What we have been learning 2023-24

Summer 2 Learning

We learnt about the history of Pride month, and the flag. We then made colourful hearts and celebrated our differences.

To introduce our new English topic and book ‘Cloud Tea Monkeys’ we learnt where tea comes from and even got to taste some different flavours of tea!

Our design brief was to make a moving toy for a KS1 child using a CAM and a follower. We researched different movements, before designing, making and then evaluating. 

Virtual school visit from the author SF Said. Oak class loved hearing about how he became an author. Look out for his books in your local library or book shop! Miss Kirk would love to hear if you read any of them.

This term we are learning about the Ancient Greeks. We all came dressed up as Ancient Greeks and had a fun day! We made wreath crowns, learnt dances and even had a Greek feast!


Have a look at all our photos below.
