Hello and welcome to the Mighty Oak! We are a small cohort made up of Years 3 and 4. Our class is taught by Miss Creed and we are lucky enough to have fantastic support staff. Our class is full of learning, laughter and love.
Our P.E days are on Tuesday and Wednesday. On P.E days we come into school in our P.E kit and stay in them all day. Please note that P.E kit is blue jogging bottoms/shorts, blue hoodie, white tshirt and trainers. All long hair must be tied back and earrings removed or covered.
Our main communication is through class dojo. Parents and teachers are able to communicate via dojo message Monday-Friday 8am-6pm. There is a weekly roundup on dojo, where pictures and snippets of what we have been learning are shared with parents. In Oak, we work towards a collective dojo total,the children then receive a joint reward when this total has been met.
Children are expected to read at home to an adult at least three times a week. 1 dojo every time the child's diary is signed by an adult. When the children achieve 100% on an Accelerated Reader quiz, they receive a stamp. 12 stamps = a special prize out of Mrs Barden's basket!
Our class approach homework a little differently to the rest of the school. We have topic based homework and KIRFS (see below) practice. This will be uploaded onto the website termly. Families then have the freedom to choose the activity that suits them with the expectation that at least 12 pieces of homework are completed by the end of the term. 1 dojo per homework completion.
In the Through the Ages project, your child will learn about three different periods of British prehistory: the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age. They will discover terminology relating to time and sequence dates to make a timeline. They explore the changes to people, homes and lifestyle throughout the different periods and investigate examples of prehistoric settlements, monuments, burials and artefacts in detail. They will also study how technology improved over time, including how the discovery of different metals changed the way that people lived.

Spring term has been incredibly busy for Oak! We took part in the DASMAT sumdog challenge and WON! We had half a term of forest school where we made dens, created mud mountains and went on a scavenger hunt. Sing up came and taught us some brilliant songs that we throughly enjoyed performing at Bedford Corn exchange with other schools around the area. We also went on our residential which was incredible! The children's favourite part was the caving followed by the night easter egg hunt.
