Hinning House Day Trip 


Today we went to Hinning house in preparation for our big overnight trip there when we are old enough. This meant we got to experience a little of what it would be like to go up to Hinning house and be away from home for a few days. We saw the wonderful scenery, and even got to go near the river! It was a fantastic mini trip for all of us in Oak class.

Bravery Week - Clip 'n' Climb


Today we got the chance to visit "Clip 'n' Climb" as a special treat for Bravery Week. We listened carefully to the introduction, got fitted for our harnesses and then got to have a go at the different climbing obstacles that they had! Some of us were very brave and managed to climb all the way to the top of the walls, and others were brave by having a go at the scariest obstacle - the leap of faith. We cheered each other on, and supported each other the entire time we were there - It is a place we would love to visit again. 

Bravery Week - A Visit from Dylan's Reptile Time


We were lucky enough to get a visit from Dylan, who came into Willow Grove to teach us all about reptiles, and other animals, as part of "bravery week".

Dylan taught us that sometimes animals that seem scary are actually friendly, and rather fun to hold! All of our class were very brave and we held the animals Dylan showed us - These included a tarantula, a hissing cockroach,and even a corn snake named Colin! Dylan taught us the things they like to eat and where they normally live, as well as how to hold them so we don't hurt them. 


Class reward trip to the park!

This week we were lucky enough to get to visit the local park. We got to use the scooters on the ramps, play on the swings, and even managed to catch the staff in a game of tig (we were it!).

The New Year 


Happy New Year from all of us here in Oak class. We hope you had a very merry Christmas - we all did!

We started our term by looking at the theme of winter in our english lessons. We made our own winter scenes, and created poems to go with them. We made sure to include plenty of snow in our pictures, and had lots of fun with glue, cotton wool and chalk.  



Winter Wonderland Visit

Oak class were lucky enough to visit the Winter Wonderland. We had lots of fun playing on the 'ice tubes', skating, and going on all the different rides. We even got to meet Santa!!

September 2019

Team Oak have been settling into their new class this term. The staff and children have spent a lot of time building relationships, working and playing together. As a class we have focused on our school value of Friendship. We made a paper chain of comments and thoughts about each other. We thought about all of the kind things we could say to each other to help us feel good. 

Getting to know each other in Team Oak

As part of our well being week we made sensory cubes. These cubes help us to regulate when we are finding things hard in school. 

Sensory Cubes

This term our topic has been 'Where We Live'. We have been thinking about where in the world we live, our homes and houses and our local area. We went to visit the Three Sister's Recreation Area to look at our local area to school. We enjoyed a nature walk as part of our science work and found lots of signs of Autumn in the forest. Luckily we took our wellies so the puddles were great to jump in! 

Three Sister's Recreation Area

Team Oak have had some visitors into school teaching us about teeth. We reminded ourselves of how many times per day we should brush and for how long. We also considered healthy and unhealthy snacks that we should choose and avoid. Thank you to Kelly and Ashley from Boutique Dental 23 in Ashton for coming to visit us.
