please ensure your child’s book bag is at school each day.
We celebrate and share children’s learning at home and also have regular home learning projects linked to our topic.
