Hard at Work

Since coming back in August everyone in the Oak class have been busy as usual.  We are so happy to be back together and also being able to share all our work on the blog.  We have all been successful learners and confident individuals getting back into school routine and building up our stamina for learning again.  Here are some photos of the work we have been doing so far;

Cameron, Jack and Sam are happy to be back at school with their friends.

We enjoy daily exercise which includes cosmic yoga and a 20 minute run / walk.  The running and improved stamina is getting very impressive.

We have been working hard on our time telling skills, matching analogue to digital. Also we have been doing some problem solving activities.


Our theme topic is the ‘Great Outdoors’, we have been enjoying taking part in all the activities related to our book, ‘A Camping Spree with Mr Magee’.

Throughout the week we take part in set games to encourage turn taking and interacting with our peers.
