Oakmere thoroughly enjoyed visiting St Peter's Church on Wednesday.

Reverend Angela delivered a beautiful service all about Harvest and it was so wonderful listening to the children's singing. In our R.E. lesson, we continued to look at Harvest by thinking of things that we were thankful for. It was so lovely to hear the children say they were thankful for their family, friends and being back at school!

Oakmere have spent a lot of time in the forest this week. In our Topic lessons, we have been learning all about the importance of tools and homes for survival in the Stone Age. Using a bar of soap, the children had a go at making their own spearheads by using the knapping technique. On Thursday, the children worked in teams to create their own Stone Age shelter. We were so impressed with their teamwork skills and we managed to make a fantastic village. 

In science, the children worked as a class to make a pictogram all about Oakmere's pets! Once we had created our pictogram, the children used it to answer lots of questions such as 'Which pet is the most popular pet in Oakmere?' (dog) and 'which pet is the least popular in Oakmere?' (hedgehog and chicken).

In maths today, I set the children a challenge. If you only have 10 sticks, can you make more triangles or squares? This was very tricky and really got the children thinking outside of the box!

As it is world mental health day tomorrow, we have been thinking about how we can look after our own mental health. The children have discussed change, how to show kindness and how to show gratitude!

We hope you have a wonderful week (hopefully the weather is nicer than it has been all week!),

Miss Lewis and Mrs Carroll
