Pie Corbett Talk for Writing

 

As part of our Literacy this term we have been looking at diary writing.  We have been concentrating on the Gruffalo's diary and added some actions to help us.  We have also innovated it by changing the time connectives, the adje​ctives and the past tense verbs.  

Dice Games in Year One!

 

We had great fun today playing some dice games with our parents.  We played 'Dotty Six' and 'Odds Wins'.

Outdoor Learning at Oakwood - September 2016

 

On Friday 30th September we started our day with an assembly outside. The brass group played beautifully and the children sang energetically. It was an invigorating way to start this sunny morning! The rest of the morning was followed by a range of outdoor activities and learning, this also included riding our bikes and scooters on the obstacle course!
