Welcome to Oak Trees!
The Teacher in Oak Class is Mrs Mackononochie who is closely supported by Mrs Esterling (Teaching Assistant).
Oak Trees is a mixed age Year 3 and Year 4 class. Everyday we learn about subjects that will help us through life, including Maths and English. We learn to appreciate God's world in all its beauty. We follow a rolling program of topics that enable us to ensure that children do not encounter the same themes twice, whilst ensuring that the knowledge and skills for each subject are taught. The themes used are broad enough for the children’s own interests to be incorporated within them, thus making their learning more personal and relevant. The children read some of their own prayers before lunch and at the end of the day. Every Friday we celebrate our learning. It really is a magical experience being in Oaks class, marvellous!
An Autumn Term visit by the Year 8 Maths Ambassadors took place today!
This has become a termly link with the Maths department at Cranborne Middle School who came to help us learn more about Maths Investigations. We took a very simple string of consecutive numbers and tried to arrange them in Magic V's. We shared our findings on a learning wall created for us by Mr Hilder (CMS Maths leader). Our thanks to them all for giving up their time to help us...it was brilliant to meet familiar faces having worked on similar projects last Year. This was a perfect example of collaborative working between younger and older children which seemed relevant during 'Say No to Bullying' week.
