Welcome to Saplings!
We are some of the youngest members of Oakley Primary Academy and share our classroom with Acorns.
Our teachers are Mrs Hall and Mrs Copeland who helps us to learn and we are also have Mrs Green, Mrs Bennett, Mrs Hampson, Mrs Priestley, Miss Smith and Miss Tramner who are amazing at helping us in the classroom at various times during the week.
We love to come to school and learn new things. Much of our learning is through play when we can make sense of the world around us. We enjoy learning both indoors and out, always bringing along our wellies so we can experience the different types of weather. We especially love to play in the snow or in the rain, splashing in the puddles.
We learn to become increasingly independent during our time in Saplings, organising ourselves in the morning and at home time as well as being in charge of our own learning at various times of the day.
Some of the topics we have enjoyed have been: It’s a kind of magic, Traditional Tales, All About Me, Mini-beasts and Diwali, with opportunities to try Indian food.
Here are some comments from members of Saplings about what they enjoy doing at school:
