Oak Class

 

Welcome To The Oak Class Web Page

 

 

It is now officially the summer holidays after what has been a very unusual and memorable year!

 

It was absolutely brilliant to see so many of you at school for the last three weeks of term and also at The Leavers' Service.

 

We are so proud of the progress and achievements of each and every one of you and we hope you have a fabulous summer break with your families before you move on to your new high schools.

 

I will leave this term's work on the website for a couple of weeks just in case any of you feel the urge to tackle it before Mr Beck takes over this class page in preparation for next year's Oak Class.

 

Good luck at high school; be positive, try your best and remember to smile and to say "Hi!" to as many new people as you can (you can never have too many friends!).

 

Best wishes,

Mrs Newby

 

We hope you are enjoying having a go at some of the suggested Home Learning activities.

If you are working online, don’t forget to be safe and savvy! 

Never give personal information to anyone! Think about the safety of what you are sharing or posting if you are online or on your phone.

Do not share your school log-ins or change your log-in details. We won’t ask you to do that.

Make sure you are accessing online material that is relevant for your age and tell an adult at home if you come across something that is not suitable for you, or if someone is trying to contact/talk to you that is not someone you know.

You can contact your teacher through Seesaw if you feel vulnerable or worried, or contact Childline 0800 1111.
