The Return of the Oak Class

We are all very happy to be back in school and excited to see what we can achieve this year.  This will be our best year ever, although when we had our class discussion we had a few confident individuals who said they were not ready for learning new things or hard work.  Very confident individuals to make their opinions be known, I am sure we will have plenty of fun and this will make them change their mind.


Fun Interaction in Oak

In the Oak class this week we have had a room full of confident individuals, who have enjoyed one another’s company to take part in a lot of different activities that involves us being together.  Lots of great friendships have been made within this class, it has been a week with positive interactions with others.  

We enjoyed taking part in our Summer Beach Party games and had a piece of Colin the Caterpillar cake to celebrate the end of term.

We sang and signed along to some of our favourite songs with Singing Hands Summer Gig.

Also we have been getting behind our country and becoming football ready! We have really enjoyed performing our movement exercises to Yes Sir, I can Boogie!



Global Goal 16

Peace, justice and strong institutions.


We voted for a class president and vice president to help with some helper jobs and be effective contributors in the class. We were able to make posters saying vote for and our name. We chose pictures for them and were  confident individuals able to hold then up for all the class to see. We voted using a ballot paper with pictures of everyone on it. We then counted the votes to see who won.


Sungazers POLO Day – outdoor learning

We have been completing lots of great outdoor learning activities for POLO day.  We enjoyed exploring the water wheel for science and playing games with water balloons.  We also had our snack outside and had fun with the parachute and making dens.

Confident Individuals – Power Off Learn Outdoors

Friday was POLO day and the Transition class threw themselves right into it. They were Confident Individuals taking part in a variety of activities. In the morning there was water play which involved throwing water balloons and spraying water onto a target. The target quite quickly became each other and the boys took part in a fun water fight. A water fight was one of their 50 Things to do in the Outdoors outcomes and each boy completed it well! Mr Nicoll was a major target throughout the battle!! The boys were also Responsible Citizens by ensuring that the area was tidy after all the water balloons had been thrown. The afternoon was much more calm when we turned our hand to Croquet and practiced hitting the ball towards the target. It turned out to be harder than we thought to hit the ball with a wooden mallet.


POLO Day Activities

*Confident Individuals    *Effective Contributors

We did some activities this week ahead of POLO Day. We painted patterns with water and watered our planter where we are growing onions, potatoes, carrots, strawberries, nasturtiums and sweet peas. Our gladioli bulbs are starting to grow too. We made symmetrical butterfly pictures in anticipation of making a large symmetrical floor pattern today. Today we also made a water wheel (which worked really well!) and created nature’s crowns.
