Information about Oak Base:

In Oak Base we explore the seven areas of learning through our indoor and outdoor environments. We enjoy doing lots of fun activities. In Oak base we begin to introduce the children to child initiated topics each half-term. Our topics this year are:

Autumn Term

  • It's Good to be Me
  • Twinkly Lights Shining Bright

Spring Term

  • Superheroes to the Rescue
  • Awesome Authors

Summer Term

  • All around Us
  • Up, Up and Away

As you can see there are lots of fun and exciting opportunities for the children to learn through play! We share our learning as a group by using our 'wow board' and our 'home learning board'.
