Spring Term 2024

Hello and happy new year to you all! We would first like to say a big welcome to the new children starting in  our Beatrix Potter Nursery class! We hope you have a great first term here with us a Oak Tree Primary School.

Nursery start this term looking at 'Weather and Seasons' they have lots of craft activities, sensory exploration and outside time planned for this. Nursery will be ending this term learning about Easter and there will be opportunities for parents to come into school to create and celebrate with your children.

In Reception we have started learning all about the New Year and have thought about what we would like to do this year that we did not do last year. We then move onto learning all about The Gruffalo and reading a range of our favourite Julia Donaldosn stories! We also end the term with Easter celebrations which again parents will be invited into school to join us.

In reception our forest school runs on a Wednesday afternoon - Welly Wednesdays and Nursery on Fridays - Forest Friday! Lots of fantastic outdoor learning will take place including making outdoor pictures, mini-beast hunts and creative activities matched to the book we are focusing on that week. 

Please read these with your child at least 3x per week - this makes a huge impact on their progress in reading!

PE will continue to be on a Monday afternoon for Reception and a Thursday for Nursery

If you have any questions please come and see myself (Mrs Tuxford-Flory), Miss Bradbury (Nursery teacher) or one of the fabulous member of our EYFS team- we look forward to a lovely Spring Term!
