Oak Class 2023-24

Welcome to Oak Class

This is where the journey through Broadhempston reaches its finale. In this class, our aim is to equip the children with the skills they need to succeed as they take those first steps away from Broadhempston onto the next part of their educational journey. There is lots of work to be done but lots of fun to be had too! The class is taught by Miss Barlow supported by Mr Tanner on a Tuesday afternoon and Miss Steer throughout the week. We are all looking forward to an exciting year including a residential and lots of adventures and opportunities along the way.
Reading for pleasure is key to maintaining a child’s appetite for books, learning and improving reading ability. Children who are immersed in a ‘reading for pleasure’ culture from an early age are far more likely to transition to secondary school with a bedrock of literacy ability and enquiring minds.

Autumn  2023
We have had a busy week taking on extra responsibilities around the school. Our four ambassadors have had their training from Mrs Ryder and our buddy system is up and running and began with a buddy reading session at the end of the day on Thursday so they could get to know each other a little better.
We really enjoyed our art this week exploring different Chinese painting techniques through the Four Gentlemen and painting a final piece of white plum blossoms and bamboo. In history, we have been trying to decipher Shang Dynasty hieroglyphs as well as designing our own.
A huge well done to the children who chose to represent Broadhempston at the cross country event today. It was a little soggy underfoot but you did us (and yourselves) proud and were so supportive of each other - a great community spirit.
In history this week, we investigated the hierarchy that existed in Shang society and then looked at artefacts that had been excavated by archaeologists. We had to identify each one and suggest what they might have been used for based on what we knew about this early civilisation.
