Welcome to Robins Class.
Robins were being extremely brave this term in P.E., as this term they have been using the higher apparatus for their Gymnastics. They have all done really well. Go Robins!
Dolly had a great day in Robin class for World Book Day. Look at those amazing outfits!
This term in P.E., Robins class have been having lots of fun learning how to do curling as part of their topic of the Winter Olympics. They have all performed really well, and even the staff in the kitchen got to have a go with the class. Well done to everyone!
In Reception Class, the children have been doing lots of activities to do with the Winter Olympic and they decided on Monday 19th February 2018 to take a trip to the Chatham Ski Center. The trip was very fun and very exciting, and all of the children got to experience lots of different activities to do with the Winter Olympics. These included tobogganing, snow tubing and even skiing.

Year 5 joined us for a reading session on Friday 2nd February. We all enjoyed listening to the Year 5 children read us our favourite stories and then we read to them too!
On Friday 2nd February the children took inspiration from all of our Costa role play learning and we turned Oaks Primary Academy into our very own Costa. We wrote our own menus to our parents, made cookies and lemon drizzle cake and then served them. Our parents also served us! We had such fun! We enjoyed showing our parents our amazing Learning Journeys and also shared our favourite stories with them too!
On Friday 19th January 2018, Robins had a very special visit to Costa! In class the children made their own Costa role play area and wrote letters to the manager, Ted, asking if we could come to the shop to buy our hot chocolate. We had to give him the correct money and ask and answer questions correctly. We all enjoyed our babychinos… I wonder where our learning will take us next?
On Friday 8th December 2017, we invited parents/guardians into the school to spend the morning with Reception Class. We had lots of fun and did a huge amount of interesting activities. We even had a visit from Mrs Palmer and Dolly, who spent time going and visiting all the children and some of the parents. We can’t wait for our next Stay & Play session!
Wow! What a busy term it is for Reception! We have been making our own Goldilocks rap! We have been using construction materials to make the Three Bears house, bed and chairs. We all love to get messy. Reception have been developing their phonics skills. All of the children are applying their skills and having fun learning to read and write words. The children (and adults) love having Dolly learning alongside them in class. Dolly has been helping the children to write their own versions of ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears.’ She loves singing along to the rap too!
On Thursday 21st September, Robins and Sparrows had a special visitor. Gerald the Giraffe came to see the children and read his two favourite books. We listened to Room on the Broom and the Gruffalo. After that, we chose the part of the story we liked best and created a freeze frame of the scene. We even told our own stories to our friends.
We really enjoyed having Gerald in our school. We hope he can visit again soon.
Good teaching is allowing pupils to make up for previous gaps in their learning. Pupils have good attitudes to learning because teachers plan activities which maintain pupils interest and enthusiasm. Pupils are proud of their work and this is reflected in their books, which are very neatly presented.Ofsted
The academy provides well for pupils of all abilities. The most able pupils are given work which is at the right level and are encouraged to do as well as they can and so they make good progress.Ofsted
Pupils enjoy reading and use the well-stocked library to choose a different book each week. Daily reading sessions, together with well-taught phonics (the sounds that letters make) help to secure pupils good achievement in reading.Ofsted
