Hi Everyone!


How are you all? What have you been up to this week?


I am sat writing this at school in our classroom. Mrs Patel and I have spent the day getting the classroom ready for when we return in September. It looks quite different with all the tables in rows and reminds me a little of the photo's that we've looked at when we compare our school now with a school in the past! Thankfully I'm sure that is where the similarities end as our classroom will look much brighter and more inviting.


I'm looking forward to seeing you all after the school holidays and finding out what you've been up to, seeing how much you've grown and how many the teeth the tooth fairy has collected!


Don't forget to keep in touch and if you have any photos that you would like me to add to our class page send them in. Please just add a note saying that I have your permission.


Have a lovely summer


Love from

  • practise counting in 2's, 5's and 10's
  • look at coins and money, understanding the value of each and making different amounts
  • go on a shape hunt
  • estimate using non standard measure-e.g. I wonder how many handspans the sofa is?         Compare- why did it take more handspans for you?
  • using positional language
  • prediction- how many..., how long..., etc.
  • time on an analogue clock 



  •  I spy 
  • tell your favourite story- this encourages good listening skills
  • ask questions about the story- have they understood? 
  • sing action rhymes- a favourite of the class is the pirate song
  • role play a scene from a favourite film or book
  • Grandma's shopping list- add an item each time
  • keep reading- books, comics, recipes anything at all!



As you are aware there are some people who are not as fortunate as ourselves and have had little to no contact with others during this difficult time.It would be so thoughtful if you could take a little time to write a letter to someone in this position and I feel sure it would lift their spirits and make their day. I have attached the document and information below.

Some of you have been sending photos with your emails showing me what you have been up to. I thought that if I enjoyed seeing them so much then so would your friends!



The month of Ramadan starts on 23rd April and is celebrated all over the world by our Muslim friends. I've added some activities and information for you to have a look at so we can all share the celebrations.

Eid al-Fitr

As the holy month of Ramadan ends our Muslim friends will be celebrating Eid al-Fitr. Celebrations may be a little bit different this year as we are still having to be careful. But I'm sure this won't be able to dampen spirits. 

"Eid Mubarak!" to you all. 

Saint George and the Dragon
Thursday 23rd April is Saint George's Day. Saint George is the patron saint of England. Here are a few activities for you to have a look at. Enjoy!
Can you help?

This week Saint Margaret's received an email from Bury & Rochdale Care Organisation asking the children from across Bury and Rochdale to draw rainbow pictures and send them in to help brighten up the walls in the hospital corridors. I know lots of you in Oak Class are very arty and and creative and might enjoy this, especially as it is to help others. Be as creative as you like, you could paint, felt tip or even use the computer! Below is the address for you to either email or post your pictures to. Have fun!

VE Day

Victory in Europe Day - also known as VE Day - celebrates the Allied Forces accepting the Nazi’s unconditional surrender from World War 2. The final document was signed on 8 May 1945 and this was when the first VE Day was celebrated. There were street parties and parades throughout the Western world - especially in the UK and the USA. More than a million people took to the streets in Great Britain, with the greatest crowds in London. The day was declared a national holiday with pubs opening late.

Although the war wasn't over everywhere for many people of both nations, VE Day signalled an end and gave them a glimpse of a future that was not entirely governed by a global war. And for the families who were lucky enough to be reunited with loved ones, it was a day worth celebrating.

P.E EdStart - Activity sessions will be released each Monday linked to the booklet through our social media channels (Facebook, Twitter and Instagram)
