Prospective Year R Children and Parents
Getting to know the school
As we all know, we all have to think differently and creatively in the current situations. Normally we would invite anyone in for a 1:1 tour where we would get to find our about your child and you can find out about us. Hopefully, this will be the start of seven years working together and so we believe this is incredibly important opportunity to take.
At the moment though, we are restricting people coming into our school for the safety of our children and staff and so these will be restricted in size and number. To help get to know the school, we have produced a series of videos and virtual tours so that you can experience the school. We will keep putting as much information onto this page as possible and so if there is something you would like to see, please let us know.
The opportunity to talk about your child is still vital and so if you would like to arrange a telephone meeting, please call the school on 01634 333820.
Start following the school
A good way to find out more about the school is to follow us on either Facebook or Twitter. We upload photos and information about the school which will give you an insight into the daily life.
Have a look around the school
In the middle of the school is the quiet area. We use this for picnics or for our learning.
The Large Hall
The large hall is where we have our assemblies or take part in PE
The Small Hall
This hall is also used for assemblies and PE but also this is where the Sunrise and Sunset clubs are held.
This area is for our RWI session. We have these pods which we use for Phonics every day. We work in small groups to practice the reading and writing of sounds.
In this section, you can take virtual tours of the spaces and classrooms which the Year R will mainly use. Its not as good as a real life nosey around but will give you a sense of how the school looks.
Enjoy all of the facilities the school has to offer.
The Oaklands Team
In these videos, you will get a taste of an everyday year at Oaklands. Although we are working slightly differently to normal at the moment, we try and make sure everything is as normal as possible. Even in the height of lock down, we have continued to run what makes Oaklands special even if we have had to be creative and use technology such as our virtual assemblies and Sports Day.
For a further insight into The Oaklands Team, visit our Youtube channel where you can watch lots of everyday videos such as the virtual assemblies, learning from the children and much more.
