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.
Every morning the children are heard to read by our lovely 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.
Each term we learn through a different theme. This is changed every three weeks. We enjoy sharing stories linked to each theme, bringing the books to life. Throughout the school year we learn about celebrations and festivals, recognising and celebrating our differences. During our focused phonics learning time the children work hard to learn their letter sounds, words and to write sentences ensuring they form their letters correctly. In our daily maths sessions the children complete challenges with number, shape, space and measure. They are encouraged to be independent critical thinkers. 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. Please also look out for information on our class dojo page as we update this every Monday!
