Welcome to Oak Class

Welcome to our Oak Class page! This is the space for everything related to our Reception/Year 1 class at Sampford Peverell C of E Primary School. My name is Mrs Goodchild and I am your teacher. Mrs French, Mrs Bedford & Mrs Dave work with us throughout the week on various days. 

Our philosophy is for children to become enthusiastic, independent learners who love to come to school every day. To achieve this, we have a mixture of adult-guided activities, outdoor time and enhancements in our continuous provision, which the children access in free flow throughout the day. Play is at the centre of all learning, as it is the way to achieve the best outcomes. Children love to play, whether that be using construction, role play, messy and sensory play, mark-making and beyond!

Please read the following for key information about our class:

* At the start of every term, this web page will update with a few suggestions of what you can do at home to enrich the learning your child has been doing in school. 

* Our Class have PE once a week and we ask that your child come to school dressed in their P.E kit on this day.  The PE kit list is:

  • Black or blue Shorts
  • A royal blue round neck T-shirt
  • Trainers
  • Black or blue tracksuits for the colder months if required
In the interests of health and safety, no jewellery will be worn to school, except for earring stubs (one in each ear). Earrings must be removed for PE and hair tied back, away from the face.
For children in Reception, we use Tapestry - an online platform that records and shares the development of your child. Here we share your child's learning so please check Tapestry regularly and add observations of your own. These can be important occasions, fun days out and any learning they do at home. 

Thank you for taking the time to read this information. If you have any questions, please contact sampford@ventrus.org.uk.
