A last few words.....

I just wanted to say a big thank you for all of your support and wonderful gifts. Teaching in                   'Outstanding Oaks' was immensely fun and the children are a real credit to you and to the school.

Here are a few pictures from the ' Leavers Assembly'



I cannot believe how fast the weeks have gone. This week we have done some fantastic writing and are still continuing with our Maths. Some of us have learnt Roman Numerals and my group has continued with addition. Oaks have had Science every morning this week and we have been investigating rocks and soils. We have also been busy completing the banner for the Flower Festival, this is now up in the church.


We said 'Thank You' to Mr Barrett for all his hard work over the year with Oaks and our very talented violinists performed for the school on Friday. Well done to you all. If you are interested in your child continuing with this or another instrument, please come in and see me.


This coming week- Year Four Leavers Assembly- 9.15 in the church.




Flower Festival July 2017

Romen Numerals

Practise your Roman numerals with this catchy song! :))

Another fun packed week. A special mention to the Year 4's for their Transfer Day. A good day had by all. There were some happy but tired children. The Year 3's had some fun on Friday as we did some Forest School's with myself, Mrs Hand and Mrs Dinan. 

We have completed our landmarks of France and the children have researched and designed a postcard. They are GREAT and currently hanging in the classroom. Please come in and have a look if you have time.

This week we have looked at French food and designed our own menu's. We planned our stories in English. We used a website to inform us and challenged ourselves to solving food chain problems. In Geography we are still looking at compass points and co-ordinates.

Next week, we are finishing our display piece for the Flower festival and planning and rehearsing the Leaver's Assembly.

Please note that if you were in the BLUE TEAM on Sport's Day, it is MUFFTI DAY this FRIDAY 14th JULY.smiley

Another busy week!  Well done everyone for all your efforts and great sportsmanship shown on Tuesday at Sport's Day. Outstanding Oaks have been busy completing their flowers for the Flower Festival in two weeks. In Maths, some of us have been looking at symmetry, whilst my group have looked at place value. In French, we have looked at and researched different landmarks in France. We then used our facts to write a postcard. In Geography, we are continuing to develop our knowledge of compass points and reading directions. In Science, we have focussed on habitats and causes of extinction.

 Three week left, keep up the hard work and remember our school values. At a time of great change it is especially important to;  talk, share worries and look out for each other.

Open The Book on Wednesday last week. Well done to our performers.

Well what a fantastic week had by all. Well done to the YR 4's who all behaved brilliantly and brought home Mr and Mrs Hill in one piece. It was lovely to see you all on Tuesday evening.

The YR 3's had a very busy and action packed week too!!!

We cooked cakes and biscuits and sold them for our charity 'Shelterbox ' We just need to total up the money and announce how much we raised in assembly this week.  A special mention has to go to Roman and his family for bringing in extra supplies for us to sell. Yum!!! Thank you.

We also used all our knowledge about castles to recreate a castle for Saplings. The children worked really hard on this and they enjoyed sharing this. Please take the time to have a look at the photos.

What a busy week!! No homework set this week as our Year Four's have PGL. We have continued with our trebuchets, the second phase. Pictures included. Well done to all those who took part in both the assembly performances this week-  'Open The Book's'  and in  'Celebration Assembly' We have continued with Robin Hood story writing this week and now completed shape in Maths.

Good luck to all those who are having a go at the Readathon.

Have fun Year Four's at PGL, I hope to pop in one evening to see you all.

This week, Year Three's are going to sell some biscuits and cakes on Tuesday and Wednesday to raise money for our chosen charity - Shelterbox. Please bring in some pennies to support this.






I hope that everyone had a good half term, we were lucky with the weather!

Oak Class have already made a good start with our continuing topic of shape in Maths and we have already done some AWESOME writing in English. Our Robin Hood stories are building up to a fantastic climax! 

In History, we have been looking at a deadly weapon - the trebuchet. We have had great fun with lollypop sticks and elastic bands this week. It is really good to combine all subjects in our learning and we will have combined a little; English, Maths, Science and Technology in this learning. In French this  week, we have been  learning to say how we are feeling. See if your child can remember.

Well done to the four finalist of the Short Tennis Tournament and good luck next week!! ( Thursday)

Please come  into see me if you have any questions about PGL next week. Don't forget to pack your teddy and toothbrush smiley

In ICT with have been making our own PowerPoints.  Here is one Rosie did at home linked to Internet Safety.

Well done to everyone who took part in the short tennis tournament yesterday. Everybody behaved brilliantly and tried their best. The children were a credit to our school. We came back with certificates and a trophy! A big thank you to Mrs Hand and Mrs Hall  for taking and looking after the children. Fantastic. smiley


Today in Open The Book- some of Oak class performed the story of Jacob and Esaw. They did really well. Here are some pictures to show you their fantastic performances.

On Tuesday, Rob came from Wimborne Tennis Club, to deliver an hour's coaching session for the children. We had great fun hitting the ball on the racket saying; fish, chips, salt, pepper and ketchup. We finished with a game called dungeon.


We spent some time outside this week, before the rain!  We used natural resources to build a castle and it's surrounding. Great effort everyone.

Another busy week. Please use the school website to access the song and actions that we need to learn for our trip to the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, BSO, on Wednesday 24th May. We are thrilled to have been chosen for this event but we have lots to do!!

Our potatoes are doing really well in their grow sacks. We are looking forward to some culinary delights!!!

  • If you haven't had a chance yet, please complete the questionnaire from our Mindfulness sessions. Ms Munro and I would like to use these evaluations to inform future planning. If you need another form, please come in and ask me. Thank you.
  • Can I also ask for the return of any ELSA evaluation forms as this informs future interventions that we may do. Thank you for those already returned.  
  • Well done to everyone who went to the ' Cricket Day'. We were blessed with the weather and had a great time at this well organised event. I hope the children came back and told you all about it. 

We have had a fun packed week of learning once again! We have been busy learning all about teeth. We now have a great display in the classroom linked to all our learning. Our Topic this term is certainly keeping us busy and we had to decide whether a certain place was a good destination for a castle to be built. We worked in groups and then had to present our findings. In Maths, we have at long last finished fractions and we are now moving onto shape. In English, there was some fantastic writing this week. We had to use imaginative descriptions which involved using powerful verbs and adverbs. Well done. 

Don't forget next week is a busy week starting with us all going to the cricket festival! Fingers crossed the sun shines. 


Welcome back everyone from the Easter break. I hope that everyone is rested and raring to go!!

Before we get well and truly entrenched in our Summer learning, I just wanted to share a few photographs and events that Outstanding Oaks did last term.  We planted seeds and recorded the changes that we saw. We also planted potatoes and these are still on the go. We had some very talented musicians share their violin pieces with the class. Well done.



We worked together to place different castles on a timeline. There was lots of great discussion.
Planting our potatoes!!
