Transforming lives with exceptional learning - aspiring beyond the expected
After what seems like the longest time away we have ever had, we are really looking forward to welcoming you back into school in September! Whether you are in Deers or Octopus Class, we are all looking forward to seeing you and hearing all about your summer.
We are sure that lots of you have many questions about what school will be like in September, what days PE will be on and how things will work. As soon as we know any new information, we will post it on here.
Keep your eyes peeled over the summer for more information, photos and much more!
Many of you will know Miss Robinson already and she will be teaching Year 2 Deers Class. If you are in Octopus Class, you are really lucky to have a new teacher who is starting Oakfield in September! Her name is Miss Hudspith. Mrs Holloway will be very busy supporting both Year 2 classes.
To find out more about your teacher, take a look at their "Meet the teacher" page!

There are many ways which you can support your child at home. Below are some useful websites for parents.
To practice our Spelling, Grammar and Punctuation (SPAG) knowledge we enjoy playing Karate Cats. This game has a range of questions about SPAG and you can earn points to build your Dojo. You can also try "Challenge mode". What's your highest score?
There is also now a maths version which tests your skills in all 4 operations.
We also enjoy playing a range of games using 100 Square Splat. Does your number have 5 tens? Or maybe it has 7 ones? We are very good at guessing your number by asking yes or no questions. Ask us to show you!
Important Information about SATs
As you may be aware, at the end of year 2 your child will be sitting the National SATs tests which test children to see if they are meeting the expectations of the year 2 curriculum. These consist of 2 reading papers, 2 maths papers and a spelling, punctuation and grammar test. These will be taken during the school day, by class teachers and in small groups.
In order to make sure that your child is as best prepared as they can be, we have included a SATs pack for you to have a look at.
Here are some ways you can help prepare your child for these tests in May:
