Oaks enjoyed exploring the number 1 and thinking about the different things which we can do 1 of, and how we […]


Oaks have loved being so close to the diggers this week! We have talked about how the builders needed to get to our outdoor area to connect some pipes and the children loved having the digger so close to our room, even though it was a little bit loud at times! We can’t wait to […]

Rain Counting!

Super raindrop counting this morning! We counted the number of raindrops and matched the correct number of raindrops to the number on the umbrella! Well done Oaks!

First we made big movements in the air and then we wrote them on the big paper with pens. Can you see our windmill circles or our sailing boats going backwards and forwards? […]

What is behind the door?

Oaks loved visiting the hall this morning and thinking about what might be behind the mysterious door which has appeared. Poppy thought that the plastic tape was “so no-one goes in it.” Hallie thought that there were “skeletons from Halloween” decorating the door. Jack noticed some red handprints on it. Oaks have really impressed the […]
