Tall Oaks

Welcome to Tall Oaks Class

Tall Oaks class is taught by Mrs Wood and Mrs Jones in the Old School Room and their Teaching Assistants are Miss Clarke, Mrs Freeman and Mrs Scoffield. 

What We are Learning About This Half Term

Our new topic (focused on science) is called ‘Separating Mixtures’ where we will be finding out how materials can be changed, compared and separated in lots of fun and exciting ways.


Class Reading

As a class we are reading ‘The Wreck of the Zanzibar’ by Michael Morpurgo. We have been transported back in time to 1907 to find out about island life through diary entries which uncover some of the family mysteries left behind by Laura Perryman.
