Oak Class

Oak class is the name of the combined Reception and Year One class at Wirksworth Infant School. 

Mrs Waller is our class teacher on Mondays and Tuesdays, and Miss Brooks teaches on Wednesday, Thursday and Fridays. Teaching Assistants in our class are Mrs Bowler and Mrs King.

We have a large, bright classroom and a lots of space for outdoor activities. We often meet with our friends in Ash class to go on fact-finding walks in the nearby fields and around the town.

Hi everyone, we hope you are all keeping safe and well at home. Here are a few websites that you might like to use, they have some useful 'free' resources.  

For the phonics play resources DO NOT login ... you can access the Free games.

Whilst learning about Harvest we have loved listening to the story of The Little Red Hen. 

 Penny the school cook showed us how to make bread!!

We have enjoyed planting bulbs ready for Spring Time. 

Spring 1 2022

We began the term by learning all about 'Winter'. We went for a beautiful winter walk and looked for the signs of 'Winter' 

Trees in Winter

We have looked carefully at trees in winter and then used thick and thin lines to create pictures of winter trees. 

We hope you like them? 


During our topic about the Arctic we have enjoyed learning about Arctic animals and life in the Arctic. 

We have had fun creating 'Arctic Landscapes' using shaving foam and paint to create the marble effect for our pictures. 


It was fun investigating how blubber keeps animals warm.

Sense of Adventure 

For our 'Sense of Adventure' activities this half term we have enjoyed making and tasting 'fruit' smoothies. We have also planted our own strawberry seeds and decorated a little plant pot.
