Oak Class - YR and Y1

Welcome to Oak Class!

Learning from home


There are many things children can do at home to keep up their super skills. 

I recommend one Literacy/phonics based activity and one maths based activity per day as well as daily reading. All children have a Teach Your Monster to Read account which is a useful way of revising their phonic knowledge. All year 1 children also have a Numbots account which they could access regularly too. 


Please keep practising the phonic sound flashcards as well as the high frequency flashcards. 


On top of this I have collected some resources for you to choose from. Please do not try to do everything.


Our sport coaches from Next Level Sports have informed us that they will be adding daily fitness based fun activities on to their Instagram, Facebook and Twitter accounts: NEXTLEVELSPORTX


Please keep scrolling to also find 100 things to do indoors.


Keep healthy, keep safe and have fun!






It is coming up to Easter, Ringo's favourite time of year... he's been trying to steal my mini eggs already!! Use the PowerPoints below to learn about why we celebrate Easter, and there are some Easter activities too. 

Me and Mrs Harrod LOVE the Easter crafts we would normally be doing this week so I have put them below as well. Can you make an origami bunny? Try the weaving crafts- all you need is one of the templates below (or draw your own) and strips of coloured paper- if you haven't got any coloured paper, why not colour some strips of paper in your favourite colours? 

White Rose Hub Maths Home Learning

In school we use White Rose Hub for our Maths learning. They have 5 lessons per week (for the next few weeks) each with a video tutorial. This is an excellent resource for home learning  for each year group. 

Write a diary

This is a very strange time for everyone right now. Why don't you keep a diary of what you have been doing? Include photographs and drawings as well as your super writing. I would love to see them when we are back at school and they will be good for you to keep to look back on. 

In our phonics lessons, children regularly enjoy the flashcards feature and the many games available on Phonics Play. Access to this is now free with the username: march20 password: home

Charanga Music at home

On Friday afternoons Oak class LOVE their music sessions! They can now access Charanga music at home. They all have their own log ins.

Username: 2436 (+first 3 letters of their first name followed by first 3 letters of their surname)

Hamilton Trust have produced some home learning packs for year 1 children. They include daily lessons for both Maths and English they will be continuing to add resources as the weeks go on.

Happy new year!

Happy 2020, we hope you all had a great Christmas, we can't wait to find out about what you have been up to!


For the first week back we will be taking part in the whole school Take One Picture week. We will be using Self-portrait with Thorn Necklace and Hummingbird by Frida Kahlo. We will be looking at what makes us special and unique and using the book Elmer to create a class art collage made up of our own self-portraits. 


Our Spring term topic is On the Farm. We will be having lots of fun learning about farm animals and farms around the world. We will end our topic with a trip to Stonehurst Farm which is a fantastic, traditional farm... it is Mrs Harrod's favourite ever trip! 

Please find our topic web for Spring term below. 

Blackberry picking in the woods and making blackberry and apple crumble

On Thursday we went into the woods and picked some juicy blackberries. We all had great fun! Back in class we did some big counting, we counted out 100 and then used that to estimate that we had picked around 700 blackberries! We also picked some apples (with Mrs Harrod's help!). Then on Friday morning we had a lovely morning using our freshly picked ingredients to make blackberry and apple crumble. They smelt delicious! Please enjoy the pictures below. 

Autumn Term


Welcome to all our new children and welcome back to the grown up year 1s! We are very excited to get started with a brand new school year and hope you've all had a lovely summer, I am very excited to hear all about what you've been up to! 


After a few weeks settling into school, we will begin our Autumn term topic which is Where we live. We will thinking about our homes and where we are in the UK then we will be comparing it to lives around the world. Our first book that we will be using will be Stick Man by Julia Donaldson . Please find the topic web for Autumn term below, giving a broad outline of what we will cover in Oak class.
