Welcome to Oak Class
with Mrs Bramley, Mrs Thexton, Mrs Turner, Mrs Wales and Mrs Smith
On Friday, Gary and Karen from Yorkshire Eyeware came to talk to us about our eyes and how we see. They also talked to us about taking care of our eyes and what happens when we go to the opticians.
Apart from learning more about our senses, this visit also tied in with our study of Jobs and Careers. Gary explained that he enjoyed his job as it involved helping people. And he explained the difference between his role as an optometrist and Karen's role as an optician.
Celebrating Books And Reading
Our celebration started last week when the children dressed up for World Book Day. Thank you to all parents and carers who helped with the costumes. We loved sharing our favourite stories with each other.
The fun continued this week when our friend Conrad Burdekin came in to lead the children in a poetry workshop.
He read us some of his poems and talked to us about where he finds inspiration. He encouraged us all to have a go at writing poetry about the things we see all around us.
He talked to us about the magic of poetry and it certainly worked on Oak class.
The children came up with this fabulous poem and then performed it in front of the whole school!
Why not try performing it at home for some grown-ups. Can you remember the actions?
