Class Information

Mrs Bestwick will be in Oak class on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesday morning.

Miss Pavitt will be in Oak Wednesday afternoon, Thursday’s and Friday’s.

Please come in to see us if you have any questions or queries or phone the school office to make an appointment.

Oak class will be doing PE on a Tuesday with Mr Tyrrell and on a Wednesday with Mr Collinge.   Children will need to wear their PE kits into school on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

The children can bring in a healthy snack to have a playtimes and the children will need a water bottle with a drink in everyday.


For reading, we will continue to use Accelerated Reader (AR), which assesses reading levels through vocabulary and comprehension. From your child’s result, we help them choose a book at an appropriate level which they can get from the library. We would like you to continue listening to your child read in line with our homework policy (at least 15 minutes a day). Once they have read the book, they complete a comprehension quiz in school. Please ensure your child brings his or her reading book and reading diary to school every day. 

Times Table Rockstars and Spelling Shed will be set every week. 

The children will receive a Quest Journal each half term with a menu of activities to choose from.
