Stories with Mrs Parkyn


A Visitor for Bear



An Evening at Alfie's

Autumn in Oak

The start of the year for our youngest learners is spent getting to know each other, our local area and how life in school works. We have been spending lots of time in our woods looking at the changes that Autumn brings, carrying out science, maths, art and construction activities. The class has enjoyed getting out and about on walks and in the minibus. 


The reception children have started the exciting journey of learning to read. The children are really enjoying their Read Write Inc phonics lessons as we learn to read and write our phase 1 sounds. We have been enjoying lots of brilliant books such as Leaf Man, The Gruffalo and the Smartest Giant. We have had fun responding to them with activities inside and out. In maths, the children have been matching, sorting and comparing amounts. We have played lots of maths games and explored patterns. Our maths has really been helped by our weekly cookery session and sand and water play.

Welcome back to Oak

We are all looking forward to welcoming our youngest children back to Langdale School next week. Mrs Parkyn has made this little video to show you all the fun things there are to do in Oak classroom. I hope this helps all our children, but especially the new starters, to feel excited about joining us next week. Remember all Mrs Parkyn's story videos are still available to watch on the Oak home learning page which might help your child get to know her.
