Welcome to Oak Class
Our Class teacher is Miss Heard and our teaching assistants are Mrs Bowles and Mrs Smith.
During your child’s first term at Senacre Wood Primary School, our priority is ensuring that they settle happily into school life. We encourage them to explore their environment, trying out new activities. In Oak class, we pride ourselves on getting to know the interests and likes of the children; thus positive relationships are formed early on within the term. As the term goes on, there will be lots of encouragement to become increasingly independent, as managing our own needs is an important area too.
At Senacre Wood Primary School, the love of reading is explored from an early age. In Oak class, we will be sharing key texts and stories together, including favourites such as The Gruffalo and The Tiger Who Came to Tea. In this first term, we will be supporting your child to develop early reading skills, including handling and choosing books, reading the illustrations and retelling their favourite stories. We will also be playing a wide range of phonics and listening games, giving your child the best start in developing their phonological awareness.
Throughout this term, your child will have many opportunities to develop their fine motor skills, through a range of mark making, threading and pegging! We will also begin to explore our bodies, thinking about the different ways of moving around safely and confidently.
Your child’s mathematical knowledge will be celebrated through Child Initiated, where we will be using a variety of resources to enhance your child’s Number knowledge. As well as spending time learning about all things number, we will be thinking about sorting and creating patterns with objects and shapes.
