Oak children are based within the foundation unit playing and working together with the Acorn nursery children. We have a fantastic foundation unit team, all who would be happy to have a chat with you and answer any questions you may have about either your child or their learning for this term.
Every morning the children are heard read by our lovely parent volunteers, we really appreciate the time given to support us with the children's reading. Together we share books, looking at the front cover, talking about the story setting and characters. We also chat about what has happened in the book! We would like to encourage you to also hear your child read and learn their keywords at home.
This term our theme is 'Woodlands' we are learning about the animals, wildlife and trees we may find there. We are thoroughly enjoying sharing stories linked to this theme, bringing the books to life. This term we will enjoy sharing the books 'Going on a Bear Hunt', 'The Gruffalo' and 'Stickman'. We have been on a nature walk, looking at our environment and observing how it changes as we move into autumn. The children have retold the story 'Going on a Bear Hunt' using lovely language and have loved acting it out. During our focused learning time the children have been working hard learning their letter sounds and practising forming their letters correctly. We are so proud of their hard work! If you would like to give your child further practice with phonics you may wish to go to the 'Kid's Zone' on our website and play some games together. You can even vote for your favourites!!
