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

  • All About Me
  • Great Britain

Spring Term

  • Significant Individuals
  • Our Wonderful World

Summer Term

  • Communities
  • Create and Perform

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'.

Oak Base Governor is:
Mrs Nethercott
