PE days

Your child can come to school in their school PE kit (black tracksuit bottoms /leggings/school shorts, Oaky t-shirt, Oaky hoodie and pumps/trainers) on PE days

KS2 Oakies have PE and forest school on Thursdays

On forest school days your child can come to school in suitable forest school clothes.


The children enjoy a small snack each morning as part of their social skills programme.  This consists of a variety of options including toast, waffles, muffins, pancakes fruit and juice. 





Your child has been given a reading book suited to their level of reading, alongside a Reading Record. We actively encourage a love of reading by allowing children to additionally borrow a class library book. We would also recommend that children are encouraged to read as much as possible using a variety of texts from home. These could include comics or magazines.

Ideally, children will read daily, although we realise that family life is busy, so ask that they read at least 3 times per week with adults making a comment and signing the diary each time so they can earn their Reading Karate Certificates. 

We ask that all Reading Records be brought in every day so that teachers can monitor and praise home reading as well as using it to comment on reading in school. 

English and Maths

As well as their reading, we also ask the children to complete a piece of maths or English homework each week which may be in the form of a number game , phonics game or word practise  The homework will be reinforcement of their learning in class.

Home Learning Projects

There will only be one piece of Topic homework per term i.e. 3 in the year. Each term Oaky will ask the children to complete a project linked to their topic learning. Letters will be sent out informing you of this and the children will have quite a few weeks to complete the task. There will always be a choice to make learning as personalised as possible for your child 

Home-School Book

Your child will be provided with a home-school book for you to communicate any concerns, comments, out of school appointments, thoughts etc that you might wish to share with us.



The Oaky Way - Staying Connected

At Oakwood, we very much have an open door policy where we welcome open communication. If parents/carers need a quick chat or need to pass on any information, then please feel free to do so at the door when the children are being dropped off or collected. 

If you require a more lengthy conversation, then please email or ring for an appointment with the class teacher, as you can appreciate that teachers need to be in class promptly to maximise learning time. 

For safeguarding and welfare concerns, please continue to use Option 4 on the school phone line and ask to speak to Mrs Frank

As has been the case throughout the last 18 months, members of the senior leadership team will be visible at drop off and pick up times. Please only use the SLT email for urgent enquiries, as senior leaders do not have the capacity to check the emails on a daily basis now school is returning to 'normal' and we would not want messages to class teachers to get lost.
