Welcome to Oak Class
I am Miss Holgate and I have the pleasure of teaching Oak class this year. The class is supported by Mrs Hardy, who is a very experienced teaching assistant and with us every morning and Miss Cushion, who is an HLTA. We will also have additional support from Mrs Muchlinski . We have an open door policy, so if you have any queries or concerns, please do come in and speak to myself, Mrs Hardy or Miss Cushion.
Below are some of the routines and expectations which have already been established in our class.
The Oak Routine
All children are encouraged to be independent and responsible for their belongings and their work. Oak Class have their own cloakroom which is located in the entrance to the library mobile. The children can keep their coats, bags and their other belongings in this area. We have already started to brighten up this space with work and pictures. I expect the Oak children to keep this area as tidy as they can.
Oak children are required to have their games/PE kit in school on Tuesdays and Wednesdays as these are the days when they are timetabled for these activities. The children are encouraged to change and put their clothes in their bags so as to minimise the chance of misplacing them.
Your child will be expected to complete homework each week. This homework will be set towards the beginning of each term and your child will be able to choose from a list of activities. Homework is due in on a Tuesday and will be marked on a Thursday.
Please encourage your child to read at home every night to help their literacy skills develop. To support you with this we have a reading challenge reward display in class. To move forward in this challenge pupils need to read every day in one week and have read a minimum of twice to an adult, these need to be written in the reading record. Mrs Hardy will check reading records every week. When your child completes the reading challenge they will win a raffle ticket for the end of term draw.
At the beginning of the year we worked together to write our class charter and we work hard to follow our charter and show our values.
