Oak Class Spring Newsletter 2015 PE: Dance Starting with a Well Done! Monday Afternoon FOREST SCHOOL We are aiming to visit Well done to the class for the last week before half term. The class did a brilliant job cooking. They were able to organize themselves, follow the instructions and produce some great results. This half term has a lot of busy days to cram in. We have an Enrichment day about ‘Water’ coming up and National Book Day comes in March. Finishing the half term with an Easter service. This half-term we are looking at Poetry. Poetry can be very personal choice so if any pupils or parents have a favourite poem, poet or poetry book they would like share with the class then it would be very welcome Finally, as we will be spending time in the Forest then any parent volunteers would be greatly appreciated.
