It’s the last week of term! But this hasn’t affected Oak class’ focus; they have continued to work really hard in all areas of their learning.
This week they finished writing their own versions of Michael Foreman’s “I’ll take you to Mrs Cole”- A book we have all enjoyed reading immensely. Each child used dialogue and descriptive phrases to help build and guide their reader through their imaginative worlds.
Santa is not the only recent visitor to the school! This week the class were visited by the famous fossil hunter Mary Anning who travelled through time and space to answer the class’s questions. After a thorough Q and A session, Oak class learned about her early family life, the love she had for finding “curiosities” and all about her great find the Icthyosaur fossil. The visit helped the children write her biography.
Be warned: Time travel must do something to the faces hair follicles as Mary was a lot hairier this week than she looks in old photographs!
In Maths, we answered questions to reveal the punchline of some Christmas jokes. Ask the children 'What do you call an old snowman?'.......
We experimented with shadowing, in art, we hope you like them!
