Welcome from Oak and Ash

Autumn Term 1 and Term 2

It has been a great to the year and it has been a joy seeing all the children smartly coming in everyday ready to learn.  In year 2, we are looking forward to a term ahead.  We are focused on our value of aspiration in our pursuit to be masters of our learning.  This term we will continue to develop our understanding of place value, addition strategies, using punctuation appropriately whilst also exploring the topic Wriggle and Crawl.  Thank you for your continued support. 

Ms Ibrahim and Mrs Lowe


Our topic for this term is Wriggle and Crawl

Grab your coat and wellies– we are going out and about on a minibeast hunt!

During this half term, we’ll head out to a woodland to identify minibeasts in their natural habitats.
We will write a guidebook for other children to use on a minibeast hunt.  We will draw sketches of minibeasts and create our own minibeast habitat.

At the end of our project will give us the chance to share our knowledge.  We’ll create a PowerPoint presentation, use scientific vocabulary to explain what we have learnt, display our artwork and perform our minibeast poems with musical accompaniment.
