Class Teacher: Jess Hatch
Welcome to Oak Class one of our Key Stage 2 classes here at Littlegreen Academy.
Oak Class have enjoyed lots of fun activities to celebrate the start of the year. We have played some conversation games to find out a bit more about each other and the pupils have all been very accepting of each other as individuals.
We began our topic of Inventors, Explorers and Heroes by creating some inventions using only marshmallows and spaghetti! Some pupils were incredibly ambitious with their designs and created amazing structures.
In English, we have started work on our story for this term, ‘Grandad’s Island’ by Benji Davies. This is a story about a boy and his Grandad going on an adventure and we have used our prediction skills to work out what might happen in the story and read between the lines to suggest what the characters might be thinking and feeling.
This week we have taken part in RE day, where we recreated the story of the Good Samaritan using stick puppets. We learned all about how to be kind to each other and courageous enough to do the right thing.
Oak class have had a fantastic start to 2022!
In English, we have started our new book “I Swapped My Dad for Two Goldfish” by Neil Gaiman and we have enjoyed looking at the interesting illustrations and coming up with different ideas about what we could swap, like a pencil for a gorilla?
We have started our new topic, ‘All About Me’ and have already been thinking about things that we want to achieve and are proud of. We have also started learning about the human body and how to keep it healthy by eating a balanced diet and exercising.
This term Oak class are lucky enough to be going swimming at Redwood Park Academy and our first session consisted of lots of splashing and having loads of fun. We hope that we will be able to improve our swimming skills throughout the term.
