Welcome to Saplings!
We are the youngest members of Oakley Primary Academy and share our classroom with Acorns.
Our teachers are Mrs Hall and Mrs Johnson and we have Mrs Flint and Mrs Green who are amazing at helping us in the classroom with everything we do.
We provide a positive, caring, safe and stimulating environment, following children’s interests through activity-based topics. We are active learners, exploring the world through a range of indoor and outdoor experiences, always bringing along our wellies so we can experience the different types of weather!
When we achieve great things (in our work or living our school values), we can move our pegs up the achievement ladder. If we get to ‘outstanding’, we get a golden ticket to place in the prize box. On Fridays, we pick two tickets to win a class prize.
Early Years will be kick starting the year with a fantastic new topic called Paws, Jaws and Claws. We will explore all things ‘beary’ and ‘beasty’ looking at familiar tales such as Goldilocks and The Tiger Who came to Tea. We will be inviting our own teddy bears to join us for a picnic as we settle into our new classroom and get to know our new friends.
Our focus this term is settling in and feeling at home. We will be learning through play as we explore the setting and learn to use all the equipment.
We look forward to sharing photos with you on our online learning platform to show you how busy we have been very soon!
