Hello and welcome to Oak Class!

This year, we have had an exciting classroom move.

What was the year 6 is now home to the Oak Class. A long with a range of new learning areas to suit all our learning needs.

The Forest:

Oak and Acorn classrooms

The Brach: a cooking/messy learning environment.

The Bough: A quiet learning space

The Sensory Are: for physical and sensory needs

The Library: for 1:1 reading sessions with a selection of books for independent reading sessions.

Within the new learning areas, Oak children have to opportunity to explore and develop in various ways. We will also be working closely with the Acorn teachers to further expand our learning opportunities.



Mrs Brighouse will be with us in the afternoons and Mrs Moore will be leading cooking sessions with the children on a 2 week rota.


P.E with Miss Donoghue and Miss Scott/My Dyer

Please remember to come into school wearing your P.E kits!


Sent out on Friday to be returned by the following Wednesday.


All children should be reading each night at home and have it recorded in their reading records.

Year 6:

As 7 of our pupils enter year 6, some of us are beginning our SAT’s preparation and all of us are getting excited for our end of year trip to Robinwood!

Thank you,

Miss Donoghue
