Deer Class News Update ⭐️😊

Wow what a super week we have had in Deer Class. We have engaged in a wide range of sessions such as history, maths, English, first aid, science, P.E and road safety, we have had so much fun!

We loved history this week, we learnt about the Roman invasion and Roman life in Britain. We have been amazed by how many fantastic facts we can recall! We are experts in the Romans now! ⭐️ During this session we wrote or used colourful semantics to recall facts about the invasion of Britain. We also made an angry face for how the celts must have felt when the Romans invaded!

We loved magic bucket this week! This helps build our attention and listening skills. We looked at some amazing toys in the bucket and we also engaged in ice cream splat! 🍦

Over the last few weeks we have celebrated and explored Diwali! We made some beautiful diya lamps, completed some Diwali craft and learnt about Diwali and how people celebrate.

We loved our table cricket session this week, we remembered the positions we needed to play and we even remembered the game rules from last week. This week we split into teams and had a competition!

This week in maths we explored 2D and 3D shapes and we learnt to differentiate between the two categories. We were amazed with Deers shape knowledge!

This week a fire engine from Aldridge Fire Station came to visit Oakwood! This was a fantastic experience and we even got to sit in the fire engine like professional fire fighters! Here are our pictures!

We enjoyed our trip to Tesco this week, we collected items on our shopping list and especially enjoyed looking at all the Christmas items in the shops, this made Deer Class very happy! 🙈☺️

Our champion this week is… Joshua! Joshua has been engaging in a wider range of sessions this week, and Joshua blew us away in maths with his shape knowledge! Well done Joshua, super engagement! We are so incredibly proud of you! 😊⭐️

Deer Class Adventures ⭐️🦌

Wow! What a fantastic week in Deer Class. We have achieved so much all in one week!

We had a fantastic day on Friday celebrating Children In Need. We made Pudsey headbands to wear, we enjoyed a Pudsey themed tuff tray too! We even went to Oakpark in our Children In Need clothes and headbands! 😊⭐️What an amazing cause to support, this is a very special day that is close to all our hearts. ❤️

Over the last two weeks we have been learning about Remembrance, we have made some beautiful poppies to remember all the brave soldiers that fought for our country. We spent time reflecting and remembering those in the war efforts. We explored ways in which we pay our respects. We learnt that poppies are a special symbol of remembrance. We visited the Cenotaph in Pelsall to lay our Poppies on the beautiful display of remembrance.

On Monday we had a special visit from “A stars” where we completed a road safety walk within our local community. This was a wonderful opportunity to practice out road safety skills and danger awareness. We learnt 4 very important steps to helping us to cross, these were, “stop, look, listen and think”. We all listened very well and showed good knowledge of dangers. We are so proud of Deer Class for showing excellent listening skills and for being wonderful students of Oakwood out in the local community.

We also went to Pelsall Community Centre on the same day! We were busy bees! 🐝 We enjoyed being part of the community, we were so polite and remembered our manners very well.

This week we engaged incredibly well in our science session, where we learnt about plants and animals in our local environment. We enjoyed a classroom bug hunt! We ticked our scientist sheets when we found the correct minibeast. We even counted the legs on the minibeasts too! We had a fantastic conversation about our local environment and what animals and plants we might find!

We had our first table cricket session! This was a fantastic opportunity to develop turn-taking and sharing skills. We learnt the rules of table cricket and listened well to our instructor. It was amazing to see so many smiling faces! 😊

Our Champion this week is … Jayden! Jayden amazed us in swimming, he showed more confidence and listened well to his adults. It was fantastic to see Jayden determined to have a go. Well done Jayden! We are so proud of you! ⭐️✨⭐️✨
