Fishy Fun!

Oak class had great fun exploring the features of fish as part of our learning project. First we used information books to find out about the features of fish, then we used real fish to identify the features. Afterwards we used what we had found out to write labels for different parts of the fish.

Outdoor learning!

Oak class enjoyed a morning exploring the outdoor environment with some of our families. Different woodland activities were set up in some of our new pods and the children had great fun exploring.
