Welcome to Oak Class

The children are so happy to be in school and are really getting used to each other and the school routines. This week we have been playing lots of games to help build relationships and help develop a sense of class community. The children have really enjoyed playing class games such as Duck Duck Goose, Fishy Fishy and Bears Like Honey. All of these games are really good for developing listening and attention, turn taking and physical development. They have also helped us to learn each others names too.
We have spent some time talking about keeping ourselves and others safe. This includes things like being kind and caring to one another, keeping our classroom tidy so that we don't fall over toys and we discussed the importance of good hand washing.
Some of the popular activities this week were: using paintbrushes and water to make marks on the playground and riding the class scooters and bikes! The children are also really enjoying the Mud Kitchen and Craft Area!
The Year 1 have also started the whole school topic - Here We Are, based on the book by Oliver Jeffers. They have enjoyed exploring the world around them and have been searching for wonderful treasures around the school. We found blackberries, different leaves, acorns, pine cones, catkins, feathers, tomatoes, wild flowers, poppy heads and even potatoes! We have also enjoyed lots of time in the forest school searching for beautiful, natural goodies that we can describe and compare. We did have a little fire and warmed up some water for hot chocolate!
