As our class is now called 'Oak' we started the school year by exploring the mighty Oak tree. We watched the Woodland Trust's 'Year in the Life of an Oak tree,' read poems inspired by the Oak tree and took part in a class 'Tree Scavenger Hunt' to locate and observe the mighty Oak tree in our very own school grounds.
We came up with words and phrases that symbolise the Oak tree and discovered that as a class we have a lot in common with the mighty Oak!
Together we discussed the challenges COVID 19 presents to us and our communities and explored, just like the Oak tree, how we have had to be strong, adaptable, provide shelter for the vulnerable. We have also had to weather the storm and continue to grow in an ever changing landscape.
