Welcome to Oak Class!



Mrs Hanson - Teacher



I am the Oak Class teacher and together with Ms Smart we aim to create a stimulating and inviting environment for your children to explore and learn in. 


Welcome to Oak Class! My name is Mrs Hanson and I am the Oak Class Teacher.


In Oak Class we will be building on the work and learning that your child has already done in lots of interesting and exciting ways.  Should you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us.

Monday 26th September




Good Morning!


I hope you all had a pleasant weekend. I can't believe we are on week 4 already! The children have coped amazingly with the changes in routines and have settled in really well. I am very impressed with the enthusiasm of our class, they really are a pleasure to teach! 

In Geography this half term we are looking at Blackpool. If you have any photos old or new of any of the features or activities that we do at a costal resort could you please send them in for us to share? I am waiting for my mum to send a delightful photo of myself looking very nonplussed next to a rather scary Mr Happy- the irony!


As always please do not hesitate to contact me should you have any concerns or queries


This week Year 2 children will start to go Hawthorne with their classmates for maths. Miss Smart will be going to support them. Please see Hawthorne's class page for their learning objectives


Year 1 will be learning to

  • counting forwards and backwards from any 2 digit number
  • recognising numbers to 100
  • understanding place value (which is more/less)
  • partitioning 2 digit numbers
  • writing addition sums



We have at last read the whole book! The children have really enjoyed this story and we have had some very thoughtful discussions about the journey of the character. As the children have worked so hard I thought it might be nice to have a party (like in the story) to celebrate. On Friday it will be a non uniform day for the children. They will not have PE but instead will be playing traditional party games in the hall.  


We will be

  • learning the repeated part of the story
  • practise retelling the story to a friend
  • creating a story board
  • writing the story including some of the repeated phrases

Over the weekend Louis dressed up like Halibut Jackson and tried to blend into the background, Great job Louis!

A little information about Oak Class


Oak Class drop off time starts from 8:45am to 8:55am for a prompt start to the day.

Oak Class collection time is 3:30pm  

The children will come and leave school from the main entrance next to the office and walk through school to our classroom

We will l be continuing to encourage your children to wash their hands more regularly.


Our break times are:

Breaktimes: 10.00am - 10.15am and  2.15pm - 2.30pm

All of these things will be explained carefully to the children when they come in.


Homework will be sent home on Friday to be returned no later than Tuesday. The activities that we send are designed to support the learning that has been done in class during the week. Your children will need support to complete them.


Spellings will be sent home on Wednesday for the test the following Wednesday. 


PE is on Tuesday with coach Leon and a second session will be on Friday. We are asking you to send your children in on PE days in their PE kit as getting changed can cause lots of lost clothes issues! Please can you make sure all items of clothing, especially jumpers, cardigans and coats are named.
