Well done to Alexander from 5NA, in his homemade painted t-shirt, clapping and pan-banging for the NHS this, and every, Thursday. Continue to send your photos or videos showing your support for the NHS to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our topic at the moment is is commotion in the ocean and our children in school made a huge fish tank! The children made a rather large rainbow fish too - he’s fabulous at sharing his scales! We discussed behaviours we would will be taking to our new classrooms, such as listening, turn taking and of course sharing like the rainbow fish!
This week in Upper Foundation we have been learning about Little Red Riding Hood! It was wonderful to see so many children visit their local woods as part of their learning, and to ensure they explore the outdoors for their wellbeing.
Here are a few examples of how the children have used their creativity in exploring this week's topic - fantastic 'Grandma' disguises, creative maps of the route Little Red Riding Hood followed and amazing clocks!
In Maths, our focus was time. So many children played "What's the time, Mr Wolf?" and learnt how to make clocks to read time to o'clock and half past.
In Literacy, we were amazed at how well the children immersed themselves into the character of Little Red Riding Hood and wrote these beautiful diary entries...
A special Well Done to Sophia Hall, who has completed all her Magic 300 Key Words. Fantastic learning!
I want to extend a special THANK YOU to all the parents who are contributing so well to their children's learning and enjoyment of the topics. We love seeing how creatively you explore the topic and how happy the children are in doing what they enjoy with you at home.
Next week, we look forward to building bridges with the Three Billy Goats Gruff!
The Upper Foundation Team
Year 1 have had another fun filled week of learning.
Thank you to all the families for sending in such wonderful photos of the children. It has been lovely to see what our classes have been learning and exploring at home. The children have been very curious and creative demonstrating many of Oakfield’s 6 C’s through their activities.
We are really enjoying our Roald Dahl theme in English and the children seem to be learning a lot too. The children showed some of their lovely chocolate bar designs on the Teams calls with their class. They have been very creative using their imagination. We had a range of delicious chocolate bars from the Flying Ice Cream Bar, a Toffiollie, The Happiness Bar, the Police Van Bar, the Woof Woof bar, a gluten free bar for dogs and even a Rowan Wonka cake! Some children decided to replicate their chocolate bars by making them! Willy Wonka eat your heart out!
We are so grateful to all families for their efforts and creativity with supporting the children with their learning this week. There has been such a range of projects being sent to teachers. We have seen smoothies being made, portraits of the Queen for our London Topic, pom-pom crafts and games played outdoors. The children are working very hard.
We hope you have a lovely weekend in the sunshine!
Microsoft Teams meeting week 5:

The Year One Team
Year 2 have been completing English work inspired by the book 'The Day the Crayons Quit'. They thought about how the characters were feeling and recreated this in a freeze frame they sent to their teachers. Can you guess what emotion they are showing?
Roman these lands...
In Year 3, children have been learning about the Romans and in particular, the Roman invasion of Great Britain. A fierce Celt called Boudicca did not want to let the Romans rule so gathered an army together to fight back. Henry has created a Roman wanted poster for Boudicca and has even tea stained it and burnt the edges to make it look older and more authentic! And there's an amazing wanted poster from James featuring some incredible artistic skills!
Well done to Eddie who has been awarded a Roll of Honour for his wonderful Science work over recent weeks including these pieces on adaptation. Well done Eddie!
