GOODBYE OXFORD CLASS of 2017 ! You have been amazing and we have had a wonderful adventure over the past 2 YEARS.

Members of Oxford Class who have achieved over and beyond ! Super Stars !!

Our 'Super Sports Day' efforts!

Acting again! We are enjoying literacy that is linked to a 1980's film - The Neverending Story

Another Pen Licence is awarded in Oxford Class this week - well done !

On Monday we did some acting and pretended to be three characters in our story - Varjak Paw. We explored how the characters interacted with each other.

Please take a look at our most recent learning letter

Well done to our Star of the Week for working more independently.

Our Literacy Wall shows some great examples of writing and also the new words that we have 'borrowed' from the story.....

So far we have made text maps and imitated the story of Varjak Paw. We love how exciting the adventure is and have been learning a lot of new vocabulary

We are really enjoying studying this book in literacy....

Well done to those children who have already brought in their 1980's homework project.

We have launched into our topic with looking at music and fashion of the 1980's

We really enjoyed learning to play the Steel Pan today. The tunes sounded great when we performed them!

During literacy we told the story of a poem through role play. The poem is called 'Night of the Scorpion'.

In maths we have made symmetrical 3D shapes using different materials

We really enjoyed our challenge to make cars that moved using magnets in Science Week!

Our latest learning letter.

Please take a chance to look at our latest learning letter.

In literacy we have been using role play to explore why characters act the way they do in stories. It has really helped our understanding and developed our skills of empathy.

Our Ancient Egyptian book corner is a quiet place to read, with information books and artefacts easily found to help us with our learning

Looking forward to a great year with Oxford Class.

Race into reading!



We are very pleased in Oxford class at how well the children are taking to their new found independence with their daily reading.  We are encouraging the children to choose their own books (within their capabilities) and to write a small passage about what they think about the story they have read.  This will not only show their level of comprehension but also highlight the types of genre that they enjoy reading.
